-You are your own greatest teacher. If anyone ever tells you that you can't or you're not good enough, it is up to YOU to choose to believe that or not.

Highlight Moment of the morning: Teaching the chorus of "We Are One" to the students and watching them improv dance while singing along. Check out photos and a more detailed write up on my Facebook https://www.facebook.com/ChristieLenee Previews of the song "We Are One" and others can also be heard on the website,www.christielenee.com. :)
Speaking of "We Are One" ... tomorrow is the OFFICIAL CD RELEASE of the "Live at Hideaway Cafe Album"! This project has been a long process and I'm thoroughly excited to share it with you. Hard copies will be available at the show tomorrow night in St Pete, FL at the Ale and the Witch from 9pm to Midnight.
**Note: the OFFICIAL DIGITAL RELEASE will be on Thanksgiving so mark your calendars if you'd like to download the album from anywhere! This was delayed for the license process for my cover version of "Landslide" ... but I hope it's worth the wait. :)
Info for show tomorrow night (Friday the 21st)!
Instrumental guitarist/composer and singer/songwriter Christie Lenée releases the "Live at the Hideaway Cafe" album! An upbeat celebration performance and 5 piece band will take place from 9pm to midnight, delivering profound instrumental compositions with heartfelt song lyrics and modern tapping/fingerstyle guitar. This uplifting conscious music has been compared to Michael Hedges meets Dave Matthews, Joni Mitchell and Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, with flute/sax and keys/organ harmonizing melodious guitar pieces. The live band infuses elements of jam and world music with symphonic intros and extended improvisational sections. Tracks from the "Live at the Hideaway Cafe" album can be previewed on the website,www.christielenee.com.
"Christie Lenée is a wonderful spirit making beautiful music on the guitar. She has epic compositions that take one on a journey through time. " (Tim Reyolds, Guitarist for Dave Matthews Band and TR3)
