His two older brothers also influenced his taste in rock with the variety of record albums they would play as Chris grew up. Chris' style was influenced by great British and American guitarists such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Paige, Duane Allman, Dickey Betts, and Jimi Hendrix. Chris has played in bands extesively throughout his life, regulary playing in his church's praise band as well. Chris' soulful and melodic style of playing add a unique flavor to Blackwater Station's sound.
