Christine Albert 'Everything’s Beautiful Now' - Moon House

Living in Austin, Texas this singer songwriter has released six albums as a solo artist. In addition, with her husband Chris Gage, there are an additional six albums available from the creative inspiration that has seen both musicians develop a true craft and longevity.

Co-produced by Christine and Chris, the eleven songs speak of enduring love and the cycle of life, remembering those who have passed to the other side. Many of the song titles give clues to the content with titles like On That Beautiful Day, At Times Like These, Keep Me In Your Heart and the opening song Everything’s Beautiful Now.

There are guest appearances from Eliza Gilkyson (a friend and neighbour) and Jerry Jeff Walker. The songs fall mainly in the folk arena and are played beautifully by the studio musicians, with inspired contributions from Chris Gage on various guitars and keyboards. There is a fine cover of the Jackson Browne song For A Dancer, with harmony vocals supplied by Troupe Gammage and his band, Speak. An appropriate inclusion, given the concepts that run through this worthwhile release.
