Kris Brown is a singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and music educator based in the live music capitol of the world: Austin, Texas. He has left very few musical stones unturned; In fact, he has made one of the most compelling studies of American music since Ry Cooder, from guitar with funk legend Cyril Neville to bass with TX powerhouse Charlie Robison, producing tracks for reggae superstar General Smiley and folk darling Ruthie Foster. Kris has slow cooked all of these musical experiences together into an eclectic yet cohesive style of swampy folkadelica and is currently touring behind his new release “Looking for my Zero.”

Kris’s trio, Whitey on the Moon, specializes in the quieter part of the spectrum and seeks a freer approach to accompaniment while keeping the music firmly song based, in the spirit of Van Morrison’s Astral Weeks or Joni Mitchell’s Mingus record.

Kris has a formidable discography including 6 releases as an artist as well as over 50 credits as a session player. He is a known mainstay in the Austin scene on guitar, bass, dobro, non-pedal steel, upright bass, and vocals. Kris has played several hundred gigs as a jazz guitarist and performed with Fred Hersch, Frank Lowe, and Trombone Shorty. As a soul/funk guitarist he has worked in groups with Reggie Calloway (Midnight Star), Cyril Neville (Meters, Neville Brothers), and Tiger “Don Juan” Martin (James Brown). In the realm of country music, Kris spent 4 years touring the country playing Tele and Dobro with Shelley King upon first relocating to Austin 12 years ago, and more recently spent a year playing bass with [former Dixie Chic spouse] Charlie Robison. Kris is endorsed by RKS Guitars.
