Carol Christensen's first gig (unpaid) was at the age of 5, when she stood atop a piano and sang in a bar in Seabright, NJ. She has participated in a wide range of musical ventures of varying quality, including choirs, rock bands, musical theater, and advertising jingles. Her day job for 35 years before retiring in 2015 was painting restoration at the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
