CHRIS BARRON (SPIN DOCTORS)

Chris Barron (think Leonard Cohen meets Jack Johnson in a dive bar that was nice when Cole Porter used to hang out there) is best known as the lead singer of the band Spin Doctors. Chris plays nifty chords on an old Gibson to masterfully crafted songs that are poignant yet wistful and funny

Chris Barron is best known as the lead singer of the band Spin Doctors. What you maybe didn’t know is that long before he was that goofy guy in the hat on MTV, he was an even goofier kid with an acoustic guitar. Chris plays nifty chords on an old Gibson to masterfully crafted songs that are poignant yet wistful and funny, all the while singing in a manner that’s sweet and somewhat different from what you would expect if you only knew his hits, “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” and “Two Princes”. Live, his stage patter is almost as entertaining as his singing. A powerful story teller, at once hilarious and thought provoking, Chris sets up his songs with anecdotes from a life on the road, from opening for and encountering legends like the Rolling Stones to Polar expeditions. He says, “I don’t really think about what I’m going to say beforehand. I just say stuff and if it goes over well, I say more stuff like that later.” A founding member of a band that’s loved by millions of people the round world over, Chris’ solo shows have all the lyric poetry and singing virtuosity that Spin Doctors fans appreciate along with a range of expression and songwriting that will delight and surprise.
