A native of the Kansas City Area, award-winning composer and saxophone artist, Chris Burnett began his prolific professional start at the age of 18 years old while performing, touring and recording with Army bands from 1974-1996. His 22-year career with noteworthy professional military music organizations provided vast legitimate educational opportunities that covered several specific areas of musical study; while simultaneously providing him the essential incomparable real world performing and touring experiences necessary for an artist to mature and develop a unique musical voice.

An active BMI Writer Affiliate, his ensemble performances and studio recordings primarily feature his original compositions and his interpretive arrangements of select works by other composers. Mr. Burnett is the 1995 5-Star Award of Merit Winner of the National Federation of Music Clubs for his original composition and arrangement for big band titled, Daedalus.

A modern thinker and early explorer of the digital music landscape, Burnett garnered more than a half million music downloads and sold CDs to fans in 38 countries via MP3.com (1999-2003) before most musicians had figured out that there were other ways than major record label contracts and brick-and-mortar retail stores to reach listeners. Since his return to Kansas City in 2001, Burnett has had the opportunity to perform along side or work with many eminent musicians and is featured each month at The Drum Room in Kansas City and has opened for jazz trumpet legend, Maynard Ferguson. With several new CD projects scheduled to be recorded and released, he already has a successful commercial album (Time Flies) distributed worldwide on the Artists Recording Collective label brand.

Artist outreach and community service as a professional musician have been important elements from the start of Mr. Burnett's professional music career. This attitude is based upon his own experiences of having the benefit of learning from great music educators, as well as, having the benefit of numerous professional performing artists as mentors throughout the various stages of his active career. In addition to his professional performance activities, Mr. Burnett remains involved in the development of student musicians as an IAJE artist/clinician (remaining an active member since 1985 until the organization ceased operation in 2008); through his own private teaching practice; and the conduct of affordable music clinics at local schools in the Kansas City area.

Mr. Burnett served as a staff writer/arranger for many noteworthy military band assignments. He later arranged music for Fandeen Publishing Company, Inc., while serving as a participating Board Member of Alaadeen Enterprises, Inc. where he volunteered his time and services over a 5-year period from 2002-2007, both are corporations based in Kansas City USA. Mr. Burnett was later invited to become a part of the artsONE Artists Council. The Artists Council of artsONE is comprised of well known and respected local Kansas City Jazz and Blues artists. In December 2007, Chris Burnett, along with New York-based artists, Erica Lindsay and Sumi Tonooka, co-founded Artists Recording Collective - an American label brand that serves as a dynamic and multi-dimensional platform to present the works and services of a select roster of artists. Subsequently, Artists Recording Collective formally launched its first commercial CD recording release in early 2008 to critical acclaim and National Radio success. Most recently, he was personally invitd by Mr. Leon A. Brady to become involved with the Kansas City Youth Jazz, Inc.

Today, Mr. Burnett operates BurnettMusic.com (his official artist website domain name and sole proprietorship business entity), and now primarily focuses his efforts on continued success in the areas of performing, writing, producing and teaching music while also contributing to other vital areas of the industry.

Mr. Burnett’s Professional Memberships include: American Federation of Musicians (Kansas City Local 34-627), The Recording Academy (GRAMMY®), and the US Army Career and Alumni Program (ACAP).

"The music you play sounds so beautiful- you should be on every stage worldwide. KEEP ON."
- Tim Price, New York , Selmer Artist/Clinician
