Chris Brinkley recorded his first album in Nashville, TN at age 4. He began doing session work at 16, and producing at 17. At 19 Chris wrote and produced a Rock Opera, performed with a fifteen piece orchestra and a thirty voice choir. By the age of 21 he had logged over 10 years of hard touring with nightly live performances, multiple recordings, and numerous TV appearances. He was tired.
Since then he has written over 100 songs that have been recorded by various artists and appeared on over 50 records. In 2005 Singer's Universe called him one of America's top five best unknown vocalists. The Independent Music World Series ranked Chris as one of the top 25 unsigned acts in 2002. His work was featured by the Village Voice and Chuck Eddy in 2006. He has had over 15 #1 hits on the Broadjam site in 10 different genres. He has recorded, produced, written for, collaborated with and performed all over the US and in Europe and with the likes of Grandma Lee (America's Got Talent), PJ Marx, co-founder of Laney Amps, designer of the pick ups used in many Gibson guitars (Journey, Nightranger, .38 Special, RATT, Ozzy Osbourne, Enuff Z Nuff, Hank Williams Jr., Ricky Skaggs, Tommy Tutone, and Petra), Brian Popin (NSync, Chaka Khan), Justin Peters (Amy Grant), Reggie Hamm (Kenny Loggins, Maxi Priest, Clay Cross) Bruce Swedien (Michael Jackson, J-Lo), Ron Kenoly (Integrity), Ulf Christiansson, Doli Step (Amy Grant, Rascall Flatts, Owsley), Billy West (Eddie Rabbit) Casino, Kentucky Kingdom (Six Flags), and many others... oh yeah, and George Clinton is his uncle.
