About

Chris Forte

Guitarist, Musician, Philosopher

Welcome to my site and thank you for your interest in my music!

2022 has been another exciting year so far with many amazing opportunities musically!

I will be touring again in Mannheim Steamroller with their 2022 Christmas Tour! Tour dates will be announced soon!

I have joined the Buddy Rich Big Band Machine and will perform for the first time with them July 7th at Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI.

My current album, Backyard Astronomy, has been featured on several Spotify playlists, and received over 10,000 plays on Spotify since its release.

I am co-producing an album with a great Americana/Blues artist named J.C. Clements for release later this year!

I have joined the pit for a Paramount Production of Fun Home at the Copley Theatre in Aurora, IL. Playing acoustic and electric guitars, beautifully orchestrated, superb acting and singing. I'm very proud to be a part of this show August 3rd-September 18th.

Here is a link to my YouTube page if you'd like to browse some of my live videos. If you like what you see or hear, please feel free to let me know and don't forget to subscribe, like, comment, and share.

I appreciate the support. Thank you!
