Chris Mess

Chris Mess

 Seattle, Washington, USA
BandRockGlam Rock

Seattle’s premier indie, glam, rock aestheticians, prone to absurdity and vocal craziness…coming down the chimney to rock your arse straight to Hell.


The band that is Chris Mess has a sound rooted in and inspired by original era glam, indie, rock ‘n roll, and power pop aesthetics: A bit of loud Cheap Trick strut, with a smattering of absurdity and vocal craziness a la Queen, The Darkness, Ziggy-era David Bowie, The Sweet—striving to move that needle forward, not back. Chris Mess has received airplay on Seattle indie KEXP 90.3 FM. The latest Chris Mess EP released to music press acclaim, is available in all of the usual places, and is accompanied by fantastically surrealist music videos, including "Song for Zed" inspired by 1974 cult film "Zardoz".
