Artist Bio

Influences:   delta blues, ZZ Top, a lot of electric Chicago blues and a lot of gospel.

After almost a year of being under COVID house arrest I am really looking forward to this year's FAWM. I am hoping to clear some of the spiders our of my head and foster some serious creativity.
I got turned onto the blues over 50 years ago. I had a troubled childhood and in the blues revival in the 1960’s I made a strong lifelong connection. I play electric bass as well as a variety of cigar box guitars. There is also an unused Melodica in my life that I would like to make more use of. I also do a lot of songwriting on an almost daily basis.
I like to play slow delta blues in a spoken format.
WIDE OPEN TO COLLABORATION!!
Love to all!!

    I completely agree that old gospel songs and spirituals are such great sources for inspiration- they are so rich with visuals and meaning! Hope you enjoy the last week of FAWM... and beyond! 😀

    Thanks for your lovely comment

  • @willow1 2 weeks

    Your stuff is so cinematic! I enjoy the minimalism and storytelling. Oh, and my song about Barbara is partially fictitious.

  • @crutherford  2 weeks

    Thank you Chris for what you said about that first verse. I agree. It's the reason I decided to share it... It's all about that first verse... Would like to mine and refine the rest of it - but I don't have the patience or bandwidth during FAWM to do this... onwards!
    PS Congantulations on getting to well over 14 tunes this FAWM!!! Bravo!!!

  • @ductapeguy  3 weeks

    Yay. You have taken the plunge into recording... and you passed 14 songs. Way to go!

  • @timfatchen  4 weeks

    I refuse to collaborate until you pick up your bass and record at least one and post it! [padlocks his itchy CBG] DON'T let that stop you writing! (It's just I haven't got a lot of time this FAWM
