CHRIS BETHMANN is an Americana songwriter on the rise. A native of Rochester, NY, he's a storyteller, and a poet, channeling influences like Eric Church, Jason Isbell, James McMurtry, and Bruce Springsteen. Equally at home on the electric and acoustic guitars, Bethmann sings about urban renewal, love and loss, and coming of age with honesty and integrity. He can lull you into introspection and energize you with tasty riffs and wit in consecutive songs. His latest release, Naked Bourbon (December 2018), is a rock 'n roll testament to coming of age in the millennial era. Bethmann is joined by Scott Kwiatek on bass and and New York City-based Eric Metzgar on drums, the rhythm section featured on Naked Bourbon. They are trained improvisors with rock 'n roll roots, giving Bethmann's songs an unpredictable and tasteful quality.
