All day Friday at the BlogHer conference in Chicago I kept running into an interesting seeming woman named Christine Kane, who mentioned that she blogged about music. Christine’s eyes are penetrating; you don’t easily forget her once having met her. But I had no idea who she was. And then, on Friday night, at the BlogHer party on the rooftop of the Navy Pier, there she was, alone on a small stage with a guitar. And when she started singing, holy shit, that woman could sing. She has a gorgeous voice. Not what you expect when someone you’ve been hanging with off and on during the day picks up a guitar.
Then I remembered that there was a music CD in our shwag bag and the light bulbs in my brain finally turned on. I looked for her all the next day to thank her for the CD and for playing for our rather inattentive group, but didn’t see her anywhere. According to someone, this was a marketing experiment for her. Did it work? I have no idea. But if you are reading this and are remotely curious about Christine’s work, listen to a few bars at iTunes, and if you like it, buy it. More people should hear her. And Christine, if you are out there somewhere reading this, thank you.
