Biography

Chapel Hill NC, United States (1978 – present)

Chris Stamey (born Christopher Charles Stamey on 6 December 1954 in Chapel Hill, North Carolina) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and record producer. After brief stints playing with Alex Chilton as well as Mitch Easter under the name Sneakers, in 1978 Stamey co-founded legendary 80s band The dB’s with Peter Holsapple.

In the early 80s Stamey recorded and released two critically-acclaimed albums with The dB’s - Stands for deciBels (1981) and Repercussion (1982) - before leaving the band to pursue a solo career.

In 1991, Stamey and Holsapple reunited (as Peter Holsapple & Chris Stamey) to record the album entitled Mavericks.

In 2004, Stamey released the album, Travels In The South, quickly followed by 2005’s A Question Of Temperature featuring the group, Yo La Tengo, as the album’s backing musicians.

In July 2009, Stamey and Holsapple released their second album as the duo Peter Holsapple & Chris Stamey. Entitled Here and Now, the album was promoted by a follow-up concert tour.

In 2012, Stamey reunited with The dB’s to complete their first new studio album in 25 years and their first in 30 years with the original 1978 lineup.
