“I learned that no one was going to give me better advice than what I instinctively knew was right."
The Artist: Chris is a singer and songwriter whose career spans almost 20 years. An award-winning vocalist before he could vote, he began his singing career as a rising CCM star in the early aughts before transitioning to the indie genre with his first original work. His music has appeared on various formats, from radio to television, and is known for bridging introspective lyrics with fresh pop stylings.
“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.”
A mixture of classical training and pop mannerisms on display in four stunning octaves. It's pure like a mountain stream, flirty with pop star sass—Broadway belting meets Britney commercialism.
