“Cristina Vane evokes Bonnie Raitt and early PJ Harvey with “Badlands,” from the newly released album Nowhere Sounds Lovely. Vane’s sizzling slide guitar gets a starring role along with her hypnotic melody, reinforced in lines like “People gather like dead birds.” Entrancing stuff.” – Rolling Stone
Cristina Vane, is an Italian born, emerging Americana artist out of Nashville. Her signature bottleneck slide guitar playing, travis picking, and clawhammer banjo are tied together by her silky, powerful voice and her vivid songwriting. Vane’s musical perspective is decidedly unique and authentic.
Cristina’s authentic sound is compelling, and has resulted in direct support opportunities with Bob Weir, Wynonna Judd, Cass McCombs (The Fillmore SF), Town Mountain, Duane Betts, and Willi Carlile. She sold out her 2021 Station Inn debut and was featured in the Bank of America ad. for Ken Burns’ “Country Music” documentary.
“Like a young Bonnie Raitt, Vane sings from both her voice and her supple, bluesy guitar playing almost simultaneously–her sound as earthen as the South Dakota landscape with which she sings about on “Badlands.””– American Songwriter
