His 2005 recording, Soul Food Vol. 1, has been featured on the Gospel Music Channel nationally, and recordings with his current band, Dave LeMieux and House of Soul, have won national awards and garnered some real buzz in the industry. Chris has produced horn section work for clients worldwide and recording projects for a wide variety of artists. Some examples include soundtrack work for a pilot program on Nickelodeon, an audio book for Zondervan, and documentary films in the US and Japan. Chris currently works as a music director at Colorado Community Church, and serves as Executive Director of a non-profit organization, More Than Music, that specializes in giving away musical instruments all over the world. Aside from touring and recording with House of Soul, Chris enjoys cutting loose with his local funk / jazz quintet, Mo’Kestra, whenever schedules permit. When he's not on the road or in the studio, Chris likes nothing better than to head to the park with his wife Beth and kids Joshua and Sarah.
