One of the most recognized singers in the Australian music community returns with Away, a collaborative project featuring a cast of the most talented improvising musicians in the country.

Christine's originals and several inspired covers are used as the basis for free-ranging, atmospheric jams that have the aural density of a sound-collage, combined with the pulse that only a superb band playing in real time can create.

Welcome to the web site of Christine Sullivan, one of Australia's leading performers and vocalists. Christine is one of the most gifted, accomplished, versatile, unique and popular vocalists in the Australian music industry. She has made five acclaimed recordings, performed at major jazz venues and festivals around Australia and has performed internationally. Christine spends her time between Australia and Brooklyn, NY  living, writing, recording and teaching.
