Vocalist and Upright Bassist, Chris Conte performs Classic, Swinging American Songbook Jazz & Blues favorites. He takes influence from musical legends, such as: Nat "King" and Natalie Cole, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Harry Connick Jr., and Diana Krall. His voice is often compared to that of a young Chet Baker or Mel Torme; while his bass playing compliments his dulcet vocals with a deep, dark, rich accompaniment. As of late, Chris has also incorporated selections from iconic blues man B.B. King and "The Genius of Soul" Ray Charles to round out a tour of vintage Americana heard through Swing, Jazz and Blues!
