Album Notes
Chris Rosser's 1997 debut solo recording, "Archaeology" won the favor of fans, critics, and dj's, landing in the Top 30 of the "Gavin Report" and "Crossroads" charts. It was also selected as one of the top independent albums of the year by Christine Lavin, the Internet FolkVote '97, "The Performing Songwriter" and more. Guest appearances by David Wilcox, Christine Kane, Nance Pettit, The Nudes, Billy Jonas and more.

Hailing from the mountains of Asheville, NC, Chris Rosser is the winner of the 2000 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival songwriter contest and has showcased at the Kerrville Folk Fest and the Falcon Ridge Folk Fest. In addition to playing guitar (in some very strange tunings!), he plays jazz piano and has studied Hindustani classical music with world-renowned Indian musician, Ali Akbar Khan. He is perhaps best known as a songwriter however - Dirty Linen described his songs as "lovely homages to the experience of being alive and human."

"Archaeology sounds like the work of a seasoned pro...a wonderful debut from an artist with a heart of gold."
Neil Fagan, The Performing Songwriter

"This guy's brand new. Be the first on your block. A beautiful debut."
Christine Lavin

"Chris' songs are good medicine. Kind and heartfelt and beautifully written."
David Wilcox

Deb McNeill

Chris Rosser is an incredible song writer. The Lyrics are pure poetry.
Archaeology is a beautiful CD. The Laundromat Song is rich in layers and is pure poetry at its best. Chris has an amazing talent for painting with words. Red Harvest Moon is a wonderfully romantic song with a sweet melody. Faraway Train always leaves me in deep thought. This is a wonderful CD and I look forward to hearing more from Chris.

It is a profound delight to have the integration of the message and the music!
I heard the song In Everything performed at a Rainforest Fundraiser with Brian Swimm. Chris and Lynn sang this song and I was moved by the words and music. Our grassroots interfaith group, URI, has performed this song because it presents a simple reverence for life in a most beautiful way. The entire CD shares a personal awakening that I relate to.

Don Jackson

Bought one of his Cd's and immediately after listening to one of them bought the others!!!

Den Peterson

His mellow, sincere voice pulls you into the songs; once there, you stay
His mellow, sincere voice pulls you into the songs; once you're there, the song is like a painting
with just want to stand back in awe.

Amazing Music
I had never heard of Chris Rosser when I walked into Theater 99 here in Charleston, SC about a week and a half ago. Now I know ALL the songs on Archeology and hope to get to know Holy Fool soon. I was transfixed by the way his fingers moved on his guitar and my best friend and I actually had tears in our eyes after a couple of songs which we later found were from this CD. All the subtlty of Chris playing 10 feet from you are captured in Archeology. I still get misty every time I hear The Laundromat Song and want to get up out of my chair for Dancing Dervish. BUY THIS CD and ENJOY!
