Broadway award-winning star and concert star Christine Andreas will release her newest album Christine Andreas Piaf-No Regrets on PS Classics on November 9th , 2018. Christine is currently touring the U.S. and abroad with her much-acclaimed one-woman show Piaf, No Regrets. This new CD was recorded in London this past summer with a 36- piece orchestra, conducted and orchestrated by Larry Blank and produced by Martin Silvestri. Singing both in English and in French, Andreas draws from her one-woman show, where she was lauded by The New York Times…” Andreas’s ravishing voice with its rapid vibrato, metallic edge…(and) snapping emotional electricity, has made her a potent interpreter of Piaf.”
“Edith Piaf is one persistent life force…and not knowing where that force is currently residing, I am stating here and now…Piaf is haunting or downright stalking me!” Andreas went on to say, “I think she wanted her record to be set straight. Piaf did her own PR, she promoted a lot of ‘fake news”. I tell a truer, more humanizing story. She was a great soul. Yes, she had a crazy life, but she lived the life she wanted, fueled by her boundless joie de vivre. Her credo, the most important thing in life is a resilient heart. The people who knew her, her closest friends, spoke of her warmth, her continual laughter, her generosity and capacity for friendship, how she vibrated to the music and her biggest love affair was with the audience.
The album is available now for pre-order on Amazon.com and on PS Classics website, www.psclassics.com/
