Broken Lies And Bleeding Hearts (CD)
The release of the long-awaited debut solo album by Magenta frontwoman Christina, "Broken Lives and Bleeding Hearts", will be released on June 1st via Tigermoth Records. Christina has co-written all 10 tracks with long-time collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Rob Reed (Magenta, Trippa, ChimpanA) who also mixed and produced the album. Other guests on the album include John Mitchell (It Bites, Frost), Steve Balsamo (The Storys, ChimpanA), Troy Donockley (Barbara Dickson, the Bad Shepherds) and Chris Fry (Magenta), with a wonderful remix of "Deep Ocean" by Jem Godfrey (Frost). Says Christina of the album: " Although it's not Prog, it's pretty varied and I hope that Magenta fans will find plenty to like. It's certainly been a labour of love, and I really believe it's the finest set of songs I've ever written." Varied it certainly is, from the acoustic, gospel-tinged opener "Free" to the progressive pop of "Immortality", and the dramatic balladry of "Tales of Tales of Broken Hearts", not to mention the bluesy swagger of "Do or die" or the smooth, jazzy "Deep Ocean". These are songs that are immediate yet full of depth, beautifully performed by the Cardiff-based singer songwriter. Christina also talks about the heartfelt subject matter of the album: "All of the songs look at the up and downs of human relationships. Inevitably, there's a lot of heartbreak involved, but I've also tried to show how resilient the human heart can be, so there's an upbeat message too. " She laughs. "So I guess, it's a bit of a concept album!"
