Chris Mess

Yo! Just in: Chris Mess will be live @ Vessel Taphouse Lynnwood, Fri. Dec.9, 2022. Lots o' new rock 'n' roll sounds, in various dimensions, comin' your way from us. Meanwhile, check out this interview I did for the PitchPerfect music blog about our 2022 EP "In Every Disaster" (excerpt + link below) ⚡️🤘🏼🎶 #musicinterview #albumrelease #seattlemusicscene #hardrockmusic #glamrock:

Q: Can you talk about your history as an artist?

A: I’m a Seattle native...the clichés are true—it has always been steeped in music. Growing up, I was obsessed with 1970’s radio playlists. Glittery pop on AM, deep cuts in hard rock, glam, and psychedelia on FM. The first vinyl album I bought was “Frampton Comes Alive”...still one of my favorites! I started playing guitar at age 10, began writing songs soon after, and started singing. Gigging in Hollywood, California late 1980’s got me a sort of honorary graduate degree in rock n’ roll (lol)! I soaked it in, watching local (at the time) artists like Gilby Clarke of Kill for Thrills (later Guns ‘n’ Roses) and Jizzy Pearl of Love/Hate (currently Quiet Riot & Love/Hate) play live, hanging out in the clubs, playing shows myself. The experiences and influences floated around my brain. Eventually I returned to Seattle, played in a few indie bands, then started Chris Mess.
