Christine’s various studio collaborations include Ashton, Becker, Dente: Along the Road in which Christine teamed up with Susan Ashton and Margaret Becker for stunning trio performances.
Christine’s solo projects titled, Becoming and Voyage, allowed her to experiment with her songwriting, branching out into new creative territory.
As recording artists, she and her husband spent many years in the studio and on the road, making music and raising their 3 children.
Now with more time on her hands, Christine is writing books about songwriting and her impressions of life as an artist alongside her many other roles.
