Born and raised in the Monadnock Region, Chris began playing the bass guitar at the age of 14. After several years of lessons he joined his first cover band called Special Delivery with Nate Ratliff on drums.
A few years later the two would reunite to form the rhythm section of The April Cushman Band.
Chris grew up listening to his parents music, and quickly developed a love for Rock and Roll and Motown music. His favorite artists include The Four Tops and The Beatles, with April often telling audiences that Chris is "one of the biggest Beatles fans you will ever meet."
From Classical to Country, Chris enjoys a wide range of music. His biggest influence on the bass guitar is James Jamerson, the legendary bassist for Motown records.
Outside of music Chris' interest include riding his bike, reading, and gaming.
