Christian Samuel Glaus (born 13 January 1994), professionally known as Chris Samuel, is an American-born Swiss singer/songwriter.
Samuel was born in the United States and moved to Switzerland at an early age. He began playing the guitar at the age of thirteen. As guitarist and later on singer of the hardrock formation “Drizella”, he gained his earliest live experiences.
Since 2017, however, Chris increasingly appeared as a solo artist. The admission to the Gustav Academy in 2018/2019 gave rise to new opportunities in which he performed at renowned Swiss festivals (such as Gurtenfestival, Am Schluss, PodRing, Stars of Sounds…).
The recordings of the first EP, which is to be created in cooperation with Swedish producer Andreas H. Eriksson, are in prospect.
Musically, Samuel can be categorized in modern Folk with influences in country, pop, and rock.
