Christina Alessi and The Toll Collectors

I am a singer/ songwriter in Northern NJ.

My sound?? Well, my influences draw deeply from classic rock and old blues and soul. My vocal heroines range from Ella Fitzgerald and Mavis Staples to Ann Wilson and Aimee Mann. I love music that you can feel in your bones and lyrics that haunt you.

I’m what you might call a Hoboken music scene veteran. I fronted Hey Tiger since 2002, frequenting the stages of Hoboken’s iconic Maxwells, The Goldhawk and Northern Soul. My most notable performance was probably at Giant’s Stadium where we opened for Bon Jovi. Yes. That Bon Jovi.

In December 2012, I took home the Outstanding Female Solo Artist award from the Hoboken Music Awards.
