Christy has been writing, recording and performing as a guitarist and hired gun for more than 20 years. A soulful, rich and road-worn blues voice teamed with searing guitar virtuosity.
The backdrops and rhythm guitar work in both his covers and original material contain glimpses of a fascination with harmony and melody which would be at home in jazz arrangements, and are lavish demonstration of his time-earned experience. Lyrically there is a resolute search for beauty in the commonplace, with occasional nods to the noir.
His sets display an absorbing array of raw electric guitar sounds, from 50’s clean Stratocasters to fuzz-infused British Blues. All with just 3 carefully selected pedals, 2 character-filled guitars, and 1 beast of a Tweed amp. With an unassuming honesty and depth of knowledge of modern and traditional blues, Christy performs with real backbone and fearlessness which begs the question he is asked most often … ‘where have you been?’
