  • Blues and roots favorite Chickenbone Slim
  • Cornetist, poet and composer Al Basile
  • A previously unreleased live set from blues veteran Lowell Fulson
  • The fourth album from the Jon Spear Band
  • And U.S.-based South Korean blues singer, pianist, and songwriter Hanna PK

Chris is also a critic and freelance writer whose work has appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Utne, Global Rhythm, Dirty Linen, and Option, among others.
