I'm really excited about all of the things that I have going on right now. I have a couple of music projects in different stages and they are very different from each other. I've mentioned Hotel Gypsy and we are taking a break from recording for a while. During this break from recording with HG
I have teamed up with a friend in New York for something very special and I'm sure everyone will be shocked when it is completed.
I've also been enjoying writing my blog and the response that I have been getting. I also tied a Facebook group into the blog for fellow msers.
This is a exciting time and I am proud to have you guys be a part of this journey.
Don't forget to subscribe to the blog or website for updates.
Much love and peace,
Hotel Gypsy is a new music project that Chris has wanted to do for quite some time. It is the most basic concept of a band that you could imagine. One guitar and a singer. Chris has been recording guitar tracks with two very special guitars to him. A Hofner limited edition with a Bigsby tremelo and a Fender Telecaster both dropped down in a super low alternate tuning. Using a Marshall special edition cabinet and head creating a low raw powerful sound. No Bass guitar seemed necessary after hearing the guitar tracks. Melissa Ralston Baker is handling the vocal duties for the project with raw emotionally charged singing. Chris has several musical influences , too many to name. This project however is heavily influenced by The Kills and the Dead Weather. Jamie Hince was a major influence on Chris's guitar playing. Developing this new style was a necessity due to damage to Chris's hands from MS. Hince inspired new ways to approach the guitar and develop the sound Chris landed on for this project. Hotel Gypsy is expecting to release a CD in 2019.
