Chris Blacker is a highly versatile and skilled musician who has moved in leaps and bounds through the Seattle music scene, often changing direction, but always making waves in the process. He has played a wide variety of musical styles, including straight-ahead jazz, rock, classical, avant-garde, and Latin music, and has played with many Seattle luminaries including Robbie Jordan, Lonnie Mardis, Amy Rubin, Pearl Django, and Circus Contraption. For three years, he directed and composed for the Chris Blacker Quartet, a chamber-jazz group that combined contemporary classical music with jazz and rock influences. In 2006, he received an ASCAP Foundation Young Jazz Composer Award for his composition "Tidal."
“Labyrinths” is Chris Blacker''s self-produced EP consisting of five piano-driven pop songs, augmented by the use of a variety of instruments, including strings, horns, guitars, and accordions. Powered by his tremendous skill at the piano, informed by his vast knowledge of different musical genres, he has created an evocative and highly personal style with shadings of folk, jazz, and classical music.
