Chris Ising

Chris hails from Winnipeg Canada, where the winters are long and as a teenager you are either out in the bone chilling cold playing hockey or in the basement with a guitar in hand. Since the age of seven music has played an immense role in Chris’ life. It was then that his parents thought it time to sign Chris and his two brothers up for music lessons – after seeing them imitate their favorite rock stars (mainly KISS) using upside down pots for drums and card board cutout guitars. As a teenager Chris could be found playing bass and taking on vocals jamming to Van Halen, Iron Maiden, Rush and Living Color.

During his university years Chris started his walk down the song writing path. He found a new love for country music, taken in by the multitude of emotions that country music brings to life through its instrumentation and vocals.

2015 saw the release of Chris' debut CD "Serenity". The CD's first single "I'm From The Country" quickly climbed the indie charts landing in the top 10 on several independent syndicated charts, and hitting #1 on the Country Blast Radio Top 20 Countdown
