Chris Rawlins is a folk and roots influenced singer-songwriter based in Chicago, IL distinguished by vivid lyrics, rich vocals and unique finger-style guitar playing. A native of the Midwestern United States, he draws from his upbringing in scenes both urban and rural to create a surreal, yet honest and relatable world for his songs to inhabit. An equal background in jazz and american folk music is evident in his surprising melodic turns and chord phrasing. After years spent honing his craft in Chicago’s folk and singer-songwriter circles, his debut album, “Bring on the Rain” released February 8th, 2019.
“You can tell, that as a listener you are in the hands of a precise, unnerving descriptor… Listen carefully, look out for the detail, let the words soothe or screech at you, and let the music amaze you… surreal and thought-provoking.” (Americana UK)
