At 19, inspired by Joni Mitchell, early Genesis, Cat Stevens, the Talking Heads and other visionaries of the era, Spheeris along with friend, Paul Voudouris, entertained and inspired restaurant, coffeehouse, symphony, and college audiences with a blend of all original music and lyrics that were progressive and unique.
At age 25, Spheeris set up a studio, bought his first keyboards, and embarked on his own blend of instrumental music that would help found a new musical genre of New Age. Within three years of the inception of his solo career, Chris caught the attention of Columbia Records and went on to become one of the first New Age instrumentalists to be signed to a major label. Over the next 15 years, with 10 new recordings, Spheeris has developed a signature style of cross-cultural, romantic instrumental music imbued with a quality that is at once, intimate, exotic, passionate and universal.
