Fort Worth native, Christine Hand, has been performing her soulful folk-rock in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for twenty years. Now, she is releasing her first full-length studio album, The Book of the World. In follow-up to her 2011 EP, Girl on a String, her new album, The Book of the World, features sweet, bluesey vocals over vintage folk-rock instrumentation. The songs celebrate the everyday inspiration found in coffee cups and bluebonnet fields, imagining all creation as a book of revelation.
Christine lives in Dallas but calls Fort Worth home. She has a PhD in literary studies from the University of Texas at Dallas, which she earned largely by writing about the music and lyrics of Bob Dylan. When she’s not making music, she teaches university writing and literature courses, listens to old records with her husband Adam, and hangs out with her two cats, Desmond and Molly.
