Biography

“I describe my music as that from a person who has a lot of CDs and records and tapes of different genres of music,” says “Chris Glover,” “who goes to listen to something and doesn’t find it after going through every CD, and makes music that he wants to listen to but can’t find.”
“Chris Glover” can sing, rap and play any instrument he picks up. He writes songs, samples sounds and produces his own tracks. He’s 23 years-old and from Manhattan. His debut, Hell Isn’t Even That Funny, shrugs off ideas about genre: it’s not enough of any one thing and too much of everything. The songs bang like hip-hop beats and have melodies as pure as any pop song that’s lodged in your head for days.

On Hell Isn’t Even That Funny, that music extends from the perfect collage of “Stand On Your Seat,” with its melodic rap and soaring chorus buttressed by Temptations horns, to the unflaggingly catchy “Something You Already Knew” and the avant beats and pure pop hooks of “Pinocchio.” There’s also “Nothing’s Ever Gonna Change,” with its rapid-fire flow and achingly beautiful breakdown, the sweeping “Never So Far Away” and “Holy Moses,” which begins with Chris’s own Ladysmith Black Mambazo-inspired five-part harmony, and the delicious downer “We Don’t Care.”

“The thing that I guess makes my music a little different,” Chris says, “is that I take an idea and turn it into a different kind of song than it should be turned into. The melody of “Stand On Your Seat” could’ve been a country song, but instead I made it a beat and rapped on it. I don’t like a song to make sense within itself.”
