Biography

Christopher Norman is a producer, songwriter, and performer based in Austin, TX.  His extensive background in techno lends a lush sense of space and a unique perspective while his keen ear for hooks gives his songs a catchy pop sensibility. The result is an unconventional mix of warm sounds and soulful vocals over landscapes spanning the organic and electronic. His debut album, process, was released in September 2014.

During his tenure as a dance producer and DJ, Christopher was developing himself as multi-faceted performer and songwriter, incorporating those elements into his productions.  'EP1', his pop-oriented debut, fused all of those passions and set the perfect tone for the rest of his material: a strong focus on songwriting, soulful vocals, and sleek and spacious production. "Wanting" from 'EP1' was named one of Ann Arbor 107.1FM's best tracks of 2011. He followed up with 'EP2' and 'EP3', which were featured by Soundcloud on their community blog.

While juggling remix duties for the likes of Katy Perry, Chrome Sparks, and Stockholm superstars Newtimers (which to date has netted more than 2 million views on YouTube), he’s produced/mixed material for Oakland-based artist Hopscotch as well as spearheading folk artist Abigail Stauffer's second album "No Contradictions".  Other notable recent work includes producing crowdsourced music projects with internet personality Ze Frank and collaborating with "The Voice" runner-up Michelle Chamuel (aka The Reverb Junkie) on their "All The Pretty People EP" in 2012.
