Anna Christie first appeared in the these pages back in 2006, when she was among the frequent street performers in Suburban Station.

At the time, she was simply commenting on the art of playing for tips. But since then she’s surfaced on WXPN and at New York’s CMJ music festival, strumming and singing with her two sisters Cassandra and Beatrice in their aptly named band, the Sisters 3.

Now 24, Anna Christie — yes, her parents named her after the Eugene O’Neil play — already has a full-length album under her belt. “Star Spangled” was released on the tiny Canadian label Vibewrangler and features 13 of Christie’s songs.


“Since then my sisters and I started writing songs together, which is pretty awesome,” she says. “My older sister is a classically trained pianist, so sometimes she’ll compose something on the piano, and my younger sister has a natural ear. But we’re all just singers, I guess.”
