Christopher Hayzel is embarking on a unique and unusual tour. The Indigo Soul Tour is using an unusual model in that he will hire local indie artists to open for him in each different city he and his partner “Shiloh” plays in. In addition Chris will perform as a solo artist but with a twist, he will be using “Looping”. Looping is a technique which utilizes a “Looping” pedal (much like a digital recorder) and a variety of instruments as well as his own voice to build each song right in front of the audience. This is a unique way to bring the creative spirit up close and personal, and involve everyone who comes to the show in the creative experience. If you have never witnessed this performance technique you are definitely in for a treat. In the hands of a master, this innovative interactive building of a song before your eyes (or ears) adds a new dimension to the fan/performer experience.
To add to this amazing new tour model, if he makes the extended Kickstarter funding Goal, he will donate money to a music program in each city he performs in. Listen for yourself as Christopher explains his plans for this journey. And take a moment to check out his website and Kickstarter campaign, and if it moves you.

Christopher Hayzel is the sum of a family bathed in musical talent. From a young age he grew up immersed in artistic culture both socially and professionally from growing up in the studio with father Howard Hewett (Shalamar) to being on set with mother Nia Peeples (Fame). At age five he finally found his own means with which to express his passions for music and has not stopped ever since, spawning a fierce hunger to expand his musical and instrumental repertoire. Growing up in the world of entertainment and being raised on the road, Chris is the product of a diverse musical landscape, which shows in his artistic history alone. His musical career spans over various different projects, tours and even reaches its hands into the world of Film Composition. However, his biggest musical leap yet has only just begun.
After the disbandment of his band Ellis., Chris set out to create a full band sound and feel …without a band. Armed with nothing more than a guitar, a bass, and a couple of key electronics, this musical mastermind offers an intriguing live experience and a new approach to the world of “looping”, building each song piece by piece right before the audience’s eyes. Upon experiencing his loop-infused one-man-band act spectators can expect to be whisked upon a musical journey and left with their minds blown.
