Chris walked out of the cornfields of north central Illinois and into the world of both Blues and Instrumental music as a young boy. Weekends at the local roller rink led him to the guitar playing of the three ‘Kings’ of Blues - BB, Freddie and Albert. Next up Booker T and the MG's and Lonnie Mack.
Chris spent years learning the signature licks of the three 'Kings' as well as Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton & more as Chris plays a smooth, improvisational style of Guitar coupled with a passionate performance.
Chris co-founded the successful Los Angels-based Blues-Rock trio, LIAR’S DICE. He co-wrote, played the guitars and sang on the self-titled album. The album contained the original song “Don’t Change the Answer” which climbed to #2 on KSYM-FM in San Antonio, Texas. The song also reached #4 on WWVU-FM in Charleston, West Virginia. Two other songs on the album, a blues-rock cover of the Ides of March “Vehicle” and original song “Like-A-Roller” both climbed to #5 on WERG-FM in Erie, Pennsylvania.
People sometimes ask why I play musical instruments and sing, Music is the expression of inner feelings. I particularly enjoy playing acoustic as there is nowhere to hide. I can't duck behind volume, distortion, or effects. Plain, pure & simple musical expression.
