"With roots planted in Central Minnesota, just on the edge of the western
prairies, Chris Laumb has drawn his music and songwriting from the
landscapes and people around him. At times pulling at the heartstrings
with songs about the embattled small town farmer and the joys of
courting a girl from the trailer park, Chris interlaces the stories, the
pain and humor of our American lives. Chris cut his teeth playing
blues-influenced rock in the bar scene of the 1990's, but looking for
more inspiring music making led to playing Americana/Roots
music with the band Cannery Row. Armed with stories from his family's
Norwegian immigrant past, Central Minnesota's bootlegging good old days,
and his father's imagery of growing up at the height of the cold war
gave Chris a canvas to paint the songs he sings. This is music of an
America many of us once knew and may still long for."
