Chris Bowen was born on the East Coast of the U.S. and grew up in a proud military household. His father gave him his first guitar at age 14 and his journey into the world of music began.
As a well rounded musician and singer songwriter, Chris cites Scott Weiland, Sammy Hagar and Gordon Lightfoot as his main musical influences and his own style draws similarity to Gavin DeGraw, Jason Mraz and Ed Sheeran.
In his first professional rock band named Greedy FLY, Chris performed as lead guitarist and backing vocalist whilst continuing to write. It was this songwriting skill that gained him a management contract with Gabe Vigorito (DeLite Records/Polygram) and a recording contract with Sonalyst Studios in Southeastern Connecticut.
Chris has performed for large audiences at college venues and city clubs. These have included the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, Mass Maritime Academy, CBGB's, Lion's Den, The Met, The Webster Theater and Toad's Place. His songs have also had air time on commercial and independent radio in the Northeast including WHUS, WQGN, WCNI and WCCC.
In 2016, his single, "PICTURE," received GRAMMY ballot recognition for SONG OF THE YEAR, RECORD OF THE YEAR, and BEST ROCK SONG.
He most recently performed a concert and sang the National Anthem at the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary National Conference.
Chris is currently in the studio working on his first album titled, "Kings and Queens," supported by local independent record label Brewhouse Records and production house Aberrant Publishing.
