CHRISTINE RENEE is a Brooklyn based artist, DJ, radio show host and sound healer hailing from Austin, TX. The daughter of a guitar player and record collector, she was born immersed in a nectar of music.
She moved from Texas to New York in 2001 and spent her days working at an East Village Record store while her nights were spent in the then emerging New Disco and House scenes. NYC dive bars are where she both trained herself as a DJ and captured the spirit of an era that will always be remembered as enchanting and vibrant.
Since 2016 she’s hosted a bi-monthly show on the Lot Radio which reveals a curiosity for the common threads of culture and history in different genres of music: how and why does it make people vibrate?
In Tuning, a series of performance/sound installations which she and collaborators explore the power of sound simplified to single notes and continuous cords, coalescing the worlds of sound healing, sound art, performance art, and dance. These installations have been part of group shows in Iceland, New Jersey and featured in the Opus Merriweather Festival of Maryland.
She also assists Chief Jake Singer Sr., a Vietnam Veteran and Sundance Chief from the Navajo nation in hosting a talk show called RADIO4RELEATIVES with DJ Nathan Corbin aka Zebrablood. R4R is spiritual ecology interpreted by keepers of traditional knowledge and environmental activists.
Christine Renee has played with Philip Glass, Nicky Siano, and Maurice Fulton, and will soon start as a resident curator at the Brooklyn club/community center: Public Records.
