Christina Lux stood for the very first time on stage over 30 years ago. She celebrated her 50th birthday this year and has released her eighth CD album. It’s a very fine live CD. “Writing a song is like having a conversation with myself and spinning it out further with my guitar”. “I look for things which are like a short embracement, a moment in which ease and lightness appear and in which words and sounds simply fall into place by themselves. I am there – for that moment" Christina Lux has always let herself break free from the structure of a song and allowed things to be created if they wanted to be. Her submersion into the depths of words and the emotional encounters created by them is her main drive. This is also the motor around which everything revolves enabling her to go ahead and write new songs. Since 2006, on the release of her first German lyrics on her „Coming Home at Last“ CD, she has discovered her own native language more and more for her lyrics.“ I have always dug emotionally very deep with my lyrics and at the time it was important for me to use English so I could create some distance from them. In the meantime I now enjoy knowing that my audiences are getting the whole story".
Christina Lux has been on the road with her songs since the beginning of the 90’s. She has a big and sensual voice which ranges from powerful and strong to soft and sensitive. She packs her personal and meaningful lyrics into emotionally moving songs. Lux tells her stories with minimalistic instrumentation and a glowing stage presence making her into one of the most charming and captivating song poets in Germany. Innumerable concerts have been played by Lux and left her audiences inspired. Lux‘ music is charismatic, personal and original. She springs easily from English to German, makes her guitar sound like an entire band, and tells wonderful, short philosophical stories in between her songs. Glittery or sugary pop songs are not her style. Lux shines differently. Her music has an emotional intensity, is minimalistic and direct. Words and music go together down familiar paths and unrequited dreams. She has a big voice which is sometimes soft and sensitive and which can also breakout unruly from the norm. A pearl in the sea of songwriters. Christina Lux released her first CD in 1998. She started her musical career in 1984 as singer in a rock band, journeyed through the world of jazz and landed in a multi-cultural a cappella formation called the Vocaleros. She started to write her own songs in the early 1990s.
