With a sound that merges modern Country, Pop-infused melodies, and a lot to say, Chris Housman’s music showcases an authenticity only made possible by his eclectic musical tastes and Midwest farm upbringing. Originally from Hanston, Kansas (population: 200), Housman immersed himself in music at the age of seven when he taught himself to play fiddle and began performing in a family Bluegrass/Country band. Through the years, Housman’s musical tastes were as varied as his choice in instrumentation, as he gravitated towards the sounds of Motown and Folk, and he added piano, upright bass, guitar, and even the spoons to his list of talents. Eventually relocating to Nashville, TN to attend Belmont University, Housman continued his musical journey and began performing with his upright bass at over 150 colleges around the country. His unique talent for whistling recently earned him a spot as one of the Top 5 musical whistlers in the world, and he has found a way to merge all of his influences, experiences, and talents into a sound uniquely his own. With his latest release, a viral TikTok song about being a “red state blueneck”, Chris is ready to bridge the gap between the Country influences of his upbringing and the modern, more queer, more inclusive world and genre he wants to see - where, as the anthem sings - “y’all means all”.
