Chris LaVancher’s performance evokes a mini-movie festival in your head, complete with a full soundtrack. He writes cinematic, character driven songs – from a farm girl’s beauty-queen-moment in the 4th of July parade, to the wild cast of characters in a run-down traveling circus, to the gun-toting rube who falls victim to a young con-girl and her boyfriend Elvis.
“LaVancher writes songs that tell stories of love among the ruins. His characters may not be from the highest rungs of society, but their feelings come through loud and clear.” Darius Rips – Oliver di Place Music Blog.
“His work speaks of love and loss, of dreams and schemes, all delivered from the heart-felt place of a keen observer of the human condition.” Music in Melrose Coffeehouse.
Chris grew up in the hills of North Central Pennsylvania where he learned to observe the many wonderful characters that inhabited that little town. It was, and still is, quite a special hidden gem of place filled with a surprising number of artists, musicians, creative types and downright interesting people. Today he lives just north of Boston Massachusetts, a Mecca of sorts for folk singers and songwriters, but much of his inspiration still goes back to that little town in Pennsylvania.
