Magenta singer Christina released the title-track from his upcoming third solo album “Bar Stool Prophet” due out on October 06, 2023 via Tigermoth Records. Purchase and Stream the track on Bandcamp:
“Some of the demos go back to 2018, so if the pandemic hadn’t hit then I think the album would have been out in 2021,” Christina explains. “It was hard to gain momentum after 2 years of lockdown but I got reacquainted with the songs and I’m really pleased with the outcome. The decision to name the album Bar Stool Prophet was a nod to a few friends that had tragically lost their lives from depression and alcohol.
So many talented musicians and singers have helped bring my songs to life. I was so excited when Steve Hackett contributed to Rise Again with an emotionally charged harmonica solo. It gives me shivers every time I hear it. I’ve been spoiled over the years to have such talent on tap from my Magenta cohorts, Chris Fry, Jiffy Griffiths and Dan Nelson. Steve Balsamo sprinkled his magic on BV’s along with ChimpanA’s Tony Dallas and the power house that is Kirstie Roberts. Peter Jones never fails to deliver and Ryan Aston (from our Trippa days) added some great drums alongside the amazingly versatile guitar style of Hywell Maggs.“
CD is in digifile format with 12-page booklet and comes with an autographed colour postcard (while stocks last)
Christina has co-written all 10 tracks with long-time collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Rob Reed (Magenta, Trippa, ChimpanA), who also mixed and produced the album.
