Chris Paterno

Musician in Boston, Massachusetts

Listen to my music

I am a self-taught guitarist, harmonica player and vocalist that believes in living life as an open book. My music comes from personal, everyday experiences and emotions, giving it a raw, personable and powerful sound.

Coming from just outside of Philadelphia, PA, I first encountered music through the sounds of Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi and other classic rockers, while also enjoying the Mo-town Soul heritage of the city. I have found a way to combine these two influences in my sound, adding soulful vocals and lyrics over innovative, percussive guitar parts.

Currently, I am influenced by artists like Ed Sheeran, James Bay and Amos Lee.
