Bio / Songlist

My name is Chris Lebresco.  I am an acoustic guitarist and vocalist.  I have been playing guitar for the last 15 years and performing regularly in bars and restaurants in the area for the last 10+ years.  I play a wide variety of everyone’s favorite acoustic cover songs from the 70’s to today.

With a soothing voice and a mellow guitar style I continue to grow my fan base and am consistently asked back for return appearances wherever I perform. With a catalog of over 500+ songs, I can quickly adjust my song selection to please audiences of all ages.  I am very professional, reliable and easy to work with.  Additionally, I use the most professional sounding, state-of-the-art equipment available assuring you that your guests have a great time.

My influences include artists such as Ray LaMontagne, Pearl Jam, Cat Stevens, and Bruce Springsteen to name a few.  Some of the other artists I cover include…Neil Young, Johnny Cash, Zac Brown Band, Jack Johnson, The Grateful Dead, Dave Matthews, The Killers, Counting Crows, Tom Petty, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Elton John, Billy Joel, U2, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, James Taylor, Oasis, David Gray, Van Morrison, Pink Floyd and Jimmy Buffett and many other artists you know from the 60‘s to today!
