"Country wit a Hip Hop Appeal"
My name is “Chris Bandjo” One side of me is from the true origin of the West African instrument the banjo in Country music (African American) and the other side of me is (Caucasian) which is commonly seen in Country Music".
"I think Country Music is about storytelling and so is Hip Hop, so I thought it was only be-fitting for me to express myself musically through Country - Hip Hop music to invite you, the listener on a musical journey created and produced from the Colorblind lens of a multi-cultural view and sound as we come to understand that is on how America is steadily growing culturally and socially. No matter Black or White we continually band together to share this country and even to share this world, just as we share an instrument in music the banjo that I like to call the Bandjo. So my music and name represents this quite interesting and eye opening concept reality of life".
I am a teen from the small town of Conyers GA; I have been entertaining since the age of 6. I am a former West Georgia Boys and Girls Club Teen Spokesman and Winner of the President’s Award for my services as an artist and community activist. I have written and produced my soon to be released country album entitled "F.U.N.K.Y Country",
Being a prolific songwriter; I have a sound that is also held together by the dynamics of one; being a rapper that have diligently worked to transform myself into a musician and singer. I use a strong, unique and sensual vocal style to deliver songs with a lyrical imagery style of rapping and singing that cleverly blends an identifiable stamp of my raw, rock style of banjo playing. With my versatility I deliver an unpredictable spin on the country music’s up-tempos, mid-tempos and ballads, giving them a sexy, erotic feel suggesting love and intimacy as the destination.
My style of producing music with a variety of distinctive sounds and vocal emotions, colorfully fuses together to take you on a Country- Hip Hop Ride that drops you off right in the heart of a new Country sound in a town called Smashville!!!!
Being a person of few words I make it a point to say, ''I possess the ability and gift to produced myself and would like to remain in that category of artist which is only shared by a few. My goals as an entertainer, are to write and produce music for other artist and present The Kingdom of my music to the world on stage with the kind of live energetic excitement and intensity that creates the same atmosphere that you would see and feel at a Rock Concert".
