Growing up, country-pop artist Christie Huff found purpose and hard fought confidence singing her heart out along to karaoke tracks down in her parent’s basement. She’s emerged a young artist with sass and a gift for sharp-witted pop. Christie’s latest, Roll The Dice, is a feisty collection of infectious modern country.
“When I was in school, I struggled with dyslexia, and it definitely had an effect on my self-esteem. But I am a hard worker and come from a family that is successful, so that didn’t stop me from getting A’s in school,” confides Christie. “What brought me confidence was my singing and performing on stage. Later, when school became harder, I would escape into my music. Some days I would come home and write three songs in one day.”
Christie has released a previous album and performed nationally. She has garnered acclaim for her poignant song and video for “Soldier Song.” The song was the first song she ever wrote, and it was inspired by seeing pictures of her friend saying goodbye to her husband as he left for deployment in Afghanistan. The emotionally charged video was an Official Selection of the 2014 GI Film Festival in Washington DC over Memorial Day Weekend, and a selection in the 2015 Filmed In Utah Awards.
Live performance highlights include appearances at venerated venues such as the Marquee Theater in Tempe, Arizona, the House of Blues in Hollywood, and the Hard Rock Café in San Diego. She’s also been a special guest performer at the Global Volunteers 30th Anniversary Gala, the Jim Brown Legends of Football Superbowl Gala, and the Cox Communications Media Sportsravaganza. For both her albums, Christie has worked with legendary producer Jeff Dayton, best known for his 15-year tenure with Glen Campbell, and for working with Kenny Chesney, George Strait, and a stable of other contemporary and classic country music icons. Flip Magazine praises Christie thusly: “Barely out of her teens, Huff’s voice is well beyond her years. There is a maturity, depth, and richness to her voice that drives each note. With equal doses of blues and folk, she finds a perfect spot in the genre of country music, but in truth her style and sound manages to lend itself to a much wider audience. “
