Chris Kasper is quietly distinguishing himself from the crowd as a gifted singer/songwriter who follows neither genre nor format. He is a songster based in Philadelphia, PA. As part of the music community in his city, Kasper is regarded as a favorite by radio and fellow songwriters. A subtle showman, his songs, records and shows lift from the ground and surround. He has received some national critical acclaim from outlets such as iTunes, Ragged Magazine, ABC and has opened for Amos Lee, The Wood Brothers, and G. Love among others. Most recent news includes the completion of his latest recording "The First Hundred Years Are The Hardest" (2011) produced by friend and peer Andrew Lipke. This collaboration has pushed Kasper's signature sound into further corners of the singer/ songwriter label and opened new possible directions for future efforts. While "Chasing Another Sundown" (2009) proved to be a meticulous production (Jeff Hiatt) with the thread of sweeping pedal steel by Adam Davis, The "First Hundred..." is sonically more electric and stylistically more varied. Like "FlyingBoy" (2006), most of the instruments were played by Chris and Andrew with the occasional help of some key guest players including Fred Berman (Amos Lee) and Chris Giraldi (Rachel Yamagata).
