Suburban Square Summer Concert Series featuring Christine Havrilla & Gypsy Fuzz
CHRISTINE HAVRILLA & Gypsy Fuzz:
Award-winning Philadelphia native Christine Havrilla brings her “well-built, catchy, smart tunes” (Upstage Magazine) to audiences everywhere, touring nationally solo and with the band in support of her new 2019 album, “Sunless Escapade”. Christine utilizes the soft gritty texture of her vocals to express warmth and honesty listeners quickly embrace as well as her aggressive, raw, trash-style guitar playing and looping. With twelve albums and 3 EPs under her belt, What’s Up Magazine exclaims, “Christine breaks out the gasoline and sets fire to the typical Roots/Folk genre with blazing guitars.” Ed Kiggins of inD Round raves, “Christine is one of the hardest working women in music. With her child prodigy-come-of-age guitar virtuosity, a supremely passionate and emotive voice, and an arsenal of wondersongs that have endeared her to a loving and devoted audience, she is in a class all of her own. She calls her unique style Neofunkadelicfolkpoptwangrock, but we simply call her brilliant!” Main Line Today Magazine lists Christine as one the 25 “Power Women ready to lead.” “Christine Havrilla is a creative, talented powerhouse wrapped up in one complete package!” exclaims Nor’easter Magazine. Mike “Jacobs” McKenna of Steel Notes Magazine says, “This ambitious Philly native manifests her talent in certain ways that allows her to create eclectic music which will grab your heart and leave a lasting memory. Her Roots/Folk/Americana background coupled with that unique individuality that she possesses allows her to be a presence that steps into many genres and gives her the tools to crossover to different music formats.” Mark Rogers from 93.7 WSTW raves, “…with Gypsy Fuzz, Christine takes especially that rock element and turns it to 11.” Named “One of the Top Ten Indie Artists” by The Advocate Magazine, The Washington Post writes, “(Havrilla’s) songs are intelligent and moving, the arrangements are incisive and colorful, and, best of all, Havrilla consistently comes across as a confident and seasoned performer.” Christine has shared the stage with artists like Brandi Carlile, Chely Wright, Jeffrey Gaines, America, Jill Sobule, Janis Ian, Antigone Rising, Melissa Ferrick, & Davy Knowels to name a few.
