Chris Rosser's 1997 debut solo recording, 'Archaeology' won the favor of fans, critics, and dj's, landing in the Top 30 of the 'Gavin Report' and 'Crossroads' charts. It was also selected as one of the top independent albums of the year by Christine Lavin, the Internet FolkVote '97, 'The Performing Songwriter' and more. Guest appearances by David Wilcox, Christine Kane, Nance Pettit, The Nudes, Billy Jonas and more. Hailing from the mountains of Asheville, NC, Chris Rosser is the winner of the 2000 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival songwriter contest and has showcased at the Kerrville Folk Fest and the Falcon Ridge Folk Fest. In addition to playing guitar (in some very strange tunings!), he plays jazz piano and has studied Hindustani classical music with world-renowned Indian musician, Ali Akbar Khan. He is perhaps best known as a songwriter however - Dirty Linen described his songs as 'lovely homages to the experience of being alive and human.' 'Archaeology sounds like the work of a seasoned pro...a wonderful debut from an artist with a heart of gold.' Neil Fagan, The Performing Songwriter 'This guy's brand new. Be the first on your block. A beautiful debut.' Christine Lavin 'Chris' songs are good medicine. Kind and heartfelt and beautifully written.' David Wilcox.
