“I learned that no one was going to give me better advice than what I instinctively knew was right."
The Artist: Chris Eberlein is a singer and songwriter whose glittering voice and songs have been heard by millions through radio, TV features and live performances. A veteran of the festival and competition circuit by the time he reached his teens, he was originally pitched as a rising CCM star before he transitioned into the indie pop genre while attending Berklee College of Music. His songs have been heard on MTV, NPR and Sirius/XM Radio.
“Everybody has a right to like what they like, but I didn’t truly discover who I was until I was forced to create it for myself. I didn’t find out what my voice could really do until I experimented on my own. I didn’t know I had this music inside me until I was left to my own devices. Everything I am today, musically, really is because I followed the beat of my own drum.”
It’s a fluid, perfectly blended mixture of classical training and pop mannerisms in four octaves. It's pure like an Idahoan mountain stream, flirty with pop star sass—Broadway belting meets Britney commercialism.
