I have a great affinity towards music of the Caribbean – of Puerto Rico, of Cuba, of Jamaica, of the Virgin Islands – all of which take part in defining the music I play, and write.
Klein is a songwriter and singer, and plays harmonica, flute and saxophone. In his bio he says the word that best sums up the music he plays is: REAL. “I don’t sing a song unless I believe in it.”
His newest CD tells stories of Louisiana life, love, loss, and loneliness. Klein and his band mates retreated to a home on the Mississippi River in Natchez, where they recorded 14 songs in three days. Klein expresses that he feels honored to be in the company of world-class talent. “I am honored to be in that number, and am exceptionally grateful to share the stage with them.”
The Chris Klein & the Boulevards CD Release Tour, featured on Coldwell Banker’s St. Croix Calendar, describes the band as “NEWORLEANSJAZZBLUESOULFOUNQUE.” You can get a taste of Chris Klein’s music on his SoundCloud page and maybe you’ll score a CD at one of the band’s shows on St. Croix.
