Christine Kane is an American folk singer-songwriter and acoustic guitarist based in Asheville, North Carolina. Her song "Right Outta Nowhere" (written with Steve Seskin) was covered by Kathy Mattea.

She was born and raised in Fairfax, Northern Virginia, near Washington, DC. She graduated from Boston College, which is also the alma mater of singer-songwriter Ellis Paul, for whom she has opened.

Like many other singer-songwriters, Kane performed mostly at small clubs in intimate settings, where she sometimes interacted with fans after performances. She founded Firepink Music (Firepink Inc., formerly Big Fat) as her own record label and booking agent.[1]


After 15 years, Kane shifted her focus away from music to become a business coach and mentor to other creative and entrepreneurial types. She teaches marketing and business strategies, as well as transformational techniques to shift mindsets and wealth.

Kane also appears frequently as a keynote speaker on women's issues, creativity, and business[2] and as teacher at conferences and festivals. She taught at the Swannanoa Gathering, and during summer 2003 at both the Song School (Rocky Mountain Folks Festival) and at Americana Song School (Sisters Folk Festival).[3]

On May 2, 2008, Kane opened the Successful and Outstanding Bloggers 08 (SOBCon) conference in Chicago, as she did the year before.
