The tales, thoughts, and processes behind the songs Christina’s written and performed.
Jimmy and I recorded this lovely secular hymn with lyrics by our friend Mark. It’s a canticle of sleepy children and long, starry nights.
“In dead fields reach lilies to the sky…” On toxic relationships, supporting each other, and hope that blooms even in the midst of cynicism.

On reclaiming songs about loves that are over, not letting things mean more than they have to, and paying attention to the way that very hard things make our true colors show in bursts of glory.
