2017 International Fingerstyle Guitar Champion Christie Lenée is a captivating performer with a devoted following among instrumental, folk-pop and rock band audiences. Combining guitar mastery, contemporary singer/songwriter and a passion for storytelling, she thrives onbringing people together through the language of music.
Christie’s unique guitar work and profound instrumental compositions are well described as‘Michael Hedges meets Joni Mitchell andDave Matthews.’ Among the vast community of fingerstyle and tapping guitarists, her niche is the integration of melodic pop lyricism with catchy hooks that excite both modern commercial listeners and classic purists. With a menu of percussive and sonic effects, and larger than life sounding instruments, her solo shows embody layers of orchestral elements with a wide array of dynamics and harmonic textures.
Christie’s pieces have been showcased at the NAMM Show in Anaheim and Nashville, live on National Television and Radio, and on stage with artists such as Tim Reynolds (guitarist for Dave Matthews Band), Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel, Amy Ray from the Indigo Girls, and Stanley Jordan to name a few. Her most recent album “STAY” was one of three finalists for “Best CDof 2016” (Indie Acoustic Project Awards), including the song “Love Who You Are” nominated for a 2016 Posi Award in the category “Songs for Personal Transformation.”Christie spent most of 2017 on tour in the US, Australia, and many countries around Asia. She’s now back in the studio recording new songs, intentionally crafted to weave her compositional guitar wizardry with folk-pop lyricism and ever exceeding vocal performances. The first three singles on deck, “Free World Citizen,” “Call My Heart Back Home” and “Dear Julia” also include musical contributions by the acclaimed bassist/musical prodigy Tal Wilkenfeld (Jeff Beck, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea), and world-renowned drummer/percussionist Allison Miller (Ani Difranco, Brandi Carlile, Natalie Merchant).

Sunday, August 9th, 2015 we lost a kindred soul, gifted songwriter performer and champion of human rights. Our grief is overwhelming…Audrey Auld performed at our very first house concert, and what a night it was! Remembering you with sweet, sassy thoughts, Audrey as I watch it again. I hope you’re making as much noise in that angel band as you made down here with us. Play on girl, play on.
