CHRISTIE LENÉE--singer, songwriter and 2017 international fingerstyle guitar champion--has released "Castle On The Hill," herinnovative renditionof the Ed Sheeran hit song. Released on April 25, LENÉE's arrangement bridges the gap between virtuosic tapping style guitar and contemporary singer/songwriter."Castle on The Hill" is available now via iTunes here and on Spotify here. "My intention with this project is to artistically weave the tapestries of modern fingerstyle guitar with contemporary folk-pop," says LENÉE. "I'm doing my best to bridge the gap so it's not 'instrumental' or 'vocal,' and so that every song has a little bit of both. Even when it means light vocalizations on an instrumental piece, or a lyrical song with orchestral segments, I am enjoying combining the two."

LENÉEis featured in the May print issue of Guitar Player magazine (on stands now) which dives deep into the musician's fingerstyle guitar technique. AXS.com's Jim Wood noted "through the use of harmonics and tapping, Lenée's infectious style utilizes all parts of the guitar and combines elements of folk, rock and pop into one tasty and eclectic musical stew." (April 14, 2018) She recently told Digital Journal that "years ago, I set my intention to be an inspirational songwriter, though over time I've come to realize that inspiration comes in many forms. Talking about the dark and the light, the beauty and moments of pain are all forms of inspiration." (April 19, 2018)

After wrapping up a performance earlier this week in New York City at Rockwood Music Hall, LENÉE is continuing on her national 29-date tour which will make additional stops in Richmond, VA, Mobile, AL, Palo Alto, CA, Los Angeles, CA, Nashville, TN and Ashville, NC, among many others, before wrapping in Tampa, FL at Straz Center for the Performing Arts on November 18. More information on tour dates can be found here.

During off time while touring, LENÉE has been spending countless hours in the studio recording songs for an upcoming full-length album. Three new singles are next on deck for digital release (details TBA).

"For new fans who discover my music, I hope they feel a little closer to the heart," says LENÉE. "Many have expressed at live shows that when they see a performance, it's as if I'm entering another dimension. This is true in the fact that music is an infinite universe, and with that, I'm beyond grateful to contribute to it and invite others in."
