Mock Crest Tavern Welcomes Christopher Wilson on Thursday, March 20th, at 8:30 p.m. If you enjoy R.E.M., Coldplay, Tears for Fears, Jeff Buckley or Peter Gabriel you’re sure to enjoy Christopher’s music.
Wilson self-released his debut CD “East Mall Daze” in 2001. It’s continued to grow in popularity and widely distributed throughout the United States.
After releasing a video from the CD it grew in popularity and became featured next to a major label artist. His success continued and the song landed on the top ten list of most requested songs at Indie 104 in Los Angeles and he won the Semi Finalist placement.
He then released his follow-up CD “Read On” in 2007 and it served as the soundtrack to the Jeff Faulkinbury independent film of the same name!
Indie-Music.com describes him as “a troubadour from olden times who’s just visiting this era.”
But his great reviews don’t stop there. This singer/songwriter has earned many notice for his dynamic brand of folk, acoustic rock, and alternative pop-rock songs:
“Triumphantly upbeat pop poetry reminiscent of R.E.M.” -Outvoice.net; “Impressive peaceful tunes, an enjoyable sensation.”-Skylight Webzine; “Thought-provoking lyrics reinforced by strong, emotional vocals.”-Outsmart magazine
Christopher will perform a solo acoustic act at Mock Crest Tavern, his first performance in Portland, Oregon! And, don’t forget there is no cover charge at Mock Crest Tavern….Ever!
