Fond of music of every kind, Chris Jaxon has been asked to play in bands and gigs of almost every genre, including rock, metal, jazz, blues, funk, Latin, gospel, electronic, progressive, country, and many more. Chris entered music as a drummer when he was about nine years old. Since then, he has learned guitar, piano, ukulele, various percussion instruments, tuba, bass guitar, and upright bass. He recently graduated from University of Southern California as a Popular Music Performance major with an emphasis in bass guitar, one of four bassists to get accepted each year.
Now, Chris is focusing on his own creative path. He is establishing himself as a (primarily) pop and hip-hop songwriter and producer and is working with as many people as possible. He is also currently in the metal band That Comes Later. As far as his career as a solo artist, Chris blends all of his prior experiences as a sideman or band member and makes his own sound. His influences range from Radiohead to Lil Yachty, but his music is most easily described as a mix of hip-hop and indie. Chris has just released a new EP, “23” on Soundcloud and Bandcamp.
