Up from the Underground
A native of the Space Coast of Florida, Chris grew up just miles from the NASA launchpads. He started performing steadily around Central Florida during the late 1990's and released his self-titled debut to rave reviews in the Florida press. In 2000, his song 'Bring Us Together' was used in a regional TV advert. After finishing college, Chris continued his musical journey in London for the next few years where he gigged constantly in clubs, and busked nightly in the subways of the London Underground. He was met by enthusiastic audiences while touring the UK, Ireland, and Germany, and performed live numerous times on British TV and radio, including the BBC. During this period he released the Odessa Morning EP and Up From the Underground, which received airplay all over Europe and featured top London players, such as pedal steel legend BJ Cole (Sting, Elton John, Beck). Chris is now back in Florida and has just completed his next album entitled Orange Blossom Memories. In this nostalgic ode to his home state, he includes not only songs about the Florida good life, but of the state's history as well. A modern Florida Troubadour, Chris looks forward to delighting audiences with performances of these songs for years to come.
