Chris Gardner is a native of Buffalo, New York, and currently resides in Houston, Texas. Chris has been performing his original music around Texas and New York for the last 20 years. Chris’ music deals with the human experience, loves gained, loves lost, and the triumphs as well as the tragedies of day-to-day life. He has worked with some great musicians, recording artists, and producers in various musical idioms. Chris has also had the pleasure of recording original CD projects with Patrick McGuire( Gabriel ,Diamond Rio), Mark Matejka ( Charlie Daniels, Lynryrd Skynyrd)and Mike Sack, (Goo Goo Dolls), where he recorded a demo CD for Chris with his former band, “Cultured Species.” He has been called one of Texas’ bright spots and has clearly solidified his place as an “innovative and solid songwriter” [TEXAS MUSIC NEWS] of both country and pop/rock. His first professional undertaking was in 1988 and since then he has continued recording new material and honing his craft, studying the rudiments of music and voice for two years with internationally renowned tenor David Lee Brewer, who has tutored and developed many well-known artists, including “Beyonce,” “Destiny’s Child,” Dawn Robinson, and Toni Braxton. Chris’ first recordings were included on a compilation CD set called The Project 12 x 12 Volumes 5 & 6 and his debut CD, "A Brighter Day," received airplay on college radio stations throughout Texas. In the summer of 2000, Chris was selected as one of the 10 finalists in the Texas True Value Country Music Showdown in Garland, TX. Performing an original song, “One True Love,” Chris placed third in the statewide competition. Chris has performed at various festivals, including Healthy Heart Walk in downtown Houston ’06 and ‘07, as well as the Spencefest '07 and '08 & various other venues throughout Houston. Chris’ music is available at a variety of online stores, including iTunes and Rhapsody, and all other download sites.
In the summer of 2010 recorded the song “Belong” a duet with Sarah Dash of Labelle. It is the first single off his new highly anticipated CD entitled “Nothin For Free” due out in Feb 2011. The single and the video have just been released nationwide.

“It is my hope that my music be the source the listener can draw from in life’s experiences as I have drawn on hundreds of songwriters before me, to be a soothing voice helping make sense out of life. Enjoy!”
