(March 3, 2017) – Chris Barron is best known as the lead singer of the band Spin Doctors who are still together with the original members. What you maybe didn’t know is that long before he was that goofy guy in the hat on MTV, he was a goofy kid playing solo on an acoustic guitar.
Chris is presently working on an ambitious solo record, a bitingly beautiful, loose but tight album with crisp, rich production using the best musicians and personnel in the world. From March 21 to April 21 a limited edition, colored vinyl version of the record, along with other exclusive items will be available for pre-order via a Kickstarter campaign.
Chris plays nifty chords on an old Gibson to masterfully crafted songs that are poignant yet wistful and funny, all the while singing in a manner that’s sweet and somewhat different from what you would expect if you only knew his hits, “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” and “Two Princes”.
Live, his stage patter is almost as entertaining as his singing. A powerful story teller, at once hilarious and thought provoking, Chris sets up his songs with anecdotes from a life on the road, from encountering legends like the Rolling Stones to Polar expeditions.
A founding member of a band that’s loved by millions of people the round world over, Chris’ solo shows have all the lyric poetry and singing virtuosity that Spin Doctors fans appreciate along with a range of expression and songwriting that will delight and surprise.
Chris will be performing at Daryl’s House on Thursday, March 23. To purchase tickets, CLICK HERE.
