Musical genius or Renaissance man? Chris Eberlein is both.
He’s a singer with an enormous four-octave range renowned for its versatility and power, a rich tenor packing prowess and pure emotion. As a songwriter, he is noted for his usage of insightful lyrics and bonafide DIY mentality. His music can be commercial or avant-garde, pure Top 40 pop or experimental. As a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music, he’s a testament to his alma mater. A true indie artist whose music career spans over 15 years and whose songs have appeared on a myriad formats, from satellite radio to cable television shows.
Songs like “These Words (Softly Spoken)” are atmospheric, layered and richly textured. Some are straightforward pop music, like fan favorite "This Thing Called Love," and full of complex piano arpeggios and interpolated melodies in the vein of Sara Bareilles or Vanessa Carlton. "Pasta" is a different kind of musical beast; trap-flavored Lily Allen-esque pop, backed by a scuzzy bass line and frenetic rhythms featuring lyrics about body shaming and eating disorder recovery. Despite his penchant for dabbling in a bevy of genres, Chris' music is often noted for the vast number of instruments (real, simulated and/or created) used to mold each number (video game sounds, handclaps, dropped utensils, the whole kitchen sink) and the incredibly inventive ways they're utilized.
His latest musical projects include a mature adult contemporary album Canals, a record of soundscapes Mood Music and an EP of social issues-driven pop music Cheektones, all available on digital music stores and streaming services worldwide.
