The son of a motorcycle racer from a small town in west Texas, Chris Beall is a career musician who traveled the southern circuit playing blues guitar in his early years for regional blues artists such as Michael "Happy Fat" Gilbert. Influenced by many forms of American music, he did a stint in Nashville, but currently resides in Austin Texas where he writes, performs, and produces music. His discography includes two albums: 2010's "Brand New World" and 2013's "The Gin Mill Hymns". The latter featuring "Dug Down Deep", a song of second chances set to the backdrop of his father's ("the motorcycle man") debilitating crash "around" 1973. Sounds like Tom Petty with a hint of Ryan Adams, and the storytelling of Bruce Springsteen.
