Christina Grimm

No Time to Be Blue


To launch a music career as a mature female songwriter is no easy feat. And it’s this fact that makes S.B. singer/songwriter Christina Grimm’s debut full-length release a bold and uncompromising statement. Ranging from soft ‘70s-sounding love songs to blues and folk influenced tunes, No Time to Be Blue sums up Grimm’s energy and spirit as a performer and songwriter. Grimm is determined not to allow the tragedies of life bring her down, as evidenced on “The Crossroads Come,” and her sense of humor shines especially bright on songs like “The Vegetable Man.” However, the humor and sultry vibe tend to undermine the poignancy of Blue‘s more serious moments, which deal with issues of loss, drug addiction, and spiritual questioning. With plenty of passion, sex appeal, and unstoppable spirit, we surely will be hearing Grimm’s name for quite some time.
