at a party in Austin
recently the host asked me,
"How do you like my entertainment?"
I turned to take a look around
was Chris! I thought it was a
James Taylor CD.

"I have known Chris for 8+ years now and he is by far
extremely talented musician and entertainer.
Chris provides a service that is
rare in this modern world we live.
It is so relaxing and fun to sit back and enjoy his
music and performance. I have admired from afar how he can
capture an audience and make them a vital part to his music.
He has a talent of remembering people and faces and
has never met a stranger.
Chris also is an
His creativity is
unique and first class.
I contracted Chris for
an art piece I wanted with some very unique guidelines. He interviewed
me for my needs and thoughts and assured me he could provide what I was
looking for in the art. There are no good words to fully describe the
masterpiece of his final product but it has
touched the hearts of everyone who has seen it

never realized the impact of a musician until our
event where I heard time after time how much joy you
inspired through your music and how special everyone felt. It
would mean the world to me for you to know just how
amazing you are and how enjoyable it was for every single guest
listening to you. We heard you compared to Cat Stevens more
than a few times!
You are simply delightful and warm and we can tell you have a
big heart and a love for music. You made our event
special and unique and you helped us communicate our love to everyone
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

The sounds of his voice, the strum of his guitar
and delivery are so captivating. I just
heard him at the Scarecrow Festival earlier today and bought both CDs (all
i need now and my red guitar) and simply, thoroughly enjoy
them. I WILL BE BUYING THE REST OF THEM NOW!
We heard you for the 1st time Friday
night at the UT club. You were PHENOMENAL! Look
forward to coming to hear you again at the Oasis this summer.

our party at the Broken Oak! We loved every song you performed and our
guests couldn’t stop talking about you! You transported many
of us back to our college days!"

We have several musicians come and play
each month…Chris is the only one that
we all can’t wait to hear again.
He plays the music that everyone
enjoys. Not the same old umpa lumpa country
stuff that others play.
If James Taylor,
John Denver and Aaron Nevelle had a son…he
would sing and play like Chris…

A human jukebox!
We hired Chris to play a 50th birthday bash.
What a hit! At first, our guest thought he was a CD
playing. And what a playing machine he
was! He played for over 4 hours and never repeated a song… nor did
he take a break! WOW!

We started with it on my Friday night Texas Music
show, Club Lone Star. The response has been so good
that we added it to our regular rotation.
It seems like just
recently the song is getting even more
response and requests.

I heard Chris sing at
a business conference and
HAD to have him at the Welcome Reception for my daughter’s wedding.
He MADE the evening!
Everyone one of our friends and family
enjoyed him, and were absolutely “blown away” by his
talent. Thank you for making my daughters wedding weekend so
believe my hears! thought I was hearing recorded music in the
lounge until the chef told me that it was someone live. I left the
restaurant area and walked into the lobby bar and couldn't believe my
eyes! There was a huge crowd, the lobby bar was
full and everyone checking-in or passing through couldn't
leave. Wow! Seattle
is known for it's live music but this Texas guy stole the show!
-Amy, The Westin - Seattle
musician friends and I just stood there listening to Chris perform all
those songs and we began to ask each other. Did
any of us know another musician, who isn’t already famous, that could
sing and play like Chris?
We couldn’t think of anyone!
thoroughly enjoyed your Christmas CD and am now enjoying
I will get the one next that has all of YOUR songs. The
sound bites tell me that I can’t wait. Thank you for the music and
have a wonderful, wonderful year.
Thank God for you and Thank you for the

I have played your
CD a million times! I love your voice.
I wish the entire world could hear you! You are wonderful. I am
almost 60, you take me back in time. Thank You!

I listen to many a singer on
the radio that couldn’t
hold a candle to Chris in the voice department…
I have worked in radio and
the music industry and
heard a lot of musicians…
Chris is the real deal.Great voice. He sings with heart and
Great blend of music! Who needs a DJ? Who needs the

Chris was born to sing.
In my opinion, he is
a steal at any price. So many “Texas
Artist” think they can sing…
Chris really can!

My wife didn’t
want to leave the restaurant so we kept drinking coffee and listen to Chris.
We heard others request songs and Chris played everyone.
He did Bob Seger better than
