Chris Mess / Press

"Chris Mess deliver an EP that pays tribute to some of the great glam bands from yesteryear while not sounding dated...."

"Among the brightest new rock hopefuls is Chris Mess, who has a put out a self-titled CD that leans toward 70s-era glam with a hint of British glitter a la The Darkness and early Queen. The production is absolutely sparkling....13-part harmonies on “centerpiece” track “Song For Zed”....recalls the awesome splendor of 'Bohemian Rhapsody.'"

“Despite the name, this isn't holiday music for dysfunctional families but rather guitar-driven, glammy power pop from a quartet of Seattle scene veterans.”
