If you are looking for some New Orleans and Blues Piano, I'm ready to hit them 88's for you. I have specialized in the style of Dr. John, Professor Longhair, Fats Domino, Charles Brown, Otis Spann, etc. Through the years, I've traveled to New Orleans to study my craft so that I can give your track the right essence of The Big Easy and Chicago.

Music is culture and tells a lot about who we are and where we come from. Or in some cases where we want to go.
In my case, there was no doubt when I first set foot in the streets of New Orleans at the age of 16 years old.
For the first time, I felt a deeper connection with the music. I was brought up in a home just outside of Copenhagen, where the sound of B.B King, Elvis, Muddy Waters, Fats Domino, etc., was blasting out the stereo or on the car drives. But in 2011, I got to see where it came from. I got to meet the people who live and breathe the culture that has made the music I love. From that day on, music was no longer just music. It was an identity.
I look at the path I’m on, and though I’m Danish-born, I’ve been spellbound to that magical place, deep in the South among the swamps and bayous, where alligators and conjurors meet; A place where you’ll find 2nd line parades on Sundays and red beans on Mondays. See the magical site of Mardi Gras Indians in the streets and get your fortune told by voodoo queens. It’s a place where people come together over good food, drinks, and music.
Since I started as a professional musician back in 2014, I’ve been fortunate enough to meet and play with many Danish and international musicians.

    Very easy to work with. Chris was able to lock in on the vibe of the music, and create his own space. He also great with receiving feedback.
