Christen Lien’s provocative compositions, hypnotic performance style, and entrepreneurial business approach all reflect her passion for challenging the status quo. Through her art she seeks to support her fans to process the complex and oftentimes dark emotions that oppress individual potential and hold back collective power.
Christen loves storytelling. Her new concept album, ELPIS, explores the dark side of hope. In Greek mythology, Elpis is the goddess of hope and expectation and was one of the original evils Zeus created and placed in Pandora’s Box. But to her fate, Elpis was unable to escape as planned and became forever trapped in the box. Christen’s concept album picks up the story at this juncture, where she aids Elpis’ escape and scores her journey from the lonely confines of Pandora’s Box into our contemporary world.
A mesmerizing performer, Christen has brought her act to a variety of venues and contexts, including the House of Blues, REDCAT and Zanzibar; museums such as the de Young, Legion of Honor and Detroit Institute of Art; as well as influencer events such as the White House Summit on the United State of Women, Curiosity Camp, Nexus Global, SOCAP and Summit, and has performed for His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Christen is an active citizen who stands up for her beliefs. She fought and won a first amendment lawsuit against the State of Michigan to defend artists’ freedom of expression.
