Biography

Ohio, USA (1992 – present)

Chris Willis is a simplification of Christopher Willis (b. 1978, Ohio, USA), a singer-songwriter and producer. Willis made his recording début singing on “Handel’s Messiah: A Soulful Celebration” (Sep 1992, Reprise) and his latest appearances are, as singer-songwriter, on David Guetta’s “One More Love” (Nov 2010, Virgin).

Make no mistake: You know and love the voice—and it belongs to Chris Willis.

At once soulful and gritty, Willis’ voice has fueled numerous dance and top 40 pop hits, including the 2007 charttopper, “Love Is Gone,” which dominated charts around the world, and “Everytime We Touch,” a Top 10 European smash earlier this year.

In a world of sound-alike dance divas, Willis is that rare male vocalist doing dance music successfully. But the man does more than sing. He’s an accomplished producer and stellar songwriter. Still, you may not necessarily know his name or face. But that is about to change. It is 2009, dance music is pop music (again!) and Willis is ready for his close-up.

You see, Willis is a featured vocalist on über-hot French DJ/producer David Guetta’s fourth album, “One Love.” (The two have been making sweet music together for nearly 10 years.) Surely, Guetta’s name rings a bell. The man, after all, is responsible for two of the summer’s biggest pop-dance hits: his own track, “When Love Takes Over” (featuring Kelly Rowland), and The Black Eyed Peas’ 1 smash “I Gotta Feeling.” Both are featured on “One Love,” as are guest turns from Ne-Yo, Akon, Estelle and other A-listers.
