Chris Patterson, a native of Georgia, became involved in music at an early age. He attended the University of Georgia, majored in Music, and at 17, a life-long passion began. Influenced by the great guitar players of that era, using only his fingers (instead of a pick) and a coricidon bottle, he began developing his own distinctive style and technique of playing. Having played every style of music from Rock and Roll, the Blues, to Country Music, etc, and taking a little from each, Chris created his own sound. He is regarded by his musical peers as being "one of the hottest guitar players around" and his sound can be best described as "liquid fire." Over the years he has recorded in studios in Columbia, S.C., Augusta, Ga., Chattanooga, Tn., and recently Macon, Ga. He has shared the stage with a variety of great artists, such as Ronnie Hammond of the Atlanta Rhythmn Section, Dan Toller, formerly of the Allman Brothers Band, Stillwater, and Leroy Parnell. Ronnie Hammond once said; "The very best I've ever heard." In March 2001, Chris was featured in Gritz Magazine under the caption of "Bottleneckin' Blues-Macon's Chris Patterson May be The New King of Slide Guitar." He was also featured in 2002 and 2003. Chris is currently working on a project with " Roadhouse" from Greensboro, Georgia.
