For nearly two decades in Nashville, Chris Weaver has mixed southern rock, blues, country and pop for a living on stages while writing original material with some of the city’s top writers.

Not a typical Nashville artist, his band’s sound is sometimes augmented by horns and percussion that support a soulful voice that draws from a lifetime of different influences. Weaver has written with numerous co-writers over. the years, some of whom are hit country song writers such as Harley Allen (Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson), Stephony Smith (Tim McGraw, Dixie Chicks), Matt Rogers (Justin Moore, Dustin Lynch).

He has also found success in Brazil, where he teamed up with Brazilian music stars Fernando & Sorocaba. “Sorocaba, is comparitive to Garth Brooks in Brazil,” Weaver said. Sorocaba found me while on Vacation to Nashville and brought us to Brazil to perform. He liked a song of mine called ‘California High,’ “ Weaver continued, “and it became one of the songs we did on the Brazil Live record.”

Chris has performed with John Mellencamp | Earth, Wind and Fire | Chicago | Heart | Jerrod Niemann | Love and Theft | Bret Eldredge | Black Berry Smoke | Blues Traveler | Lee Brice
