Originally from the southside of Chicago now living and working in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. A fifteen year veteran of Top 40 bands, he's currently writing and producing his new cd as well as producing other artists. Chris plays all the instruments and sings all the vocal parts. His influences are mainly the classic songwriters he heard while growing up in the windy city. Lennon, McCartney, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Elton John, Paul Simon, Jim Croce, David Gates, Carole King, Paul Williams, Jeff Lynne, Burt Bacharach and the older guys like Porter, Gershwin, Lerner & Lowe, Irving Berlin and the amazing George Formby. One of his proudest achievements is the song "Bringing A Smile To You" which he wrote for the children's charity Operation Smile that they adopted for their 20th anniversary theme song in 2002.
