Chris Pureka, a Portland, Oregon-based singer-songwriter, has straddled the folk, americana, and indie rock genres over the course of their 20 year career. Their bold vulnerability in processing the intimacies of life in song has struck a chord with those listeners who crave authenticity and depth. Chris’s elegant emotionality as a vocalist and their flair as a lyricist have garnered comparisons to Chan Marshall (Cat Power), Bruce Springsteen, and Patty Griffin. Over many years of touring on both sides of the Atlantic, they have shared the stage with artists including The Lumineers, Gregory Alan Isakov, The Cowboy Junkies, Haley Heynderickx, and Ani DiFranco. Their songs have been featured on TV shows including Brothers and Sisters, Covert Affairs and Shameless, and in the Sundance featured indie film, The Royal Road. Along the way, Chris has remained truly independent, selling over 50,000 albums through their own label, Sad Rabbit Records.
