Christine Renner was in the studio for Local Licks on Tuesday. Her new EP Heartbreaker comes out Saturday, and she’ll be celebrating the release of it Saturday with a show at Empire–it’s also her 22nd birthday that day!
Christine Renner – “Sweet” She made the backdrop for this video herself–she said she wanted it to look like backstage at a Joan Jett show in 1981. I think she succeeded!
We also played the title track from her EP, “Heartbreaker”
