Christine Bougie's Bandcamp page
Instrumental jazz isn't really our area, so it's hard to say
Christine Bougie makes highly melodic and highly listenable soft instrumental jazz. (email@example.com)
Recommended first album:
Hammy's Secret Life is the only one we've heard
Hammy's Secret Life
Recommended for fans only, etc.
Christine Bougie—guitars, lap steel, xylophone, jr. zither, banjo
Dafydd Hughes—wurlitzer, medlodica, organ, synthesizer
Mellow but energetic and highly listenable guitar-based instrumentals with a quirky touch. This is music that rewards close listening to hear the instruments and how's she's playing with the melodies. I suspect Christine Bougie has a sense of humour. Actually, I know it, because nothing is more clear than the title with a cover drawing featuring a hamster dressed up as an Elvis impersonator wwith a woman beside him holding his hand in a bed with hearts at the heardboard and skulls with red candles on them at the footboard. Oh, and cherubic cats. The music is not quite that quirky, but it *is* that charming. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
