Album Notes
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 graduating from Rollins 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.

After returning to Florida, Chris released the album Orange Blossom Memories in 2006. 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. His song "Floridiana Hotel" was honored as one of the Top 10 New Florida Songs of 2006. He followed that up in 2007 with his songs "Native Land" and the "Ballad of Harry Morgan" both placing in the top 10. His newest Florida-themed album, Sunshine Kid, was released in March 2009. This album contains “Out on Cedar Key” which was a winner of the Will Mclean Florida Songwriting Contest.

A modern Florida Troubadour, Chris looks forward to delighting audiences with performances of his music for years to come.
