The title "Priceless" refers to the many blessings I have in my life and the huge gratitude I have in my heart for the people in my life, my family, my extended family and all the music angels that surround me on my journey. For I have loved you all from the depths of my being. The unsettling hard times, the uncomfortable dark times, the loss of loved ones, the things that keep me in the past, have made me fight to be in the present and too appreciate the now, for that is all we really have. The future is not promised and the past has passed. All I must do is breath in the moment, be present, be aware of the beauty in each given day. As I reflect on my life, my feelings, the path I have walked, I am grateful for everything I have learned and I find comfort, that every challenge has been successfully met and overcome. For I have embraced the Creator, the creative light of change, the Diamond Light. Thank you to the many fans and followers for allowing me to share my music with you. ~ Christina

"Its nice to know there are a few artists out there that can still deliver music that will make your jaw hit the floor while plucking your heart strings at the same time. Gaudet - she is a premier talent that makes this whole experience special. Her voice is intoxicating! After hearing her music I must say she's the quintessential vocalist/artist the world needs right now. I don't say stuff like that often!" --Music Emissions Magazine, UK ~ Michael Morrison
"Gaudet commands an advanced to elite singing and songwriting ability. The strongest aspect of the production is the soulful feel you get from Gaudet and her band. The Songs will remind you of Sara Bareilles, Missy Higgins, Lea Michele, Stevie Nicks, Bonnie Raitt, and Melissa Ferick. I kept waiting for a weak song to come - I eventually gave up on that! .. powerful and at times explosive album with amazing stories that possess incredible and impassioned highs and lows. The music will sizzle your ears into submission! Trust me when I say this stuff can't be faked! Listening to Christina Gaudet will open your eyes to the possibilities of what could be when a great artist decides to take us back to our traditional Rock n' Roll roots! --Indie Shark Music Critic ~ Ricky Farmer
"Gaudet can sing like nobody’s business. Her voice has an amazing warm and likability factor, but is powerful like Ann Wilson. Gaudet has delivered and it almost feels as if she’s on to something, well special. Gaudet is obviously experienced at performing and writing powerful music, but it’s the combination of all of the above that makes her so deadly. ..conservative and painfully simple yet brilliant in scope .. they make it look so easy. Bravo to Gaudet for being herself, going against the pop grain and releasing powerful music!" --Indie Music Artist Music Radio Network ~ Tori Lane
"A stellar performance! The fact that her vocal delivery has been compared to both the soulful croon of Annie Lennox and to the legendary wail of Janis Joplin is a testament to her impressive adaptability. Right away I can hear vocal comparables to Celine Dion, Lara Fabian, Birdy. Lana Del Ray, and Digby. Since were on the subject I can also hear traces of Erin McCarley, Idina Menzel, Anna Nalick, A Fine Frenzy and Venessa Carlton. Whether you like electronic pop, alternative rock sensibilities or a hard rock staple, rest assured Christina Gaudet is making her presence known in an otherwise commercial myriad of soulless clutter!" --Indie Artist Alliance Magazine ~ Norman Wellington
"Intelligent lyrics and heart-stopping melodies lines are at the heart of her music! Gaudet’s spin on life through her music, possesses a very accessible signature sound! Christina Gaudet is an artist worth watching!" --ROCK N' ROLL REVIEW ~ Lizzy Allen
"The music reminds me of a combination between Dokken, Heart, Bonnie Tyler, Evanescence and even Lita Ford. On the other side of the sonic spectrum I can even hear Bonnie Raitt, Janis Joplin, Susan Tedeschi, Shelby Lynne, Lucinda Williams, Allison Krauss. From start to finish, Gaudet brings the mojo. Let me go on record by saying Christina Gaudet Rocks the house!" --INDIE MUSIC DIGEST ~ Cyrus Rhodes
"She captures that classic Rock-Pop sound - like the legendary band Heart. Christina Gaudet proves she is a musical force to be reckoned with!" --VENTS MAGAZINE ~ RJ Frometa, Head Honcho, Editor in Chief
"All tracks provide an intensely exhilarating experience that can tingle the senses into submission!" --SCOPE MAGAZINE ~ Janne Zawa
"Gaudet has a rebellious rock and roll side to her music that brings to mind Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and Heart!" -- Alec Cunningham
"Gaudet sounds like Bonnie Raitt sitting in with the Meters!" --Nick DeRiso (4 out of 5 Stars)
"Gaudet rips up the script, with elements of Classic Rock and Evanescence Style!" --Wildy Haskell

We are loving this album! Priceless is powerful both through the music and the lyrics. The vocals are very rocking and so are the guitars. Christina is a shinning star: Her compositions, her vocals, her guitar, and then her Productions skills are all top notch! All the musicians in this album are amazing! We love the effects that were used throughout the album. We definitely recommend this outstanding album to all our friends.

That acoustic guitar ringing oh so clear in a brilliant contrast to the strong, searing electric guitar is truly ALL I NEED! The vocals are clear and absolutely superb. I thoroughly enjoyed the title tracks PRICELESS, LOVE IS FIRE, LOOK HERE among the others. The groove on REVOLT is out of this world with those arpeggios and another of my favorites here is FLY THE SKY. I simply love the energetic, eclectic mix with those soulful bits of emotion and feel laced in there! An album totally true to its title I must say!

A vocal powerhouse (she reminds me of Ann Wilson of Heart)! Christina really rocks with passion and her songs are so well written …she pours her emotions into every song, with tunes like Priceless and the powerful Girl Anthem to the socially conscious Revolt…she is the total package! Fantastic! https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/priceless/id1255326472
Album Review - Review By Monty Guy, Producer, Grammy Awards
"Christina Gaudet delivers a fabulous musical effort from wire to wire with her new release entitled "Priceless". Her clear and fiery vocal performance commands attention, while it evokes excitement and amazement. Like her previous album "Wild Things", Christina captivates her listeners with an intoxicating formula created with passionately explosive vocals, exciting rock music compositions, great musicianship, and captivating recording production atmosphere.
The thirteen tracks of the album "Priceless", showcase a high-octane performance from beginning to end; with only a slight downshift to an exhilarating high throttle groove in preparation for the song "A Million Years"; a wonderful ballad about a lasting love.
The album provides material for energetic dancing pleasure. "Girl Anthem" is created with an interesting arrangement and an infectious beat. "Look Here" is expected to thrill and encourage listeners to enjoy their dance experience. The song "Revolt" shows good song structure and is boosted with an earnest delivery provided by Christina's sparklingly clear voice.
Throughout this release, Christina's voice thrills, delights, and soars with mellifluous precision; as indicated by the title track "Priceless", and the song "Diamond Light".
The original music that Christina composed is infused with artistic precision and craftsmanship provided by a complement of musicians who exhibit technical aplomb and outstanding instrumental execution. Eric Johnson is an excellent drummer, who is ably supported by the remarkable Nate Stevens on bass. Effervescent guitar embellishment is provided by guests Trevor Sewell, George Varghese, and Dave Rockower. Stoking the fires of artistic excellence is John Zych on keyboards. The band provides a sterling example of tight spectacular musicianship.
Choosing a favorite song from this fresh and exciting collection is a difficult task. "Love Is Fire", and "Heart of My Heart" evoked sensations of explosive delight and ecstatic pleasure seldom experienced in a work with so many tracks of original Rock/Pop song creations. It appears that the best thing to do is to play this collection again, to enjoy the splendor of Christina's clear, soaring, and enchanting voice with its passionate and sincere delivery; while also enjoying some great supporting rock musician expertise. Christina's work effort on this new release is spectacular and "Priceless".
