Chris Lock is a singer / songwriter /performer based in beautiful Lake Tahoe.

His music is a cocktail of “Bob Dylan meets Kurt Cobain, with a shot of Tom Waits and Chris Cornell”. He plays straight from the heart acoustic rock - a mix of original and cover songs.

He strives to play musics that you will love après ski, at a party, at a restaurant, in a bar or sitting on the beach laughing and drinking beer.

He’s inspired by life, love, fun, pain, whisky, smart/sexy women, first tracks in the powder, bar owners who book great musicians, good friends, and family.

His performances are passionate events that leave you with his songs stuck in your head.

You can often find him playing at a cool bar, restaurant, coffee house, private party, beach blanket, or even on the occasional street corner (he loves

being a busker).


Chris wrote his first song with his grandfather Jack when he was 3. Jack loved music. Chris’ dad and two uncles love and play music.

As a kid he went to a fine arts school (think “Fame”) and learned to sing opera and perform. Then, his voice broke; he got his first guitar, discovered beer, bars, and babes.

He and his buddies Johnny & Dave started a bunch of rock/punk/alternative bands in the standard teenage quest to meet chicks and become the next Rolling Stones. As they became young men a disease called adulthood overcame them. They got jobs, became responsible and then forgot about rock & roll...

Then one day, Chris started playing again with friends. He bought a Gibson guitar, started playing live, writing music, moved to beautiful Lake Tahoe and started an epic quest to be a musical ski bum.
