Four Stars for Christine Fellows

Posted on

Flip through the pages of the February issue of Spin magazine and you'll catch Winnipeg-based artist Christine Fellows. Fellows' latest release, the stunningly self-produced Nevertheless, got four stars in Josh Modell's review which said "...slyly unpredictable, rarely self-serious, and unabashedly tuneful." You can now check out Spin's February issue digitally, including Fellows' review.

The news is courtesy of intrepid Uptown Magazine editor and workshop moderator John Kendle, who mentioned it while introducing Six Shooter Records VP Helen Britton, who is currently speaking on the INDIE is IN workshop panel a few feat away. She's joined by Arts & Crafts' promotions manager David Tysowski and former Maple Music Recordings general manager Kim Cooke. (I am trying to type very quietly so as not to disturb the 30+ workshop attendees.)

Fellows has been busy composing the music for Struck, an upcoming work by Winnipeg's Contemporary Dancers artistic director Brent Lott which runs March 6-8 at the WCD Studio/Theatre. Shortly afterwards, she'll head south for a March 15 showcase at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas.

She also helped launch the new Subconscious City exhibit at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on February 14, along with husband John K. Samson, who plays in a little band called The Weakerthans.
