Born and raised in Sacramento, California, 19 year old Christopher Fairman has been playing music since childhood. He picked up his first guitar when he was 14 and immediately wanted to start writing songs. At first Fairman wrote mostly instrumentals but soon began adding lyrics in the mix. He began to do the local open mic\'s in Sacramento and also started to play at local venues. In 2003 Fairman won the JAMMIES (Best of Sacramento High School musicians) and performed in front of 2000 people at the Mondavi Center (Davis, California). After the JAMMIES Fairman began to get some local press. It is also when he started playing with good friends David De Muri (18, Piano) and Jonathan McHenry (17, Drums). After a few informal practices the three of them knew that they had something good going on, they had great chemistry and an overall love for music. When the 2004 JAMMIES came around Fairman decided to play with De Muri and McHenry going by the name Fairman & Friends. The 2004 JAMMIES was only Fairman & Friends 3rd gig together, playing in front of 1500 people to the sold out Crest Theatre (Sacramento, Ca). Fairman & Friends were received very well and won the 2004 JAMMIES. After the JAMMIES took place Fairman began recording with mentor and Sacramento legend David Houston. After 7 months Fairman & Friends had a CD made. On Sept. 15th, 2004, Fairman & Friends performed to a sold out crowd at the Studio Theatre to celebrate the release of Their first CD, \'Patiently Waiting.\' The CD has been doing well and has even had some air play on local radio.
