Montreal artist, Chris Velan, does not fit the typical singer-songwriter mold. A musician and songwriter his whole life, he studied law and passed the bar only to leave that path to travel to West Africa where he helped make a documentary film about a group of refugee musicians from Sierra Leone. He returned to release his debut solo album in 2003, thus beginning a musical exploration of his own influences that ranged from folk, pop and rock to world music and reggae. Chris’ music is born of duality. He sings of things big and small, of darkness and beauty, love and destruction, and of the struggle for personal fulfillment against the doubts that so often hold us back. A classically trained guitarist, he uses live looping to create rhythmic and melodically layered arrangements to perform his songs.[Upload Show Photos] // [Add Video] // [Upload Poster]
