Crissy began her musical career at the tender age of 4 years old, when she started playing with the Colchester Salvation Army Band. She continued with the Essex and Suffolk Salvation Army Massed Band and local youth orchestras until 16 years of age.

At 17 she joined the renowned Ivy Bensons All Girls Band touring Europe and other parts of the world, playing to the Forces and doing Summer Seasons in the Isle of Man.

When she left Ivys band she went on to create her own group - "The Beat Chicks", who supported the Beatles on their first Spanish tour.

Her next move was to expand the size of her group to a 7 piece - "The Christine Lee Set", who toured Egypt and had a regular TV slot on Egyptian television.

Still very busy Crissy has been seen supporting many "named" artists and has recently been seen playing and directing the music for "The Frank Skinner Show" on UK TV.
