ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Appearing with artist such as The Asylum Street Spanker, Steve Poltz, Billy Harvey, Amy LaVere, Rachael Davis (of Shout Sister Shout!) and others have given Chris an insight to songwriting that others have not had the privilege to enjoy.

Influences include John Prine, Guy Clark, Tom Waits, Randy Newman Steve Poltz and Bob Schneider. The the discovery of the playing styles of the old country blues players like Mississippi John Hurt, Blind Blake, Rev. Gary Davis changed Chris's approach to guitar playing. This led to discoveries of Merle Travis, Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed, Leo Kottke and others. Obsessed by the styles of fingerstyle or "fingerpickin'" guitar, combined with the songwriting styles of Tom Waits, Guy Clark, Randy Newman, Steve Poltz, Bob Schneider and others, led to develop the sound Chris has achieved.

If you like his stuff, then, "Better Be Scared!"

Dean Phelps

Great picking and songwriting
Chris demonstrates his mastery of thumb-picking guitar on this collection of mostly original numbers. His songwriting flair also shows. Chris has a boundless imagination and seems to move effortlessly from writing about falling in love (The Doo-Doo Song) to writing about murder for hire (Tell Me When).

The instrumentation is sparse on Better Be Scared. It's Chris's vocal and guitar throughout, which gives the CD the feel of a live performance. At times I find myself wanting to throw in a lead fill or vocal harmony. Although it might fill out the sound, it would take away from the live feel of the record.

Buy this CD, and you'll experience Chris's wry sense of humor, his masterful guitar playing and his poetic exploration of life's many corners, all as if he's there in the room with you.
