Welcome

...to my online home.

For me, Home is a place, and also a feeling - a deep and rich one which I've sought time and again in my music and lyrics.

So, please come on in and make yourself at home. I'm so glad you are here. I'll do my best to keep you up-to-date with the happenings in my life and share with you those things that continue to interest me.

Maybe I'll see you here, or out there on the road, but I do hope I see you. And do stay in touch, if you're so inclined. We are, after all, in this together.

From Cris --- Forty --- 40 years ago, I recorded ten songs that were known collectively as The Changer and the Changed. I painted with words and music my personal landscape and managed to elucidate some of what we know as the Universality of the human condition. Somehow, I intuitively knew that it's better to speak to all as opposed to just a few. Somehow, these songs – short on big production factors and long on emotion – came to stand as courageously as they could for women's experience in particular - their feelings and hopes and dreams. For it was primarily women who fell so hard for this music, these words, these changes that were brewing within us. It was women who recognized whatever power I had then, and who champion it to this day, helping me to continue to grow and change.

This Anniversary Year got off to a grand and glorious start as my friends and I performed this music from top to bottom at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, CA, replicating the album, yet changing it slightly, of course, as we, ourselves, have been changed. We were careful not to disturb the essence, the heart of each song because it matters so much to every listener that something still remains of the original. To undertake this precious task I beckoned to my side my dear friends, Barbara Higbie, Vicki Randle, Julie Wolf, Shelley Doty, Gina Breedlove, and Woody Simmons. What a night it was! So deep, and so fine and so full of love. We hope to bring this music to you as we'll be touring it around this year. See you then!
