Abby Christo will launch the EP at The Vanguard tonight!
Abby Christo is celebrating the release of her highly anticipated debut EP, Slow Down Girl, with her first full band headline show live at The Vanguard, NSW. The show, which kicks off at 7pm tonight, will see Christo perform her latest single Tokyo as well as previous releases such as Kiss Me Into Monday and Body Language.
With support from duo Zac & George and a country inspired DJ set from Adam Lewis, audiences are in for a treat!
Out August 5, Christo’s debut EP contains her most authentic music yet.
“Since I first started making music and singing live, I’ve always dreamt of recording my own album or EP. And I finally made that dream come true. Little me would be so proud right now.”
Slow Down Girl is also the title of her next single, and Christo describes this track as “a note to myself to slow down. Not just when it comes to dating but also in life. There is no rush and sometimes we ruin good things by trying to speed them along.”

Christo is a Kiwi with a Nashville heart, taking country music into a contemporary realm with pop sensibilities and tender, relatable songwriting.
In 2015, Christo appeared on X-Factor New Zealand as part of duo Mae Valley, who went on to break the charts with their debut self-titled EP. Mae Valley went on to play alongside global country megastars like Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood and Kelsea Ballerini.
In 2017, Christo spent two years finding her voice as a solo artist once again. During the hiatus, she penned what would become her debut single, Kiss Me Into Monday, earning over 1.3 million streams. “My music represents the real experiences I’m navigating in my twenties: The heartbreak, highlights, and reality checks,” she says.
While the music industry came to a standstill during the pandemic, Christo spent the time steadily crafting her debut EP, set to release in 2022. Working with writers and producers from across the world, Christo went back to her DIY roots for the creative process.
She says, "I had to record vocals from my makeshift vocal booth - I stuffed the living room with pillows and blankets to block out the noise".
As well as an EP of her most authentic music yet, Christo is elevating her live show with a full live band, with tour dates across the summer. Describing herself as a "heartbroken optimist", 2022 will see many more listeners will find solace and hope in Christo's country songs.
