Christina Gaudet ~ Recording Artist / Singer / Songwriter / Producer / Actor
Christina, grew up in the famous French Quarter of New Orleans, listening to the funky soulful sound of Louis Armstrong, Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, Irma Thomas, Aaron Neville & The Neville Brothers. It was that gumbo of musical spice that seduced her into an unending love affair with music.
One of the highlights of her career was to work with Grammy Winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame legends Leiber and Stoller as the lead in their Workshop for Tales of Manhattan (Broadway). It was an honor to have been accepted as a Grammy Ballot Artist for the 57th Grammy Awards for her Album, ‘Wild Things’.
She has also shared the stage with Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Tony Award winner Ruth Brown in Stagerlee (Broadway, written by Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and Grammy Award winner Allen Toussaint (NYNO Records).
She recorded with Toussaint at his famous Sea Saint Studios in New Orleans and released SeaSaint Sessions with him in 2007. Christina also had the privilege to work on The Middle of Nowhere (Off-Broadway), written by Oscar and Grammy Winner legend Randy Newman.
Internationally Christina has toured throughout Europe. Some of the many countries include; Germany, Italy, Yugoslavia, France, Austria, England, and Finland. It was a great experience for her to be able to perform at the Schubert Festival in Vienna, Austria. That endeavor led to performing for the great composer Aaron Copeland in a tribute performance to his music. South American tours include Mexico, Central America, South America and the Caribbean Islands.
Christina has performed at the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, (where the Beatles had one of their first performances in the U.S.). Christina has also performed and toured with Allen Toussaint as a featured singer. Her last performance with him was at the Blue Note in Tokyo, Japan.
