Cris was at her best, and her "friends" were an amazing group of wonderfully gifted women. I loved her blend of old and new songs. And this was our first time at The Triple Door... wonderful venue! It was a great evening all around.
Quotes & Highlights
“The first time I heard Cris’ music, it was like hearing honey dripped on a cello…Cris has been a whole lot of women’s heroes — including mine.” —Bonnie Raitt
“A brilliant lyricist and composer.” —Boston Globe
Calling Seattle home these days, singer/songwriter Cris Williamson returns to the Triple Door with some new songs and some old favorites. Bringing in a few pals to help celebrate the release of her latest CD, GiftHorse, Cris and friends will also debut a sampling from her upcoming project, an album of standards from the likes of Gershwin and Porter – music that informs her vocal and compositional stylings.
Decades before indie labels were the norm, and years before women had any real access to the industry, Cris Williamson was busy changing the face of popular music. In 1975, the 28 year-old singer released the recording, The Changer And The Changed. Her music and voice quickly became the soundtrack of a movement, and was the cornerstone of what would become known as “women’s music” – music which was created, performed, and marketed specifically by women for women. Today, that recording, The Changer and the Changed, remains one of the best-selling independent releases of all time.
With 30-some albums to her credit, Cris continues to tour the acoustic circuit adding new material at each juncture. Her performance career includes three sold-out shows at Carnegie Hall and the headlining of many of the great folk festivals, including Newport, Kerrville, Moab and Vancouver .
