Chris Barron is best known as the lead singer of the Grammy nominated, Rolling Stone cover, hit band, Spin Doctors. (Who are together with the original line up)
He wrote the Billboard top tens, Two Princes and Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong.
In October, 2017 he released the critically acclaimed, Angels And One-Armed Jugglers, an eleven song solo album that has received universal praise.
Chris plays nifty chords on an old Gibson to striking solo acoustic versions of beloved Spin Doctors favorites and masterfully crafted solo songs that are sometimes rocking, sometimes poignant, and wistful, and funny, all the while singing in a manner that’s sweet, powerful and somewhat different from what you might expect if you only knew his hits, “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” and “Two Princes”.
His stage patter is almost as entertaining as his deft singing and guitar work. A powerful story teller, at once hilarious and thought provoking, Chris sets up his songs with anecdotes from a life on the road, from encountering legends like the Rolling Stones to Polar expeditions.
A founding member of a band that’s loved by millions of people the round world over, Chris’ solo shows have all the lyric poetry and singing virtuosity that Spin Doctors fans appreciate along with a range of musicality, expression, and songwriting that will delight and surprise. (And he’s happy to play the hits)
