Christine IX at first was an Italian one girl band with a loopstation: Shotgun Babies’ frontwoman decided to share some tunes that she had hidden for years. Now she has a live band. After she released the first single, “Black Corolla”, she recorded an album, “Can I frame the blue?”, in which she played several instruments and her live musicians recorded too. She won a crowdfunding campaign on the Italian site Musicraiser, she reached 118% of her goal and so she could realize this work.
