About Me

CHRIS SAMUEL

Chris Samuel was born in the United States in 1994, but moved to Switzerland at a young age, where he grew up in Aargau and later in Bern.

During his school days he discovered his love for music, learned to play the guitar and piano and was a member of various bands.

In 2019 Chris Samuel was a member, by then as a solo artist, of the Gustav Academy, a funding program under the Freiburg musician GUSTAV. As part of this, he appeared at renowned festivals such as the Gurtenfestival, Stars of Sounds, Les Georges, Fetes des Vignerons and Pod'Ring.

 

Together with producer and guitarist Andreas Eriksson (Crazy Lixx, Inglorious) he released four singles in 2020, including Bleed, Stay, So High and Fallen Skies.

Stay achieved national attention from some prominent radio stations, which was followed by concerts and festival appearances throughout Switzerland.

 

After the releases of the two singles Addicted and One More Day, Chris Samuel signed a management contract with Nucleus Management.

In 2021 he was a participant in the SRF television program Stadt, Land, Talent under Stefanie Heinzmann.

In terms of musical style, Chris Samuel can be categorized as pop, folk and folktronica.

He often uses acoustic instruments - especially stringed instruments - and combines them with EDM and electronica/dance elements.

Chris Samuel performs with a band or as a solo artist, using a loop pedal and sampler to record different sound loops live, superimposing them and creating beats, melodies and harmonies.
