Musical genius or Renaissance man? Chris Eberlein is both.
He’s a singer with a four-octave range that’s renowned for its versatility and power. As a songwriter, his insightful, witty lyrics and DIY talents incorporating banal household items into instruments smack of Imogen Heap. His music can be commercial or avant-garde, but it always sounds like his own. He’s a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music with dual degrees in Music Business and Performance. He’s an indie artist whose music career spans ten years and has appeared on everything from satellite radio to cable television shows.
Songs like “These Words (Softly Spoken)” are atmospheric, multi-layered and textured, invoking movie dream sequences with poignant elegance. Others, like the cheeky “Box of Tissues,” are intentionally simple, but made complicated by the sheer number of instruments (real, simulated and created) utilized to make the track (pitched video game sounds, handclaps, dropped utensils).
