Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Born: September 2, 1973    

Vocalist Christina Watson's impressive range appeals to music lovers from all backgrounds.

Classically trained, she also possesses a powerful soprano voice, which is showcased by her role in the Nashville based vocal jazz quartet, 3rd Coast Vocals (www.myspace.com/3CV).

With her 2004 debut CD “All About Love,” Christina Watson caught the attention of jazz fans all around the globe, garnering reviews in publications such as Sweden’s Orkester Journalen, the world’s oldest jazz magazine.

”I enjoyed All About Love very much. I don't think you should have a problem getting people to recognize your talent.”

-- Kevin Mahogany Jazz Vocalist

“[All About Love is] a sparkling debut... [Christina Watson's] voice is warm and seductive, like draping yourself in the soothing embrace of a snuggly blanket on a crisp fall day. ...[She's] a talented songwriter... Put her in the same league as Norah Jones and Diana Krall--she's that good, from her first scat to her last yearning note. Her fresh interpretations of songs previously recorded by others will likely draw comparisons to Eva Cassidy.”

-- A fan in Cincinnati
