Our Story

As an award-winning singer-songwriter, producer and a self-taught multi-instrumentalist, Chris started playing music at the age of 7.  His music has taken him around the world including Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Slovakia, Italy, Hungary, Belgium, France, The Vatican City (performing or the late Pope on his birthday), Venezuela, and throughout the United States and Canada. 

He has simple goal: To inspire music and creative tendencies through the arts.  

With this in mind, Chris founded Third Wheel Project in 2008. The project has its roots in Alaska where Chris was raised and his love of music began. What started as a collaboration of local Alaskan musicians, Third Wheel Project quickly developed a name for itself in the Alaskan and Midwestern communities. As they grew, they set up chapters in Alaska, Hawaii, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Germany.  

Essentially a super band ranging from Reggae to Folk Rock, to Roots & Blues, the seasoned musicians that make up Third Wheel Project have played all over the globe from the quiet coffee shops in Alaska to the Vatican City. The Minnesota/Wisconsin Chapter has become home base for Chris where he can be found playing locally with core Third Wheel Project band when he is not touring.  

As more than a band, Third Wheel Project strives to make tools and resources available to artists to help them pursue their dreams of music. Third Wheel Project can provide services such as recording in studio or live, mixing, creating a online presence, and booking shows for public and private events.   

Still at its core, Third Wheel Project is a community of artists who are passionate about the music they play and create. We hope you enjoy all the dedication, fun, and hard work that goes into it.
