Musically speaking, it is hard to label Chris Rasch acoustic guitar music. He plays his own style which touches on folk, country, rock, blues, jazz, celtic and pop.
But he definitely establishes a refreshing finger-style approach with his mix of bass, lead and rhythmical patterns with expressive percussive abilities that have a flowing character.
For the last 22 years Chris has been a multi talented full-blooded acoustic player using his skills to compose and arrange outstanding and impressive mood music that paints beautiful soundscapes. His uncountable appearances at festivals in east/west Europe and the USA , his own productions, and his work on other CD's not only as a guitarist but also as a singer/songwriter and composer have led to the development of his own non-typical style. Through his openness, interest in different cultures and other influences, he has achieved a strong stylistic creativeness that have allowed him to go new ways.
Despite having toured as front man with other projects and many bands, he never let the anonymity of a "lone Ranger" be taken from him, going back again and again to the roots on new solo paths.
Folk, country, rock, jazz, pop… Chris Rasch's music is all and none of these things."Before, I captured images with a brush. Now I use music.."
