Chris G


Chris G has been playing and studying drums and music for nearly thirty years. Early influences included artists associated with the progressive rock genre. Bands such as Rush, Yes, and Genesis provided a wealth of inspiration. Later, as his education progressed, the electric jazz style of Chick Corea emerged as a significant factor in Chris' musical development.

Although primarily involved with the drumkit, his early experiments with tuned percussion led Chris to explore music composition. Using keyboards and sequencers, he has written several pieces in a variety of styles.Chris also enjoys songwriting in the lyrical forum, penning several hundred sets of lyrics to date.


An incurable traveling native of the East Coast, Chris was involved with original bands from an early age, and has recorded numerous demos and CDs. After studying with several university instructors, he relocated to the West Coast and enrolled in the Percussion Institute of Technology where he graduated with Honors in 1992.
For over a decade, Chris has made his musical home along the West Coast, playing with a variety of original acts from Seattle to Los Angeles. These have included the folk-rock of Somebody's Daughter, the funk-rock of Glazz House, and the techno-industrial music of Thread.Chris continues to perform in live settings with casual dates, civic functions, and select venue engagements.

One area of focus for Chris in the last several years has been to become more involved in the recording studios of regional locales.Artists such as singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile, musician extraordinaire Yogi (Shawn Farley), and even the incomparable Mike Keneally have worked with Chris to produce their finished CD recordings.Studio sessions remain a priority as the future progresses to ensure the documentation of Chris' life-long body of work.
