“Four stars – another bulletin from the New York street poet with a blues soul…the music is as tight as a hangman’s knot.” MOJO, #3 Blues Album of 2014
“The Chris Bergson Band sets a bold new standard for roots music…” Hittin’ the Note
“From blazing rock to funk to soul to Delta blues and all that’s in between.” Elmore Magazine
“Authentic but not stifled by tradition…Bergson is the classic triple threat.” Jambands.com
“Over the past decade, Chris Bergson has become one of the most interesting blues-inspired songwriters.
He describes the streetscapes and nightscapes of city life, painting small, memorable pictures, a kind of Edward Hopper of the blues. Bergson doesn’t do predictable, but there’s a visible thread of blues awareness running through the fabric of everything he writes, sings and plays: he is a concise and subtle guitarist and tough, grainy singer.” The Blues Magazine (UK)
Chris Bergson was inducted into the New York Blues Hall of Fame in February 2015. With MOJO Magazine’s #1 Blues Album of 2008, Fall Changes,#2 Blues Album of 2011, Imitate the Sun, and #3 Blues Album of 2014, Live at Jazz Standard, New York guitarist/singer Chris Bergson has established himself as “one of the most inventive songwriters in modern blues music” (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, B.B. King, Norah Jones, John Hammond, Etta James, and Bettye LaVette, to name just a few.
