#MUSICMONDAY feat. Chris Norwood

Dallas based musician and singer/songwriter Chris J Norwood has a couple of different personalities.  None of which may ever be considered “cool”, or “hip”, or terribly “rock & roll”, but Chris is ok with that.  By all accounts he’s just an average guy who loves his wife, works hard, and tries to stay out of trouble.

Classically trained and drawing off of influences from America’s earliest musical traditions like folk, blues and jazz, Chris creates a sound that is strangely familiar, yet uniquely his own.  He’s been compared to Elvis Costello, and profoundly shaped by the music of Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Josh Ritter, and Wilco, to name a few.  With a voice that is larger than expected, and lyrics that are poignant and honest, Chris has been captivating audiences and drawing them into an active and shared experience.
