MY FRIEND CHRISTOPHER
With a commitment to roots music and thoughtful songcraft, My Friend Christopher is a Canadian performer of original songs that explore the joys and challenges of family life from diverse perspectives – parent and kid, cat and dog. New Orleans piano and horns, and acoustic guitar rags with tuba set up the stories My Friend Christopher sings about, to, and with his family in his friendliest dad voice.
His debut album and hit single Get Dressed! have made their way into homes, radio stations and many Tiktok videos worldwide. Arrangements which pay tribute to early blues and jazz artists and lyrics that encourage children while acknowledging parents aren’t perfect are what set My Friend Christopher’s songs apart.
His second album Tuba Blues follows the musical roots of blues and jazz down deep. Featured as a High-Five Album of the week by Kinderling Kids Radio, songs like Things to do Today and Shoe Pile deliver the dad perspective on kid foibles while Under the Sea, Up on the Moon and Keep Looking Up invite imagination through poetic lyrics and eclectic arrangements of tuba, trombone, piano and ukulele with fingerstyle guitar always at the centre. With Tuba Blues My Friend Christopher continues to share savvy roots music and thoughtful songwriting for families looking to laugh together or take an imaginary journey with a vintage soundtrack.
“My Friend Christopher’s music is what independent family music is all about – it’s catchy, quirky and fun. It’s also totally relatable. Christopher’s humorous observations about family life are set to joyously delightful tunes, making his music a true pleasure to listen to.”
