Chris Kasper




Chris Kasper is an American songwriter with a style rooted in folk, rock and blues. His music has been compared to everything from Paul Simon to Beck, and draws on inspiration from musical greats such as Bill Withers and Levon Helm. With 25 years of playing under his belt, Chris’s unique storytelling and lush arrangements, combined with his studio artistry, set him apart as a standout artist of this generation. Based in Philadelphia but a true road warrior at heart, the past 12 years have found Chris sharing the stage with the likes of Amos Lee, The Avett Brothers, Tristan Prettyman, Good Old War and The Wood Brothers. A solo performer to be reckoned with, Chris’s collaborative spirit also lends him great strength as a bandleader. He can often be found performing with Philadelphia staples Phil D’Agostino (bass), Kiley Ryan (fiddle) and Daniel “Scrappy” Bower (percussion). Chris Kasper stepped into the role of producer and arranger for his 4th album, Bagabones, released October 1, 2013. The result is an album of rare depth and true originality that stands up on its own to be recognized. Bagabones was written in a small cabin owned by Chris’s late uncle in West Hurley, NY, just outside the town of Woodstock. The energy of Woodstock danced its way into these songs, along with the calm of Byrdcliffe Mountain and a generous homage to Chris’s musical heroes. Engineered by Matt Muir of Kawari Studios and mastered by Philly soul producer Jim Salamone (Teddy Pendergrass), this record captures a sound rarely found from a self-produced, independent artist. Kelsey Butterworth of The 9:30 Club in DC warns listeners, “...make room in your heart for this record and this artist. This music hits you like a train.” Bagabones is preceded by The First Hundred Years are the Hardest (2011), Chasing Another Sundown (2009), and FlyingBoy (2006).
