audiences with his haunting tales of ghost women, lonesome clock towers, lovelorn mariners and hospital beds.

Chris’ trademark solo live sound is at times likened to the magnitude of a full orchestra to only moments

later pull audiences to the very edge of their seats to soak in the delicate spider-like touch of his fingerstyle guitar playing.
