    Christie Huff is an 18 year-old singer/songwriter from Mesa, Arizona. She has been singing her entire life, but just took up songwriting (and the guitar) in the past year.

Of course, a lot of her music is about the ups and downs of relationships and just being a young woman going after her dreams.

    Christie just finished recording her first album in Nashville and has been playing at different venues throughout the valley. She gets rave reviews everywhere she plays. She already has several music videos as well as videos of live performances up on her YouTube channel. She brings a fresh perspective to the country music scene.

    Original Alternative and Cover Band

A literal endorsement of simplicity. Summer flowers. The sound of a far-off train. One, two, three, just like that, simplicity in music is elusive. Sublime. In the end it's best to just listen. Isn’t it?
