An In Depth Interview with Chris Antonik
The album spent three weeks at #1 on DAWG FM (Canada’s only all blues FM station), attained significant airplay across Canada, the US and Europe, including on Sirius XM Bluesville, and was nominated for Best Blues Album by the German Record Critics’ Association. Oregon’s CascadeBlues Association called it “one of the finest releases from the Great White North in many a year.”
Chris has performed at major blues festivals across Canada, and has toured the US extensively, including performances at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago (for the 2015 Buddy Guy’s Legends Blues Festival), and Biscuits & Blues in San Francisco. In 2016, Chris returned to Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago, and also undertook his first UK tour, headlining the Upton Blues Festival. On April 7, 2017, Chris will release his third studio record Monarch, which completes a trilogy of self-expression started in 2010.
