Growing up in a musical family, Christie has been singing all her life. She is the third of four multi-talented and musical children of jazz bassist, Carroll Dashiell, Jr. Her musical lineage is deeply rooted. Christie is a graduate of Howard University and the Manhattan School of Music. In 2016, Dashiell released her debut solo album, Time All Mine, debuting on Billboard’s Jazz Album and Contemporary Jazz Album Charts at numbers thirteen (13) and twenty-two (22), as well as JazzTimes’ Top 50 Writer’s Ballots, Critics’ Poll. In 2023, Dashiell released her long-awaited sophomore album, Journey in Black. It features seven original compositions and two arrangements that explore themes of freedom, legacy, grief and joy.
