"Striking a rare populist "note," young guitar firebrand Chris Watson from Denton, Texas declares, "I make music for the American working man because that's what I am, and that's who I care about." He started playing guitar around 13 and joined his father's blues band as lead guitarist in 2005. In 2006 he formed the Chris Watson Band and years of blazing through the clubs in the D/FW area resulted in 'Just for Show' in 2010. An impressive, all-original set, it quickly whipped around the world on the radio waves as Watson won the Future of the Blues Awar from the Blues Underground Network. Wise beyond his years with a burgeoning talent to match, his second release, Pleasure and Pain, reveals a modern master in the making." ~Dave Rubin of Blind Raccoon
"What a pleasure it was to work with the Chris Watson Band. This young man is a guitar virtuoso, a great singer and entertainer, and an all around really nice guy. In addition, he surrounds himself with other "A+" musicians and presto, you have a monster sound every bit as good as many national touring performers." ~Glenn Smith of Glenn Smith Productions
"Combining southern rock flair with a deep blues foundation, the Chris Watson Band is a true Texas Rock Band. Front man Chris Watson has been described as an “old soul” and a “guitar-slinger.” Watson exudes a singing and songwriting ability that's seasoned beyond his years." ~ Blues Underground Network
"High energy blues-rock, raw and unpretentious, welcome to the musical world of Chris Watson." ~ Blue Lisa - Southwest Blues Magazine
