About

Hi there!
Christopher J

Welcome to my website. I am a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, bass (electric and upright), ukulele, keyboards, and a singer and songwriter.  I write, record and produce songs and put them on this website for people to download and hopefully share and enjoy. By day I am a small business owner. By night I pursue my love of music either composing and recording new music, learning new instruments (For example, see my Double Bass Lessons series.), playing music for nursing home audiences or participating in community music.

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest coast of the USA in the Seattle, Washington area.

My songwriting draws on my life experiences including over 20 years of being a special needs parent to a child with autism, infused with elements from other twists and turns of my journey through life.

My music covers a variety of styles and instruments from acoustic based folk, blues, & country to electric-centric pop-rock.  I have loved music for as long as I can remember.

What is on this site?

  • You can find my recordings, ringtones and/or videos to purchase and download on my Music page.
  • If you are interested in learning how to play the double bass (also known by other names such as string bass, upright bass or acoustic bass) be sure to check out my Double Bass Lessons page.
  • If you just want to read whatever random things I happen to be interested in and post about, just visit my blog on the main page.

I am also available to perform live music at your nursing home, adult family home or residential facility.   I create a lively and interactive show. The performance features a professional sound system perfect for most room sizes. As a “one man band” I have invested in creating high quality recorded background tracks. When I add my years of performing experience on guitar, ukulele, bass, and vocals people immediately begin singing along, tapping toes and dancing to the music.  Shows consist of favorite tunes everyone knows from the american treasury of music. The large variety of songs and musical styles makes these programs a unique treat. Click here for a sample song list.

On my site you will find that I give lots of music away in the hope that it will help my cause, and I would love it for you use my music to create other stuff – music videos, pictures, remixes, etc.  Go here for a list of music I have released.  If someone wants to use my music in a movie, TV, radio commercial or on Broadway, I think that would be great!!  My music sharing/use policy is here.

Notable musicians I have studied with: 
  • Larry Bridges (Vocal coach and former musical director of The New Christie Minstrels)
  • Dr. Walter Thomas (DME, Stanford University)
  • Rev. Fred Link, OFM (Founder of the Midwest Invitational Swing Choir Contest)
  • Michael Powers (Smooth jazz composer and guitarist)
  • William Maxwell (Bassist and recording engineer)
