In addition to her musical career, Christine is a dedicated singing teacher, nurturing the talents of aspiring vocalists. She finds inspiration in her family and the joys and challenges of parenthood. Last year, Christine released "You and Me" before her EP "Silhouette," followed by "All Angles" earlier this year.

In the words of Christine Tarquinio: "I wrote 'New Year's Day' at the beginning of this year, feeling like nothing had changed despite the new calendar. But as the months have gone on, I've had moments that have truly altered how I appreciate life's little things. This song reflects both the hope and the reality that new year’s bring."

LONG STORY SHORT: Christine Tarquinio's new track "New Year's Day" explores the theme of fresh beginnings associated with the holiday, reflecting on the often fleeting nature of New Year's resolutions. In the chorus, she sings, "New Year's resolutions/They’re just an illusion/For maybe a day or two/Don’t have to think it through/We’ll start again on New Year's Day," highlighting the superficiality and temporary nature of these resolutions. Through a simple arrangement that places her unique vocal stylings at the forefront, Christine delves into the universal experience of setting resolutions and the inevitable doubt that follows, pondering, "What if it won’t work out/If it all comes crumbling down." The song captures the common struggle of aspiring to change and the realization that resolutions are often just comforting theories to which we subscribe.
