About

CHRISTINE COLLISTER

‘..boundary breaking is routine for Collister and makes her one of the finest grown-up vocalists on the planet…’ – Q

Touring for the first time in four years, Christine will be performing songs from the

“Children of the Sea” project along with a selection of old favourites.

2024: Christine’s career now spans an incredible 40 years. Over that bridge of time she has released 24 albums, a DVD celebrating 20 years in the business and an acclaimed single with the BBC: the theme tune for “The Life and Loves of a She-Devil” in 1987.

Throughout, she has mesmerized and astounded with her unique blend of soul, blues, pop, jazz, country and folk, and today she remains as powerful, subtle, effortless and relevant as ever.

Collister grew up on the Isle of Man, and her professional recording career began after she moved to the UK in the mid 1980’s, when she came to national attention singing the theme for the BBC Television series The Life and Loves Of A She Devil. A period of great critical and commercial success when working with Clive Gregson was followed by a fruitful and enduring association with Richard Thompson.

Christine is a magical live performer, with her gravity defying voice, assured and impressive live performances and great personal charm has become a familiar and popular name on the ‘live’ scene including major international festivals from Glastonbury to Cambridge, Winnipeg to Port Fairey.

“ … a voice personally delivered by God.” The Times

‘Christine Collister has a killer voice. As full as Dusty Springfield or as blue as Alison Moyet’ – Froots

To be released in 2024 - Children Of The Sea is a very special project of 9 original songs inspired by Manx Folklore and a magical sense of place. Part funded by the Isle Of Man Arts Council, Culture Vannin and Fledgling Records, The CD is accompanied by a beautiful book complete with lyrics, inspirations and stories with original illustrations by Manx artists. It promises to be Collister’s finest release and marks a turning point in her authentic artistic expression.

Christine has always enjoyed the collaborative process and has been an integral part of many and varied musical projects over the years. Her most recent collaboration with brilliant Australian guitarist Michael Fix has been a successful and delightful surprise for them both. They released their second CD “North&South” in October of 2019 with a sell out tour of the UK followed by an equally successful tour of the Australian Festival scene in 2020.

‘Christine Collister’s singing was powerful and emotional, shifting effortlessly from soft and angelic to knock you out Janice Joplin style. Michael Fix’s guitar was equally superb. He provided tasteful support in the most charming way and would then explode into amazing virtuoso runs across the finger board, all impeccably tasteful and clean.’

– Troubadour (Woy Woy NSW) concert review, Michael Fine

Christine’s natural warmth and intimate connection with audiences coupled with her stunning voice, make her concerts delightfully memorable events.

‘…one of the world’s finest..’ – Q

Christine also toured and recorded with the female super group Daphne’s

Flight. In 2017, 21 years after their first collaboration, they released a highly

acclaimed second album: "Knows Time, Knows Change" on Fled’gling Records.
