Biography

“Nothing great happens without taking risks,” says Chris Volz. And while this comment can apply to almost anything in life, he means it in relation to his forthcoming album, “Redemption,” his first as a solo artist. As someone who has always performed in a band scenario (formerly with FLAW and the recently-disbanded Five Bolt Main), the solo thing has been a leap for him, yet one he was ready to make. And his lyrics, while always deep and introspective in the past, seem to plumb new depths here, opening Volz wide to listeners and fans. “The lyrics on this record are very personal,” he says. “I don’t sing about anything I haven’t felt or don’t mean.”

Volz embraced the opportunity to make music in a different way than he ever has before. “Personally, this record was my turn to grab the reins. This album is, with no offense meant to any of my former bandmates, the chance to do everything I’ve always wanted to do.” While past studio time with his bands may have taken considerably longer and was likely rife with a number of strong, artistic personalities coming together, sometimes clashing, sometimes making musical magic, the recording process on “Redemption” took two weeks, the fastest recording experience of Volz’s career. “I have never recorded that expediently. The musicians we worked with were extremely professional and productive. It all flowed very well and everything fell right into place.”

    Having seen AT LEAST 12 performances of his (Flaw & solo band) Chris has talent, but he's INCREDIBLY self-destructive, he drinks too much (to the point of slurring, belligerent behavior, forgetting song-lyrics, storming off-stage, missing shows entirely, physically abusing women) and needless to say his performance is sub-par, all the incidents like that happen CONSTANTLY. I have not heard anything about him in like 6 months & I wanna take the "no news is good news viewpoint" but in his case I believe it's bad news. Not sure where he went, he's no longer active on his facebook account (he was very active for awhile). He's just gone, feel bad for his band mates & the extremely talented Lance Arny & Ryan Jurhs that set him up with phenomenal music to sing over...

    i don't think that people give Chris Volz any credit because either they didn't like him in flaw or didn't like him in Five.Bolt.Main. Chris Volz should have more plays than what he has now!

    Most "accessible" (to a wide audience) album I'd say. Aside from the riff in Redemption, the bridge in Wrong and Your Own Medicine, it's a chill record with great hooks and big melodies. Should have been pushed on radio... Sometimes and Dear Life in particular.

    I personally think this is his best work, closely followed by Endangered Species.

    Came out exactly 2 years ago today... was a strong release but I knew Rockridge would do nothing with it. Should have had Sometimes on every station humanly possible and a good video to go along with it.

    Secure, Sometimes and Dear Life should have been hits
