Christie Lamb recently returned from a very successful Tamworth Country Music Festival - she not only made it all the way to the Toyota Star Maker finals but she was also voted 'Most Popular New Independent Artist 2012' at the Meet n Greet Country Awards during the annual event.
The young Western-Sydney based artist performed at eighteen spots including performances with the legendary Redd Volkaert (who has worked with Merle Haggard, Brad Paisley and many others), she opened the show for three-time Golden Guitar nominee Aleyce Simmonds and appeared at a songwriters' spot with talented singer songwriter Jay Collie from Jonahs Road. Christie also had a Cavalcade float dedicated to her by the The Johanna Dance School - where students danced to her songs behind the float.
Returning home, Christie is now focusing on the release of her self-titled debut EP which was produced by award-winning Rod McCormack. The EP features four tracks co-written by Christie and fellow songwriters Jay Collie, Jasper Somerville-Collie, Gina Jeffreys and the EP's producer. The lead single, 'Mr Wrong' - co-written by Christie and sibling songwriting team Jay and Jasper, is a tongue-in-cheek take on failed relationships and has just entered the Country Tracks Top 30 while the accompanying video clip is currently in production by multiple Golden Guitar winner Duncan Toombs. http://www.christielamb.com/You Tube
