Chris Beard

Guitarist, singer and songwriter Chris Beard is the son of Rochester-area blues guitarist Joe Beard. He has been patiently paying his dues on the club circuit around the Northeast for the last 20 years. Beard, who goes by the nickname "Prince of the Blues," is one of the young lions of blues in the 1990s. He can be safely grouped with other idiom-expanding artists like Larry Garner, Tutu Jones and Michael Hill.

Beard began playing guitar at age five, inspired by all the blues talent his father had over to the house -- artists like Buddy Guy and Matt "Guitar" Murphy. He learned to play "Green Onions" as a 6-year-old, and at 15 he began playing with a local classic rhythm & blues ensemble. He continued playing in local bands and sitting in with his father's band through high school. After graduation, he began fronting his own group and writing his own songs, taking inspiration from people like Albert King and Johnny "Guitar" Watson.

Beard's debut album, Barwalkin', for the London-based JSP Records, is a 12-track showcase of style and songwriting virtuosity. Produced by Johnny Rawls, who also plays guitar on the recording, Beard is accompanied by Hammond B-3 organist Brian Charette, former Johnny Copeland Band bassist Randy Lippincott, and drummer Barry Harrison. The Nutmeg Horns, consisting of Bruce and Robert Feiner on saxophones and Jim Hunt on trumpet, add body to some songs. ~ Richard Skelly, Rovi

My sister, Lynn and I saw Chris in Chicago a few years back at Buddy Guys "Legends" It was great fun. He is very good. David Crosby, Dan Ackroy and Jim Beluchi walked in. Fun place to go. Just great fun.
masterful guitar feeling and a voice to drown all your sorrows in...

Great blues! I saw him at the Pickles Blues Festival in Lima, Ohio, first weekend of March. Great show, Great sound and he knows how to work the crowd.
nice...
Totally agreeing about the hammond organ; that's something you don't hear everyday, nor probably ever will in this day and age of bubblegum pop music. Indeed...

Chris Beard is a great blues guitarist, and he has a really tight group behind him. The Hammond B-3 is a nice touch, and his drummer is certainly no slouch. I could listen to three or four hours of this and pour a drink or two down my throat while grooving on his tunes. If I could do it, I'd probably get out on the dance floor but all my metal parts have begun to wear out.
CHRIS BEARD "Barwalkin" - Very smooth and tasteful guitar style - no unnecessary show-boating - and a nice smokey voice too - good "belly rubbin'" stuff.
