BIO

Chris Weaver was born to perform. Mixing a perfect blend of southern rock, soul and country blues, Chris and his band are inspiring crowds all around the world on the heels of releasing their sophomore CD, American Dreamer. Attending a Chris Weaver performance is a spiritual experience you don’t want to miss!

Born in West Virginia, Chris Weaver grew up in a music inspired house hold which helped shape his unique sound and style. Chris’ father played in bands and helped introduce Chris to influences ranging from Tom Petty and Bob Seger to John Mellencamp and Joe Cocker. Eventually he earned coveted performing slots at high profile venues and began building a loyal fan base of tourists and college kids.

In 2010 Chris released his first album, Standing in Line showcasing his vocal, writing and performing abilities. The band toured for a year around the country before releasing Standing in Line to college, Americana, AAA and country radio. The album, live performances, and radio support helped propel Chris to being named by Billboard as a “Top 10 act to follow in 2013.”

Collaborating with legendary producer, Josh Leo (Alabama, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Timothy B. Schmit, Bad Company, Lynyrd Skynyrd) for his sophomore album, AMERICAN DREAMER, Chris and his band hit new heights. The new music showcases Chris’ soulful, gritty passion in a collection of songs that define the American fabric - determination, love, family life, faith in a higher power, and the hopefulness of the American Dream. Guest performers on the record include Jack Pearson on slide guitar and Kim Carnes on back ground vocals. Weaver co-wrote all songs on the album. From the emotive album opener “Gravy Train,” soulful tracks “Raise The Dead” and “California High” to the breezy ballad “I Should Have Said That” and the Springsteen-esque “Time Has Wings”, Weaver is a lyrical craftsman who’s music is both riveting and unclassifiable.
