Chris currently performs throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania solo acoustic and, on occasion, electric with a backing band. He released his debut album “Yours in Rock,” in October 2008, followed by “Dissonance Meets Harmony” in October 2012, and then his third release, the “Nervous No More” E.P. in April 2014. The single “Like Ian Hunter” was released April 2017. A live album (“Live at Duffy’s”) and a demos and outtakes collection (“Rarities and Casualties”) were released September 2017. Chris’ latest release is the 2018 E.P “Another Last Stand.” Chris has been featured on local television and radio stations throughout the northeast.
