With over two decades of performance experience, Chris’s arsenal of instruments has taken him to all seven continents as well as coast to coast across the United States. Having graduated high school with music honors and college with degrees in music education, composition and saxophone performance, Chris’s list of woodwind proficiency includes all saxophones, flute, clarinet & bass clarinet, bassoon, and Irish tin whistle. Adding to that list a working knowledge of trumpet, piano, guitar, ukulele and accessory percussion, Chris has found his way onto the sub lists for such working artists as the Dave Matthews Tribute Band out of Atlanta, TAD Management out of Phoenix and Jessica Ryan out of Nashville.
Chris has had the pleasure of backing up renowned artists such as Judy Carmichael, Dale Kristien, Fabio Zini, and Melissa Manchester while delighting bar and dinner patrons with his featured smooth jazz solo set. Most recently, Chris has joined the Denver based band, Jesse RS. The upstart indie group released their first album in May of 2014 and has since played shows across the country as well as overseas in England.
