Introducing: Christopher Carithers

Coal towns, ghost towns, old men re-telling old stories… Christopher Carithers brings an old soul’s perspective to each of his songs. Each word has been lived and earned. Real stories from real people; seasons of weakness, riddles in dreams, corner bars and fire halls, doctors, saints, and bombardiers… Christopher Carithers invokes Steinbeck & Salinger; walks us past painted porches and familiar faces; pauses beside rusting bridges. He lays us down beneath shooting stars. Chris, a rust-belt writer and self-taught guitarist, is a lifelong lover of roots rock, modal jazz and improvisational performance. A native of the coal fields of Eastern Pennsylvania, Chris brings the boom and bust of his own story into his music.

We’re beyond excited to welcome Chris to the Crotalus family, and look forward to releasing his debut full length ‘Autobiography of a Thief’ this spring!
