Christine Havrilla & Gypsy Fuzz
Christine Havrilla & Gypsy Fuzz
Award-winning Philadelphia native Christine Havrilla brings her “well-built, catchy,
smart tunes” (Upstage Magazine) to audiences everywhere, touring nationally solo and
also with the support of her band, Gypsy Fuzz. Christine utilizes the soft gritty texture of
her vocals to express warmth and honesty listeners quickly embrace as well as her
aggressive, raw, trash-style guitar playing and looping. Main Line Today Magazine
lists Christine as one the 25 “Power Women” ready to lead (October 2015). “Christine
Havrilla is a creative, talented powerhouse wrapped up in one complete package!”
exclaims Nor’easter Magazine (Aug 2015). Mike “Jacobs” McKenna of Steel Notes
Magazine reviews & says “This CD (Vol. 2- The Sunset Sessions) just defies
description. It is hot, tight, precise and just plain kicks ass. This ambitious Philly native
manifests her talent in certain ways that allows her to create eclectic music which will
grab your heart and leave a lasting memory. Her Roots/Folk/Americana background
coupled with that unique individuality that she possesses allows her to be a presence
that steps into many genres and gives her the tools to crossover to different music
formats. I give this 2 THUMBS UP!” Mark Rogers from 93.7 WSTW raves, “…with
Gypsy Fuzz (the album and the band), Christine takes especially that rock element and
turns it to 11. Gypsy Fuzz fuses fantastic guitar work with Christine’s vocals, which can
reach down inside and grab your heart. A very diverse album, showing elements of rock,
blues and even country, among others, Gypsy Fuzz continues Christine’s string of
fantastic albums. Buy it.” Named "One of the Top Ten Indie Artists" by The Advocate
Magazine, The Washington Post writes, “(Havrilla’s) songs are intelligent and moving,
the arrangements are incisive and colorful, and, best of all, Havrilla consistently comes
across as a confident and seasoned performer.” Christine has shared the stage with artists
like Brandi Carlile, Chely Wright, Jeffrey Gaines, America, Jill Sobule, Janis Ian, &
Davy Knowels to name a few. Gypsy Fuzz’s premier album titled “Searching. Finding.
Living.”, co-produced by Larry Crane (Elliott Smith, Sleater-Kinney, Cat Power), was
listed on Advocate Magazine’s not to be missed “Best Overlooked Albums of 2011!”
(Advocate -November 2011) Christine is listed with Takamine Guitar’s Worldwide
Artists, Clayton Picks, Audix Mics, was a featured Artist for American Musical
Supply’s Singer/Songwriter Month (Feb 2015, 2017), nominated for About.com's 2013
Reader's Choice Awards, awarded the 2010 Garden State Film Festival’s “Best
Contemporary Country Song” for “Blinders”, nominated for 3 “Homey Awards” (2015)
for 93.7 WSTW, and is called "...raw, simple, wonderful!" by Curve Magazine. Inessa at
101.9 KINK.FM calls Gypsy Fuzz "Yet another fun late-year discovery!" Michaela
Majoun, former DJ from 88.5 WXPN, applauds her "terrific, big sound”, while
Philadelphia Magazine states, “She rocks!” Christine is noted in the new book by Sean
Kay called “Rockin’ the Free World” (Dec 2016 Roman & Littlefield) and her current
