While new to most, Chris is actually an experienced singer/songwriter and performer. For 20 years, he has honed his skill and distinctive voice through writing, recording and live performances. He’s shared the stage with Collective Soul, Journey, Stained, Eve 6 and many other national touring acts, and is just as at home in front of thousands as he is behind the microphone in the studio. Chris recorded and released two full albums with his former band, Nevershine, one of which spawned the release “Breathe Again,” which garnered regular rotation on Tucson radio station KFMA. Record companies and publications around the country took notice. Like many bands, however, the members went their separate ways.
Chris recorded his first solo EP in 2002 with former Kicking Harold frontman Tim Kelly at the production helm. It was another small but vital step in the process of finding his voice and focusing his musical style.
Chris has spent the majority of the past 15 years writing and recording in his home studio while focused on raising his 13-year-old son with his wife Cadre.
The last few years have brought a renewed energy and creative drive for Chris,
starting with 2016's EP “Scenes from the Way Down,” recorded with renowned producer and mixer Warren Huart (Aerosmith, The Frey, James Blunt and Augustana).
Chris’ writing conjures vivid, cinematic, songscapes whose melodic pop sensibility is enhanced by his flair for the dramatic. His deeply personal sonic palette draws listeners into an emotionally resonant landscape. Demonstrated in songs such as Darker Side of Me, Cry, Gravity and All That’s Left. Each being a deeply personal window, a cathartic exploration of love, loss, life lived and truths revealed.
Most recently, Chris completed 4 new songs with Producer Steven Lee Tracy, that will be released this fall.
