Singer and songwriter, Kristopher Oliver, better known as KrisO, was born May 12th 1989, in Memphis, TN. Although, he may be considered a 'new-comer', Oliver is already on his way to music superstardom with his smooth voice, amazing falsetto and boy-next-door charm. Singing since age 2, he proclaims that he was born to be an entertainer. KrisO enjoyed singing in his church choir and was inspired by such musical artists as Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Tank, Usher and Michael Jackson.
It wasn't until his first performance at age10 in his 5th grade stage play, “Music Man”, at Overton High school, where Oliver played the role of “Winthrop” and after several standing ovations, he realize he was ready to offer his voice to the masses. KrisO ushers in a new era of 90s R&B music-- "REAL MUSIC, the reason we are all here today. The music that no matter what decade you hear it, it still makes you move and groove."
KrisO's sound differs from others because he makes sure that he keeps his music real and relatable. He doesn’t fantasize his lyrics, he keeps them understandable and truthful. "I'm just a real singer, striving to bring back real R&B music." Kris sings from the soul but is also a heavy Hip Hop fan and often merges elements of it into his own sound. His ultimate goal is to be able to touch the lives of millions through his music and somewhere along the way pick up a Grammy or two!
