Christina Bailey - American Composer and Project Artist
Her first band, indie-pop Big American Family ( "Talking Heads/ Blondie Sandwich" - Monterey County Weekly) was an in-your-face family band featuring two sister-lead female vocalists, a heavy drum and bass duet between brothers, and an electric banjo with psychedelic sounds.
Big American Family warmed the stage for various headlining acts that came through the Central Coast, and released an EP with Gadgetbox Studios titled Conflict Of Interest.
As the band fizzled out, the remaining family members started a new project with two local female artists. What started out as a single-song afternoon project between strangers, turned into honeymoon, an all-female fronted Alternative-Americana band formed in Monterey California in 2010.
Dubbed a magical union by Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead the night of their first show, Phil called the women "Sirens & Goddesses" which became the theme to their first EP as a band, After The Flood, feat. heartbreaking tune, Processional.
The women of honeymoon toured the Pacific Northwest with Americana All-Stars (Jackie Greene, Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers, Furthur), and found a home in the mountains of Big Sur where the ladies took to songwriting retreats in yurts and local shows at the enchanting Henry Miller Library.
After scoring a film with honeymoon in 2012, Christina spent the Summer touring California with new project Christina Bailey & The Civil Men which led to her first solo project, the crowd-funded EP Love & War released in Nashville after Christina relocated to the area two years later.
Still living in Nashville TN today, Christina is currently working on the launch of new online project The Joey Market as well as launching the workshop production of new original music Outta Nowhere in late 2018.
