A dynamic performer with an entrancing voice, Christy Baron was raised in Pittsburgh. She has not only been singing and performing in New York City since 1984, but she is also an accomplished actress, having appeared on Broadway, television and in independent films.
"Some people," she says, "feel that you have to choose between singing and acting. I've never felt that way, only because if you're able to work in both and do good work, then why try to limit yourself?" Baron started as a cabaret singer and pianist while studying music in at Carnegie-Mellon University. When she moved to New York, she began working in piano bars but soon became sidetracked from cabaret singing by acting jobs and singing commercial jingles.
Baron has since performed with such artists as Natalie Cole, Phoebe Snow, Melba Moore, Carly Simon, Dr. John and David Sanborn.
