Another of the long-thought lost interviews.

Christy Howard is originally from the small town of Clifton, Tennessee. Singing and playing piano by age 6, she is today a Blues vocalist and songwriter based in Detroit, Michigan. Her diverse musical background, combined with her smooth and sultry vocal style, gives her a unique sound.

Drawing on her long career in the seedy music business for inspiration, her lyrics deal with cheating, mistreating, gambling, drinking and other debauchery familiar in the Blues.  She won the 2006 Detroit Blues Challenge (acoustic duo with guitarist Jeff Howard) and competed in the 2007 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee.
