One of the best kept secrets in the music business is singer/songwriter Chris Himel. For Over 12 years Chris has been writing and playing the local scene in southern Louisiana. In February, 2003, he released his first album, "One For Me".
Chris was born and raised in Lafayette, Louisiana. Growing up there, he was introduced to a variety of music and culture. From country to classic rock, from cajun and zydeco to rhythm and blues. These styles can be heard in his music. Some of his influences include: Conway Twitty, Merle Haggard, Elvis Presley, Tim McGraw, Keith Whitley, Garth Brooks, and The Eagles.
Chris always showed interest in music, and at the age of 21 he decided to pursue it. He showed interest in the piano, so he bought a $79 keyboard and started teaching himself. He also had friends that played in local bands, that helped him learn. Not long after he started learning how to play music, his creative side became involved in music. He started experimenting with writing his own music. Along the way, he picked up on guitar. Since then, he's written and co-written over 100 songs.
He has formed a new group called,"Outbound" and are taking the show on the road. In 2007, He released his 2nd album called, "The Other Half".
