Peter Cincotti, singer-songwriter-pianist and native New Yorker, began playing piano at the age of three. While in high school, he regularly performed in clubs throughout Manhattan and by the age of 18 was being called “one of the most promising singer-pianists of the next generation” by the New York Times.
As anyone who’s caught one of Christina Courtin’s live performances can attest, the New York City–based musician decisively takes over whatever space she’s occupying, her long dark hair flying behind her as she paces the stage, her voice malleable and otherworldly, an irrepressible smile on her face throughout. It’s not simply youthful bravado but a kind of rapture that possesses her—the unalloyed pleasure of singing, connecting, pouring out as much of her heart as possible in an all-too-brief set.
