Chris Wilcox is a singer songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Born and raised in Baltimore, MD and having lived five years in Charleston, SC, Chris’s musical influence has no boundaries. His upcoming release, “Legacy”, displays his unique sound, blending his East Coast roots with his Southern experience as an artist. This release is a reborn project for Wilcox as the songs outline a lot the last few years of his life. From the passing of his father, to leaving Charleston for Nashville, Wilcox holds nothing back in his most honest work yet.
The tracks heard "Legacy" offer Wilcox as a detailed story teller, intertwining his education in poetry with both personal and imaginative stories to produce a body of work that displays his inherent talent as a songwriter.
Chris has been back in the studio with Matt Zutell (Coast Records), along with ‘the Boys', who he’s been playing with the last couple of years. A decision to track these songs live came at the birth of the project with the intent to capture the energy Chris & the Boys have developed with their live show. The project, fittingly called ‘Chris Wilcox & the Boys,’ will be released on streaming platforms this summer, along with an East Coast tour with the whole outfit, which includes Aaron Utterback (Bass, Human Resources), Paul Chelmis (Keys, Human Resources), Matt Zutell (Drums, Human Resources), and Peter Clark (Guitar, Ohio).
