Her voice is angelic,sultry,and full of passion.Her piano driven music is beautiful, full of images,and will separate her from the rest. It’s a playful album with strikingly haunting ballads. From the opening notes on Wasting My Time, where Christina’s virtuosity on the piano is presented to the world, a signature sound that can be heard through all her songs. Her piano skills are not her only strength, on the song Nothing, Christina’s magical voice enthralls her audience and holds them hostage in daze of tempting music. A bluesy beautiful setting where you picture yourself sitting on the back porch staring into the mountains is felt from the music and lyrics. The album is a treasure and no song should be skipped. You might even feel the need to listen to it over and over, it’s really that great. The timeless quality of her music will help her endure through the saturated industry of fabricated singer songwriters.” – Indie Music Review“Outstanding!! Christina Custode’s voice is pure and clear as a bell. She brings all the nuances inherent in the melodic sweetness of this song and imparts them to the listener like a shower of sparkles that are uplifting :-). I loved the words that have such a deep-seated pain in them, the progression of the song from a soulful, sad rendition to a defiant I-dare- you. This is an outstanding song 🙂 🙂 :-)” – Ricky Kej, Grammy Winner, review of “All for Her” Amazon Review“5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful American Roots Ballad. Recommended! ”All For Her” is a soulful American Roots ballad that bridges a classic jazz sound with traditional country elements, with a hint of pop influence. This song centers on Christina’s defiant and emotional lyrics, and is complemented by outstanding vocals and instrumental performances on the piano and drums. The clarity of Christina’svocals gave me goosebumps. Sung with purity and candor, the melody is perfect for the lyrical content. Christina Custode is a talented musician and a true storyteller that I imagine the world will be seeing a lot more of!. Recommended.” – White Sun, Amazon Review“5.0 out of 5 stars That Voice! Wonderful single….Wonderful Voice!! Christina hits the mark with “All for Her”” – Matt Mayer, Amazon Review“Some great stuff here! Sounds a bit like Lennon’s Imagine and has a particularextra quality in the voice.”- Stuart Epps ( UK Producer)“Well crafted song and lovely voice! Great chorus, love the stop !! Greatbackground vocals! Great pianist, Elton would love this !! ITS BRILLIANT !!!”– Stuart Epps (UK Producer)“Ahhhh a breath of fresh air. Amongst a number of predictable tracks I have beencritiquing, finally a track with true emotion, serious talent and major commercialpotential. Beautiful lyrics that have been very well constructed and perfectlydelivered by a fantastic voice oozing with passion, emotion and charm. You arehugely able and I would love to hear more. I think you would give many of thefemale vocalists in the UK a run for their money and think you should try andpush this here as much as you can. It is very current and given the commercialsuccess of other current female vocalists (Adele, Ellie and so on) with similarwork, I’m sure you would get a good following. …A note about the fantasticdelivery of keys and cello must be made too. You are obviously a talented all-rounder. The keys are played as passionately as the lyrics are sung. The threeinstruments ebb and flow interlinking and complimenting each other. More, more,more we say!” – Martyn Ellis, Managing Director – Alemar Music Limited, UK“A little Sara Bareilles at times, some Lisa Loeb at others, even a bit of Basia atone point. Christina Custode has a little of everything for you here. Nothing &Crush are the big power ballads surrounded by pop songs like The One Thingand The LaLa Song. There’s an excellent chance her first big hit will come fromthis album.”- John Anthony, Radio Personality To stream or download these materials, follow this link:
