Reviews:

"An enchanting combination of American and French favorites by a woman who is part Edith Piaf, part cowgirl, and always (all ways) wonderful."...New Texas / April 1992

"Albert's achy, crystal voice sounds so good in both languages that this project doesn't just float-it flies in spots."...Austin Chronicle / March 1992

"for those who can imagine a waltz across Texas with Maurice Chevalier."
Austin American Statesman / January 1992

A skeptical college guidance counselor once asked me what I planned to do with a major in music and languages. .. "Sing in French?"  Not a bad idea!  This one is for him, wherever he is.  Actually, my French Swiss mother came to the states as a young woman. Growing up I spent many hours sitting around the kitchen listening to her, my aunt and grandmother as French sounds rolled off their tongues.  Gorgeous.  My high school French introduced me to the music of Edith Piaf and I was hooked.  Several trips to Paris over the years to visit my grandmother further embedded the sounds of France in my psyche.  Texas is my home and where my music originates. Thus, TEXAFRANCE blends these two very special influences.  I hope these songs bring you as much pleasure as they have brought to me.  Enjoy!  Christine 

THIS IS FOR MOM, ANDREE, AND LILY, OF COURSE.
SPECIAL "MERCIS" TO MITCH WATKINS, MARK HALLMAN, DANNY LEVIN, PAUL GLASSE, JOHN IRWIN, ERNIE AND TROUPE GAMMAGE, JOANNA SULLIVAN, AND EDITH PIAF
