Chris Marsol discovered his love for music at an early age. By the time he was 11, he taught himself how to beat-box, recording his improvised “songs” on an old tape recorder while drumming on the kitchen counter. At age 14, he joined an R&B acapella group with his friends and from that moment on made a conscious effort to integrate music and singing into his life. Besides being a self-taught pianist, he has been playing the guitar for the past seven years and writes and produces all his music, which allows him the personal and private experience to create authentic pieces of work that are extensions of him. He is inspired by Stevie Wonder, Prince, Kurt Cobain, D’Angelo, The Beatles, and Radiohead.
At 17, Chris began acting and is pursuing it in tandem with his music career. He made his film debut in the movie “I’m in Love with a Church Girl” (2012), stars in “Doggie Boogie” (2012), and was recently a principle in the play “Farragut North,” which became the screenplay “The Ides of March.”
Chris’ goal is to inspire his audience and encourage their artistic expression in the same ways that he is inspired by his passion for the arts: acting, singing, poetry, and visual.
