TESTIMONIALS

"Chris' songwriting talents and folk background have landed him in the spotlight of a number of North Bay venues. His first self-produced CD of original tunes features his clear and genuine vocals and solid guitar playing. A crowd favorite, Chris' songs are always big on heart and meaning, and he's always good for some tunes that'll tweak your funny bones."


-- Larry Potts, award-winning singer-songwriter

"I met Chris on Cape Cod when he was traveling around America in his early 20s. He was then, as he is now, composed of three elements: a dry sense of humor, a sense of Swedish rectitude and an absolute passion for music. I always figured music was his real mistress, no matter whom he was with at the time."


-- Pete Ferry, writer, artist, philosopher (1932-1999)

"Chris and I were friends for a long time before I heard his music. When I listened to 'Salvation Train,' I was very impressed and suggested I write a horn part for it. When I heard his other songs, I encouraged him to make a full-blown CD of his songs and it became a fun musical partnership. His songs have an Americana feel. Some are light, fun and buoyant and others impart a poignant message."


-- Peter Welker, trumpet player, bandleader, arranger
