- Chris' latest album. A mystical, brooding, romantic, sensual violin journey, recorded with only his electric violin, a looping machine, and some cheap guitar pedals, Seven Crows is rich with layered violin fantasies, swirly bowed dreams, ostinato plucked recipes and Chris' lush garage rock string orchestration mining the emotional terrain of love, life, and adventure. A fascinating 13 song album recorded and mixed by Colin Studybaker (Iron & Wine, Califone) and Erik Colvin, and produced by Kristian Dunn (Soft Lights, El Ten Eleven).
