The Whiplash Curve
Kristia Di Gregorio
The Whiplash Curve is a lush and cinematic recording filled with swelling strings and gypsy influences. Kristia Di Gregorio takes us on an escapist journey through the Belle Époque and introduces us to unruly women of the turn of the 20th century... stealing pearls, dancing on tables and loosening the corset strings.
Under the immaculate attention of Grammy-nominated producer Joby Baker (Cowboy Junkies, Alex Cuba) the arrangements on The Whiplash Curve create a lush and evocative setting for stories of artists, soldiers, kept women and merchant sailors. Kristia is joined by a stellar cast of musicians such as Richard Moody, Adrian Dolan (The Bills), Quinn Bachand, von Loewen and Tony Di Gregorio.
