His sound echoes the work of artists such as Ryan Adams, Wilco or Neil Young, but his songs have a personal approach to storytelling, closely related to the artist’s own experience and sensibility. Chris has been a country music fan ever since he can remember. He started playing guitar when he was only 5, equipped with a lot of eagerness to play along to some of the amazing classic records his grandma would put on: Johnny Cash, George Jones, Guy Clark, and many of the original country outlaws!
Over the past decade, Chris set out to refine his skills as a guitar player, touring with a wide array of artists. His first effort as a solo performer comes in the form of a debut LP, “The Reason I Leave”. The album was recorded live, in order to capture the essence of the songs in the most authentic way possible. As the title might point out, “The Reason I Leave” is a very personal record, inspired by Chris’ journey through life - these songs are all about the coming-of-age process of losing faith, only to find it again and gain more clarity than ever before. In order to focus on creating the most unique songwriting experience and get his thoughts out to paper, Chris moved to Utah for a month during the winter of 2016, so he could solely focus on writing these songs.
Beau + Luci- Hailing from the swamplands of Southern Georgia, raised on a heady blend of rock-and-roll and blues and classic country, Beau + Luci mine their rich musical heritage to dream up an extraordinarily timeless sound. On their upcoming debut EP, the two sisters infuse their earthy yet lushly textured folk-rock with naturally immaculate harmonies that never fail to captivate. And in their songwriting, 18-year-old Beau and 21-year-old Luci reveal both a sublime sense of wonder and a graceful sophistication well beyond their years.
Produced by Dan Hannon (Manchester Orchestra, Aaron Shust), Beau + Luci’s debut EP finds the duo collaborating with a host of esteemed musicians, including guitarist Scott Sharrard and keyboardist Peter Levin (both members of the Gregg Allman Band) as well as keyboardist Rami Jaffee (best known for his work with Foo Fighters and the Wallflowers). Throughout the EP, Beau + Luci show a sharp sense of songcraft honed through their near-lifelong studying of legends like Joni Mitchell and Johnny Cash. At the same time, the two channel pure passion into each track, instilling the EP with a powerful energy. “With our songwriting, our main goal is to take what’s in our heads and hearts and express it in a way that people can connect with,” says Luci. “We want to be as honest as possible, and dig really deep with the hope that someone can listen and say, ‘Someone else is feeling the same thing I’m feeling—I’m not alone.’”
