Triply, mystic, and sweetly fierce, Christine Leakey has been artsy since the zoetrope stage of her life. Born to see shapes and colours and blessed with a gorgeous voice, Leakey made music to put those shapes and colours a life of their own. Fearlessly embracing the Hamilton music scene during her Mohawk College years, she used the excellence and support to full advantage, forming what Tim
Gibbons refers to as the first “girl band” of its type out of Hamilton. Double Feature Creature, their CD – Returns, is as raw and fresh as the space girl vibe it offers. Seeing music as a natural extension, the WarholIan pantomime played out in highly charged fits and spurts. It’s hard to nail her sound down easily, and keeping the listener comfortably off foot is kinda what Christine Leakey does best. Giving it her all means going to where they get you, and Christine Leakey has found music family members in all kinds of places. Recording with and art designing American recording art Dave Kerzner’s recent release NEW WORLD, she got to sing with the ladies from Pink Floyd, a thrill to be sure gives you an idea about just how sweet her voice is.
Dropping by on a gorgeous late fall evening, Christine brings some new songs to play live, and some videos of her songs from 2012’s Tapping Trees in a Trinket Box of Treasure to round off a fun night at Barber Shop Podcast.
