Here’s what we’re reading:

–Brad Wagner, Paste Magazine, August 27, 2021

“It’s the next exciting chapter in the career of one of folk country’s most entrancing new voices and should find her featuring in more than a few end of year lists come December.”
–Jof Owen, Holler.Country, April 14, 2022

“A magnetic performer with a show-stopping voice… Sweeney has crafted an enchanting approach to folk, one that retains its emotive storytelling roots while blurring its genre lines.”
–Caleb Campbell, Under the Radar Magazine, March 16, 2022

“New York-based Christine Sweeney throws together country, folk, blues, soul and pop.”
–Matt Wickstrom, The Boot, March 31, 2022

“The artist expertly navigates soul-fueled compositions, more often than not informed by her own personal, innately relatable experiences.”
–Jonathan Frahm, For Folk’s Sake, April 11, 2022

“Christine Sweeney’s singing and songwriting skills will stop you in your tracks.”
–Lauren Leadingham, American Blues Scene, March 2, 2022

“Soulful… impassioned… Even when telling a deeply personal story, Christine has the ability to tap into universal feelings.”
–Neil Ferguson, Glide Mag, January 14, 2022

“As a live performer she has built a formidable reputation on the folk-influenced and Americana gig circuits… The beauty of Sweeney’s style is that it works with a full rock’n’roll showband, or just with her and a guitar in a more intimate setting.”
–Tongue Tied, February 5, 2022

“Magnificent… great artistry… gives chills.”
–Music Arengagh, March 23, 2022
