Born and raised on the East Coast of Canada, Chris was born into a musical family, passed down from his Grandfather & Grandmother who both were featured on the Bunkhouse Boys Show, to his Father who both were quite well known in their day for their talents.

At an early age of two, Chris was singing along with his Father on cassette tapes to classic country songs. Chris was always asked to sing at family functions. Although shy, it was these experiences that allowed him to become comfortable with a crowd. Chris was fifteen when his Mother took him to the local mall for a karaoke contest and sung Billy Ray Cyrus’s “Achy Breaky Heart” from the response of the crowd, he realized he wanted to pursue music.

Throughout the years, Chris has performed in the US, Mexico, and Africa while on business trips. For many years, Chris was a judge for a local singing talent show called “Star Acadie” (a French version of Canadian/American Idol) Chris’s passion for community and his drive to help those in need has always been number one. He has volunteered countless hours to help raise money by performing at benefit afternoons of music in and around his community resulting in helping raise thousands of dollars.

In 2010, through the local country radio station, won a singing contest. He was invited to perform with Canadian Country recording artist George Canyon at the local concert hall. It was a humbling experience.

Chris is proud to release his first single in 2021 entitled "Daddy, Don't Hurt Mama". The song written and performed by Chris and is near and dear to his heart.

Chris is married to his beautiful wife Janice, and have four wonderful children Natalie, Sophie, Stephanie, & Nicolas.
