Christi''s passion has always been to be an entertainer. Growing up, she would spend hours at a time locked in her room writing, recording, and singing to her favorite songs. She won and competed in several county and state talent competitions.
Christi later moved to Los Angeles where she sang for songwriters, and later began co-writing with them. The first album that she wrote and recorded, had a bit more pop rock direction than the blues, country and southern rock influence she had focused on prior.
On July 31st 2000, she experienced a tragedy that would become a turning point in her life. She almost lost her little brother Ted to a traumatic Brain Injury that was caused by a car accident. The accident left him in a coma for several months, given him only a 5% chance to live. She gave up everything to be by his side with her family. She believes that Prayer, Love, Faith, and MUSIC contributed to her brother''s survival, who learned to walk and talk again. She wrote Teddy''s Song one morning when she woke up next to him while he lied still in a coma. At this point Christi knew that she had arrived at her musical crossroads.
After her active involvement with her little brother''s rehabilitation a few years later, she finally returned to Los Angeles where she was recognized as AOL''s ARTIST OF THE WEEK. Christi was then offered a spot to Showcase at the Nashville Music Conference, which hosted industry reps and wonderful talent from all around the world.
It was around this time that Christi realized her heart and her songwriting most belonged in country music. Christi put together songs that she had written as well as tunes from other accomplished writers. She began working at American Recording in Calabasas, CA., and with the collaborations of Ritchie Podolor, Bill Cooper, and all of the amazing musicians that were involved; Christi has recorded an album that she is proud of.
Christi Bauerlee has finally found her place. She feels at home with Country Music and hopes that Country Music and Country fans feel the same. With her passion of performing and songwriting, Christi wants to be able to contribute to the fun, excitement and inspiration that country music offers.
She hopes to lend her voice and her songwriting, to help support many charitable causes that she believes in, which includes Brian Injury Research, Breast Cancer Research, Animal Rescue. She wishes to eventually start an organization that will help facilitate information and Guidance for Families of Traumatic Brain Injury.
