Biography

(1986 – 2006)

There are two artists with the same name.

1. Chris Nelson from Lebanon, Pennsylvania (USA) plays a unique blend of folk, rock, and blues with a little psychedelia mixed in for good measure. (and flavor)

2. Chris Nelson names his albums with curious titles like “Lets Talk About Something Else” and “Well of Good Hope”

1. Chris Nelson is a // musician from Lebanon, Pennsylvania (USA) who has been playing music for over 25 years and has written a large volume of songs, mostly under the name of his former band, Fishkill, although on most of the recordings, he played all the instruments from 1986 to 2004. Some of the songs have even reached high chart positions on a variety of Internet radio stations. He released a total of four discs under this name.

In 2004, he turned the recording project into a live band and began playing music throughout the central Pennsylvania area. The band even participated in the 2005 Bodog Battle of the Bands in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (USA) where they made an impression on the crowd as something a little out of the ordinary. The band, however, only recorded six songs, three of which are live performances. Poor audience turnout and the loss of their first drummer altered the creative chemistry of the band and ultimately, they parted ways.

After the band broke up in 2006, Nelson began compiling songs that would be used to re-launch himself as a solo musician. This time, he started leaning toward a more folk-like sound, while keeping the spirit of rock and roll intact. What followed was a new sound known as “Dark Folk”.
