Album Notes
Chris was born and raised in Oak Cliff, Texas then later in Desoto, Texas. He played in many bands growing up teaching himself to play guitar, drums and bass by watching others. Chris hit the club scene around the age of sixteen with his home town rock bands. In his early 20’s he was head lining clubs in Dallas like Club DaDa, Trees and the Greenville Bar and Grill plus many others with his band La La Land. Chris also traveled outside of Texas with La La Land and got radio play in several markets.
Chris made a big departure from the popular bohemian style music he had been writing for 10 years to the harder side of Rock. Four well known musicians including Chris formed Dallas based band Tin Henry. With Tin Henry Chris continued to play Dallas clubs expanding his resume by hitting the stage with new friends from Sugar Ray. Tin Henry played with several national acts through their 10+ year run, also making a video which aired around the world for Blockbuster VH1 and MTV.
After Tin Henry, Chris formed Automatic with childhood friends and bike builders Jason and Joe Martin. Playing bike shows in Las Vegas, and local clubs Chris had a much more relaxed schedule. He had made the musical journey full circle back to the style that first attracted him to music.
On March 15th, 2006 Chris’ life changed. He was diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis). In terrible pain and with damage to his hands and feet, music was the last thought on his mind. With the possibility of being confined to a wheel chair and without full use of his hands, plans started to change. Chris’ guitar case didn’t open for nearly a year. Learning to use his hands different than he had been used to was both frustrating and rewarding. Chris also took small strides in walking.
Balance issues and the constant feeling of broken bones in the bottom of his feet were slowly getting better. The numbness in his fingers were his first hurdle when he did go back to his guitar.
It was like learning to play all over again by sight and with the feel. Not knowing the amount of pressure being applied to the strings made playing time limited due to the damage the strings would cause to the skin. Things improved quite a bit for Chris until he had a relapse early in 2008. After 5 months he was back to normal with minimal pain and discomfort. Putting the finishing touches on his debut solo CD is his most accomplished work as a musician. Receiving nominations for songwriter and song of the year along his journey to his solo career will be greatly overshadowed by his new solo CD. Chris is doing what he loves, making music and having fun doing it.
