A Mobile, AL native, Chris now calls Nashville, TN home. A student of the guitar for most his life, Chris’ daily routine while growing up was practice, practice, sleep, eat, go to school, then practice some more. Playing and singing at church, writing songs at an early age, and performing in talent shows helped lay the foundation in his desire to do music professionally. After arriving at the University of Mobile, he started honing his crafts while touring and performing, which really fed his love for the road. After college, he received a phone call and was invited to go on the road and play guitar with contemporary Christian music group, Truth.
After his time with Truth, his focus turned back to the studio, writing songs, recording, and producing, which led to his first record deal with Fairtrade, as a member of CCM pop group, 33Miles. 33Miles was nominated for “Best New Artist” at the GMA Dove Awards, their song “One Life to Love” won BMI “Song of the Year”, and they’ve had numerous top 10 and top 20 radio singles. Throughout the years, 33Miles has partnered and shared the stage with artist(s) such as Amy Grant, Switchfoot, MercyMe, Chris Tomlin, Brandon Heath, Casting Crowns, Britt Nicole, Building 429, and many more.
Most days are spent in studio, writing and producing music. Among many others, Chris has written songs for 33Miles, Jaci Velasquez, Kutless, Phillips Craig & Dean, Lifeway Christian Resources, TNT Network, among others.
When rarely not working on music, Chris is either spending much needed time with his family, running, reading a good book, serving at church, or dreaming about the possibilities down the road.
“God is good. I’m a blessed man.”
