Christine Fellows

Winnipeg, Manitoba

I wasn’t born in Winnipeg. I came on a lark and I’ve decided to stay. Yes, it’s a cold and ridiculous and difficult place to live. I’ll probably live here forever for exactly those reasons. This is where I write, this is where I’ve always written, and I love the musicians and writers and artists and dancers and filmmakers and weirdos I’ve met here.

I’ve recorded five solo albums, most recently Femmes de chez nous (Six Shooter Records Canadian release date: February 1, 2011), and numerous scores for dance, television, film, spoken word, experimental video and what-have-you. Although my favorite thing to do is to write songs, I collaborate with other artists a fair bit, too — I like a good conversation every once in awhile.
