He and friends formed a band in high school, and Chris has since played in and around the San Antonio area as a solo/duo acoustic vocalist, guitarist and was front man for cover bands, ALLEGED and STRING THEORY. He was a contestant in 2004 for the San Antonio ABC Affiliate, KSAT-TV’s, ‘GIMME ...THE MIKE’ talent show. He was one of 25 selected from over 600 entrants. He was also a ‘TEXAS STAR’ State Finalist on the syndicated show, ‘TEXAS COUNTRY REPORTER’ talent search in September 17, 2005 in Waxahachie, TX and has appeared on the San Antonio NBC Affiliate’s local program, THE SAN ANTONIO LIVING SHOW in October of 2005 and on the FOX Morning show in Jan 2007. Chris sang The National Anthem @ The AT&T Center for a Spurs/Lakers game in March 2009 and most recently received 3rd place in Battle for Texas competition in San Antonio performing as the only solo acoustic act among a host of very talented bands.
The release of 'Wake' in Oct 2006 marked his initial recording effort. The 10 song CD is unique in its variety of musical styles. The CLB has seen various line ups, comprised of several local musicians, but with the addition of Justin and Pete over the last year, the CLB is finally ready to go back into the studio to record the newer songs which they are already playing live; with a CD release in early 2012.
