"Chris is one of the hardest working musicians originally from the Seattle music scene. Now living in Brooklyn-New York, you'd be hard pressed to find another musician in their 20's seamlessly switching from International Music to Jazz and from Rock to Bluegrass so comfortably. He has even studied Brazilian Jazz with Seattle based legendary Brazilian Musician, Jovino Santos Neto.
Chris’ musicianship reflects the multitude of musical influences he turns to for inspiration. His acoustic guitar playing really stands out, but this virtuosic, multi-instrumentalist is equally at home playing mandolin, drums, bass, electric guitar, banjo, and Greek bouzouki.
In February of 2017 and March of 2019, Chris as a member Dirty Kitchen played on the world famous Grand Ole Opry!
In addition, Chris was a founding member of Seattle based band Northern Departure, and has found himself performing onstage with the likes of Jerry Douglas, Emmylou Harris, Bryan Sutton, Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley, The Steep Canyon Rangers, Kenny and Amanda Smith, The Boxcars, Yogi and The Yogini's and many others." - From dirtykitchenband.com
