Chris approaches music with the listener/crowd in mind. "People come to be entertained. It's not about showing your chops off, it's about giving a great performance and a great live-band experience."
"As a fellow musician friend of mine once said, music is more than notes on a page".
Chris' attention to detail makes a huge difference.
"I am a stickler about the sound. I love a rich sounding band with a great mix. I have spent several years towards trying to achieve a great drum sound - I expect the same out of my band."
Chris has extensive Studio & live experience. Genres covered include; Rock, Classic Rock, Metal, Progressive rock, Pop, Rock & Blues, Jazz, Funk, Latin.
Chris studied privately, as well at the Toronto Percussion Centre, in Toronto, ON.
Influences include; Simon Phillips, Manu Katché, Terry Bozzio, Buddy Rich, Thomas Lang, Carter Beauford, Dave Weckle, Steve Smith, Vinnie Colaiuta, Danny Carey, Neil Peart, John Bonham... and so many, many more "club" drummers that have influenced me over the years.
Many thanks to Yamaha Drums, DW Pedals, Zildjian Cymbals, Promark sticks and Roland Canada.
