Christian Housel, a native of Northern California, now makes his home near Boise, the capital city of Idaho. Christian began playing the piano at a young age and never looked back. Through his youth, Christian studied both classical and popular music. In and out of lessons, Christian began experimenting with composition at an early age. While at the university, Christian studied classical piano and developed his own unique style of playing and writing. In his early twenties Christian became a working piano player, sitting in with different rock and gospel groups, doing solo work in clubs, restaurants, spas, malls, and churches. In the late nineties, Christian began playing gospel, jazz fusion, and rock along with his solo piano work. He continues to compose instrumental and vocal music and has even broken into the business with the recent licensing of his first vocal tune to the well-known gospel group who records out of Nashville. Still, the composer inside called and Christian began composing solo piano for musical recordings in 2000. He has always believed he had something more to say with his solo piano music'"its simplicity and passion are clear to the listener.

Christian was introduced to the music of David Lanz in the early 90âs and immediately became consumed with the beauty and simplicity of this âNew Ageâ music. To date Christian has recorded two independent recordings: âReflectionsâ in 2002 and âAfter the Rainâ in 2005. Christian has had many influences on the piano: David Lanz, Dave Grusin, Jim Brickman, George Winston, and Andre Crouch just to name a few.

As a solo piano artist, Christian enjoys the small venue that communicates intimacy and creates community. âPlease come into my private little world of beauty where the piano becomes a singular voice of passionâ he often says as he begins a concert. Christian enjoys and is grateful for those who come to hear his performances. Through is music, his message of hope and purpose can be heard. âMusic can change the heart; it can change the mindâ. Each of Christianâs songs have a story behind them and he often shares these before he performs them, leaving images of people and places in the minds of the listeners.

Many have compared Christianâs music to the one and only Jim Brickman. Christianâs distinctive style stands alone with its own voice and purpose. Christian continues to enjoy success as a performer and educator. He recently traveled to San Francisco, California to perform at the NASSP national convention, sharing the stage with such dignitaries as Margaret Spelling, the national secretary of education, and Mario Cuomo, the former Governor of New York. Christian continues to expand his listening audience as he recently became one of the featured artists who enjoys airplay on the radio station âWhisperingsâ'" as well as other independent ambient music stations on the east coast. Chris hopes to continue with the success of his music and take it to a greater national stage in the years to come. As both a piano artist and educator at heart, Christian believes his music has a deeper purpose and hopes to use his music to encourage others to find their voice, passion, and purpose in this world.
