Chris Compton

Chris is a singing, songwriting, guitar-playing dude. His music, like him, is good-natured and affable, but with a touch of darkness that reveals itself in unexpected ways. 2013's Hyperconnector and Stronger Machines EPs showcase a knack for crafting little bursts of rock and roll sunshine that simultaneously feel fresh and familiar. 2014's Rising Moon Anxiety EP add elements of soul, country and punk to a winning formula. Tastemaking blog Chicagoist.com admitted that "it's hard not to get swept up in Wade's wake as his songs rush by." Wade honed his writing chops with Chicago power-pop band Treaty of Paris.
