KANUDE is the musical project of Kingsvile-born, Houston-bred, and Austin-based song maestro Chris Knudson.

This self-proclaimed Americronica is a new musical breed that brings together the best elements of Tin-Pan Alley songwriting with 1960s, 70s and 80s Southern Rock and Pop.

The KANUDE debut record features Eric Jarvis on drums (Laidlaw, Darrin Love), George Reiff on bass (Ray Wylie Hubbard, Charlie Sexton, Ian Moore), Billy Harvey on guitar (Bob Schneider, Trish Murphy, Steve Poltz), Eric “Roscoe” Ambel on guitar (The Bottle Rockets, Steve Earle), and Rick Thompson (Moses Guest) playing clav and organ. KANUDE has been performing live with The Lawmen: Craig Feazel on guitar and pedal steel, Mark Riddell on bass, and Shane Waller on drums.

Lars Goransson (Blondie, The Cardigans) mixed the record in Austin, and Dave McNair (Angelique Kidjo, Bob Schneider) mastered it in NYC.

Chris Knudson has lived and worked previously in New York, Los Angeles and Berlin, Germany, recording with producer/musicians Brad Albetta (Sean Lennon, Martha Wainwright) and Theo Mondle (Beck), under the moniker “Val Holler.”


“‘Sweet But Sour’ sounds like Bowie and Ian Hunter jamming ‘Synchronicity II’ with Frank Zappa writing the arrangement. That’s my favorite.” – Dan Workman, Producer/Sugar Hill Studios owner
