Christien Summers is a vision, or rather an apparition, that spanned a
vast northern-scape of mountains, lakes, lands and time zones where
Carol Lui and Gareth Jones got together in the metropolis of Toronto.
The duo first appeared in 2008 on The Cansecos LP JUICES! track
“Nothing New To You”, a collaboration that inspired a fierce musical
bond between the two.
Jones – a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer fuses his
autodidactic, sometimes rogue approach with Lui’s classical music
training. Christien Summers’ self-titled debut stems from electronic
sounds, that merged with Lui’s stage persona of cool sexuality,
streetwise style and dizzying vocal glamour, give a dramatic yet
dreamy pop experience all at once familiar and strikingly modern.
