Chris Kasper
Chris Kasper
Chris Kasper is quietly distinguishing himself from the crowd as a gifted singer/songwriter who follows neither genre nor format.
As part of the music community in Philadelphia, Kasper is regarded as a favorite by radio and fellow songwriters. A subtle showman, his songs, records and shows lift from the ground and surround. He has received some national critical acclaim from outlets such as iTunes, Ragged Magazine, ABC and has opened for Amos Lee and G. Love among others. Most recent news includes the completion of his latest recording The First Hundred Years Are The Hardest (due out 2011) produced by friend and peer Andrew Lipke. This collaboration has pushed Kasper's signature sound into further corners of the singer/ songwriter label and opened new possible directions for future efforts. While Chasing Another Sundown proved to be a meticulous production (Jeff Hiatt) with the thread of sweeping pedal steel by Adam Davis, The First Hundred... is sonically more electric and stylistically more varied. Like FlyingBoy, most of the instruments were played by Chris and Andrew with the occasional help of some key guest players including Fred Berman (Amos Lee) and Chris Giraldi (Rachel Yamagata).
