Christine Lavin

Biography

I just released my 24th solo album, and have produced 10 compilations showcasing the work of songwriters whose work I love. I can't read music, learned by watching lessons on PBS when I was 12 years old. In September 2019 I spent a month at Yaddo, working on a theatrical project. I love songwriters - I tell singers, "Please call me if you are looking for special material. If I haven't written what you're looking for, chances are good I will know the songwriter who has." In April 2019 I was inducted into the Rochester NY Music Hall Of Fame. Album #25 coming in 2020. Songs of mine have been sung and recorded by Sutton Foster, Betty Buckley, Karen Ziemba, Susan Egan, Andrea Marcovicci, and others.

I now make videos and on occasion sing live to videos in concert. I also twirl batons (that's the "other" marked below).

I am "old school" when it comes to songwriting. Johnny Mercer said to Ervin Drake, Ervin Drake said to me, and I say to you: "If your song doesn't rhyme exactly, it's because you haven't finished working on it."
