Chris Bullock (of Snarky Puppy)
Chris Bullock is a saxophonist, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. He is a longtime member of the genre-bending ensemble, Snarky Puppy. With this group, he has received three Grammy awards and maintains an active schedule performing for audiences all over the world. Chris resides in Brooklyn, NY where he balances his time leading his solo project, playing live shows with a diverse range of artists, and performing for studio sessions.
Originally from Asheville, NC, Chris' musical obsession began as a child with early interests in the Beach Boys, hip-hop cassettes, and learning the clarinet and electric guitar. Over time the saxophone became central to his music making.
Chris is currently finishing his first solo album, Boomtown, of all new, original music. This album is a hybrid of sorts that combines elements of Chris’ woodwinds, live jazz, and electronic music and production. His interest in hip-hop and electronic music has pushed him into exploring new creative ventures that include DJ’ing, beat making, and production.
As a multi-instrumentalist, Chris has performed and recorded with a variety of artists including David Crosby, Michael McDonald, Lalah Hathaway, Charlie Hunter, Chris Thile, Eric Harland, Phish, and Soulive. In addition to his work as a live musician, Chris is also an educator and clinician. Chris Bullock plays D’addario reeds, Yamaha Saxophones, and Earthquaker Devices FX pedals.
