Chris Bergson

With MOJO Magazine's #1 Blues Album of 2008, Fall Changes, and #2 Blues Album of 2011, Imitate the Sun, New York guitarist/singer Chris Bergson has established himself as “one of the most inventive songwriters in modern blues music.” (Richard Skelly, All Music Guide), creating his own blend of blues, roots and soul. Chris Bergson has performed and/or shared the stage with Hubert Sumlin, Levon Helm, Norah Jones, John Hammond, Little Sammy Davis, Etta James, Bettye LaVette, Annie Ross, Al Foster, and Matt Wilson, to name just a few.

“Bergson is the real deal...reminiscent of The Band at their best...high octane funk...wonderful stuff indeed!” Blues In The Northwest

“Gut-busting, horn-bedecked NY blues.” “A powerful spirit with flavours of Ray Charles and Tom Waits... These guys could strip down the engine of a soulbluesmobile and put it back together blindfold.” “The ambience of Chris Bergson's music is an Edward Hopper world of suspicion and solitude, dusk-time avenues and dimly lit bars...This is the terrain of Tom Waits and Lou Reed, and Bergson has something of each in his gruff, laconic delivery, but his sound is intransigently his own.” MOJO

“Outstanding. Deeply soulful vocals and dynamic fretwork.” Blues In Britain

“Bergson's stirring voice and glorious guitar command immediate attention.” “Chris Bergson writes memorable songs, sings them with passion, and plays such a mean guitar that the great Hubert Sumlin has been known to sit in at his gigs.” Blues Revue
