Christine Kane is a former 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]

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]
