Album Notes
Chris Gheran's first album Monster (2008) rocks out his Hard Folk - band style. Coup d’etat (2010) is a solo collection of unique perspectives on war, society and sweet love. The lyrics of both will touch your soul. His third album, Calgary to be released on March 25, 2011 at the Ironwood Stage & Grill, introduces banjo and resophonic guitar.

Chris played in Medicine Hat’s Tongue on Post Festival in January 2011. He also performed at the 2010 Calgary Folk Music Festival (6 performances) and hosted their 2010 Youth Songwriter Contest. Earlier this year, Chris’s opening act complemented The Wailin’ Jennys in the beautiful Knox United Church in downtown Calgary. In 2008, he opened for Jonathan Richman with a phenomenal solo set in concert at the Martha Cohen Theatre in the Calgary Centre for the Performing Arts as part of Sled Island 2008 and was asked back in 2009.

Energy 101.5 interviewed Chris as did FUEL, CJSW, JackFM, and X92.9 with on air performances. Chris won a singer/songwriter contest at Shotz Bar & Grill, was highlighted as a “Band to Watch” on FUEL, and won JackFM’s Busker contest August 2010. He was a semi-finalist in both the FUEL 90.3 Rock Star 2008 and Blind Beggar Big Rock/X92 Original Music Showcase. Chris was chosen to perform at Kelowna’s Rockanagan in 2008 and 2009.
