Born in the New South Wales coastal town of Coffs Harbour, Christina grew up in Brisbane and in her early teens the passion to learn to play guitar was blooming. After moving to Sydney she met and started taking lessons from guitarist Steve Crofts (Guitarist with 'The Bombers' & 'Black Cat Moan' and earlier 'Topaz'). The pair later married.
 

Playing in various covers and original bands and with influences such as ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, David Lindley, Rory Gallagher, Bonnie Raitt, Jeff Beck, Johnny Winter, Rose Tattoo and of course Steve Crofts, Christina has developed her own distinctive characteristic guitar sound and style.


In the late 1990's she formed and fronted on vocals/guitar 'Croftstown Traffic' - a three piece blues/rock covers band, which later become 'Croftstown' with the addition of Steve on guitar following the end of his other musical commitments (The Bombers)  'Croftstown' enjoyed several years of gigging around Sydney releasing the self funded album Croftstown 'Unboogie' album in 2006.

Croftstown was eventually shelved due to the impact of Huntington's Disease on Steve and his declining ability to play guitar, and in 2008 despite actually having no band as such, Christina released her own self funded debut album 'Midnight Train', consisting of 9 original tracks this album received great reviews and saw her embark on a new phase of her music career. 

 

Christina has worked relentlessly to pursue her musical career despite devastating personal losses and has been rewarded with regular gigs in and around Sydney, Central Coast and Newcastle was well as several festival appearances including 'Blues on Broadbeach', Agnes Water Blues Roots & Rock Festival' and 'Docklands Blues Festival' in 2018 -  'Australian Blues Festival Goulburn', 'Blues Roulette Kings & Queens Tour', 'St Kilda Blues Festival'  Echuca Winter Blues Festival and Cooma Blues & Roots Festival in 2019.  Previous festival appearances include Thredbo Blues Festival (2011 & 2015) Mitchell Creek Rock 'n Blues Festival (2015) Narooma Blues Festival (2000 and 2013) and Bimbadgen (2008). 
 

Recording for what was intended to be a full album commenced in early 2016 but was scaled down to a four track EP "Like We Used To" which saw the first track "Breakway" debut at #1 in the AMRAP AirIt regionals charts and the EP remained in the top 20 of the ABARAC charts for 6 months. 

Steve passed away  15th August 2016.

 

The new CD 'Just How Love Feels' is out now (October 11th 2019) and will be available from this website and iTunes, Spotify as well as being sold at her shows.
