Make it big and strong

Vintage mug shot
Today I thought of a really good name for a guitar-and-voice acoustic album: Singin’ and Six-Stringin’. Someone should make it! Dibs not me.

Vancouver songstress Christina Maria just released an eight-song EP largely comprised of stripped-down acoustic tracks. It’s called Tide You Over, and it contains the Canadiana-steeped track “Over Canada,” which you can hear below.

She’s got a show coming up in Vancouver on Saturday (May 14) at the Biltmore.

Can’t you see she’s a lady?

I keep on falling
Is there any name that’s been mentioned in more songs that Caroline/Carolina? A quick glance through my iTunes and I can see:

The Beach Boys – “Caroline, No”
Neil Diamond – “Sweet Caroline”
Ryan Adams – “Oh My Sweet Carolina”
Tokyo Police Club – “Not Sick”
The Raconteurs – “Carolina Drama’
Lou Reed – “Caroline Says II”
Guided by Voices – “King and Caroline”
James Taylor – “Carolina in My Mind”
Two Hours Traffic – “Territory”
The Shilohs – “Carolina”

That’s a helluva mixtape right there. You can add Christina Maria‘s “Carolina” to the list. Download it below. It comes from the Vancouver-raised songstress’s recent album, Straight Line, and contains a nice plunky piano riff that comes in at the 39-second mark.

Christina Maria is playing a benefit show at the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre in Vancouver on October 14.
