STG Presents #1hr2manup at The Neptune on Thursday, July 19, 2018 as part of STG's free Nights at the Neptune series!
Combining samples that address social injustice, live music, and improvised rhyme, Chris Anderson creates biographical performance pieces that reflect an inner-city youth grappling with his harsh environment. In his Nights at the Neptune performance he will build these pieces of music in real time, illuminating both his process and inspiration as an artist.
Chris Anderson is a Songwriter/Producer, DJ, MC, and Drummer who has toured internationally for more than 10 years. He has performed and/or recorded with Erykah Badu, R Kelly, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Gorillaz, Mos Def, members of Wu Tang Clan, and other A-list artists. His recent work includes leading Global Heat band in 25 shows at schools and youth centers throughout the Reno NV region sponsored by Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts; features on Seattle’s King 5 Morning News (NBC), ITV DJ Sessions, MTV 2, VH1 and other TV shows; and two upcoming CD releases of his original music with Triple-Platinum Producer Richard Garcia of PMG. While Chris’s songs cover a wide range of topics, his songs “Puppets” and “Rain” are particularly relevant to contemporary issues of economic and social justice inequities. Chris is currently on iTunes with Buttonpushers flagship song Top of the World.
