On Saturday night I had the privilege of shooting Christina Custode for the release of her cd From Here. She is an extremely talented person who arranges and writes her own music drawing heavily from her personal experiences. Her performance encompasses everything a great performance should emotion, fun, stories, spot on vocals and beautiful arrangement.
One thing I learned about Christina tonight is that she has an easygoing way of telling the story of her songs. Light of Day (Song for Kelly) and Each Time were dare I say a lyrical reality check if you take in what she is truly saying. The somber subjects tugged at heartstrings and sucked the whole audience in. She cruised through her new music to an active crowd. Whether solo or with the band she possess an endearing quality to command the stage from behind her keyboard.
She is filling her own niche and making the music she wants. I got to talk with her for a few minutes before her set. There is a passion that is evident, a personality that exudes creativity and fun. The future is bright with big things coming. The great thing about the music industry is you can make a big impact from a small place and are no longer beholden to record labels to have your music heard.
Go hear her like NOW. I recommend you visit her at and drop her a line below, you know you want to:
