Christine Workman has been in music since she was very young. Singing has always been a part of her. She grew up on country music, jazz standards and Broadway, with both parents being musicians. By college she auditioned for a vocal jazz group and ended up touring with them as the College President’s PR group. Christine met a fabulous drummer there and has been performing and touring with him in every genre since.
Christine says she fell into a vocal degree, which she finished at Sam Houston State College in Texas. She has sung everything from Puccini and Gerswhin to Manhattan Transfer and Linda Rondstadt. Christine has sung with the Houston Symphony Chorus, Big Bands and Southern Gospel groups. She loves doing studio recording and has added vocals on a variety of projects.
Christine has performed on stage in Houston at Jones Hall and the El Paso Civic Center in Texas and at the Brian Head Ski Resort, OC Tanner Amphitheater and a variety of lounges and theaters in Southern Utah.
Her study and performance of all music styles has given her a wide range, but having grown up in Texas she enjoys being a part of country music when she gets the chance.

I’ve been hooked on live music since my first concert in 7th grade in front of hundreds of screaming girls. I grew up in Vegas and always had a band as well as being involved in school music. It seems I've been in a band my whole life. I
played with the Rio Virgin Band and backed up the contestants for the Jimmy Dean country music competition for 16 years.
Played jazz, classic rock and pop music as lead guitarist and play Dixieland and German music on tuba. I toured with Eric Dodge for several years which made me really get into contemporary county.
So working with Tom is a natural.
