"Sonification Reviews"

Chris Reddy has been a fixture on the area music scene for years, fronting the rock band Transit. The singer and guitarist recently released a true solo project, " Sonification". Reddy wrote, played and produced the record in his Digital Kitchen Studio.
"Sonification" highlights Reddy's many talents, as he turned in strong performances of songs with vivid lyrics and imaginative, genre leaping arrangements. And, at times, he blends genres. "Corporate Guy," for example, reads like a contemporary folk music lament about greed, yet comes across with a big fully produced sound. The lovely " Over and Over" exposes Reddy's inner Beatle. "Devil's Acre Half "makes a nod towards Pink Floyd. Reddy covered a lot of ground on "Sonification" and covered it convincingly.

Having played lead guitar with the progressive rock band Transit since 1977, Chris Reddy broke out on his own in the late 90's with a series of solo recordings which received excellent reviews. Info Junkie delivered an assortment of instrumental songs with Reddy playing every instrument. The result was a mix of music which in some instances was compared to old late 70's Jeff Beck to modern day Chemical Bros type material. The CD Sonification delivered a more vocal solo effort with 16 songs ranging from Todd Rundgren influenced pop to more intricate instrumental and rock influenced songs. The album Drinking Songs for the Working Stiff showcased the humor and love for modern day alternative with heavy influences coming from British bands XTC, The The, and even a punk flare on the cover All for me Grog. The difference in seeing Chris Reddy live is his ability to loop on the fly and create incredible acoustical soundscapes involving multiple guitar parts and vocals. A big influence has been Keller Williams and Adrian Legg. Chris's guitar playing and songwriting have been recognized for years in the central Ma area and he has opened for Dave Mason, Gary Hoey, Johnny A among others. Chris also continues to play lead guitar for Transit and a side fusion band called Sonic Sway. Always a guitarist first, Chris is comfortable playing all styles from blues to bluegrass, jazz fusion to rockabilly.
