JUST A MAP—A LULLABY TO THE WORLD - Christianne's debut solo CD...
Detroit News, by Eric Henrickson
of world music get a global tour on Tisdale's debut CD, 16 tracks sung
in 14 languages from almost as many countries. Most every song is a gem.
Tisdale moves easily between languages...It's not every album that lulls
you to sleep with snippets from the Hebrew "K'riat Shema al Hamita"
or Afghanistan's "Aa Lalo Bacha Lalo," translated in the liner
notes as, "Go to sleep, my little moon, in a cradle made of gold
and pearls." ...From the Netherlands to South Africa, it's a
musical view of a world that's much gentler than our own can be.

WCGA’s Franklin in the Morning Show, by Franklin Raff
cool idea, very well executed. A lot of these lullabies are deeply
haunting - spooky even - and I have to admit the ghostly ones are my
faves. I interviewed Christianne yesterday morning on WCGA's Franklin in
the Morning Show (Jax/Savannah/Brunswick) and we played a few tracks.
Really unusual, cool stuff. Went over well.
Theater Web, by Andy Propst
one of Broadway’s Belles in Beauty and the Beast, brings a global
musicality to this new age lullaby. One finds Australian Aboriginal
music in a medley that also includes U2. Joshua Rosenblum (who wrote
Fermat’s Last Tango seen a few years back at York Theatre Company)
provides the accompaniment, with a number of instrumental sounds, on the
disc’s 15 tracks, sometimes making it welcoming to the ear, sometimes
distancing, always exotic. Tisdale’s voice, ethereal and sometimes
re-mixed and dubbed into self-duets, can comfort.
Journey, by Laurie Lawson
over the world mothers put their children to sleep.
For those children fortunate
enough, anticipation of a new day and hope for a future
await them at the end of their sleep. We seem to be having trouble
finding universality throughout the world.
Perhaps CHRISTIANNE TISDALE has the right idea with her new CD,
"Just A Map...A Lullaby To The World."
Maybe music and a desire for peace for our children is the
binding factor. In a
beautiful soprano voice, Tisdale offers up lullabies from 13 countries
in 14 different languages. Someone
must be listening because her CD became a top seller on CDBaby.com for
the week of May 19th! "Just A Map...A Lullaby To The World" is
a unique experience that broadens your respect and increases your
empathy for all of humankind.

Reviewer: Jeff Tomasevich
Although the languages change on the songs in this album, what is constant is that Christianne Tisdale sings them all exceptionally -- with nuanced and controlled intonations in her voice that bring a different life to each of them. Because all of the songs are lullabies, they are all peaceful and soothing; some, however, seem a bit melancholy, while others are inspirational. A wonderfully charming album!
