Biography

There are no tractors, trucks or tailgates here! Growing up in St. Louis, Missouri, Chris isn’t your average country singer. Like many kids, Chris grew up listening to whatever his parents listened to but in the Bandi household these were two very different styles! Whether it was rocking out to Bruce Springsteen in his dad’s car or singing along to Garth Brooks with his mom, music always played a big part in Chris’ life. Fast forward a few years and, like most kids, Chris couldn’t stand to listen to the same music as his parents. Being from St. Louis he had to know every word to Nelly’s “Country Grammer”, he also fell in love with artists such as Usher and Fall Out Boy. His mix of pop, rock and country separates him from most other artists out there. After graduating from Ole Miss and spending a few summers traveling back and forth from Oxford to Nashville, Chris decided it was time to make the move. Initially knowing only a few people in the Music City, his drive and determination were quickly noticed throughout town.
