Weaving between two continents, Chris J. Connolly’s music has been his support system and a reflection of his journeys.
Originally from Staffordshire, England - Chris spent his early years performing in hometown venues before eventually crossing the Atlantic to reside in his current home on Long Island. Inspired by both early American roots music and modern alt-rock, Chris grew to craft his own unique style of writing and phrasing that moves between sublime, evolving and hook based melodies.
Chris’s debut album Flying Lessons, released in 2015, is anchored around his raw acoustic guitar and vocal arrangements while also exploring newfound sonic territory.
On his genre-bending sophomore album, "Moving Maps", Chris rediscovers his rock roots while interlacing an eclectic mix of instrumentation and further evolving his songwriting. Differing from his previous album that was primarily a solo effort, "Moving Maps" includes performances and inspiration from his live band members Pete Mancini (Butchers Blind) and Anthony Pravata (Miles to Dayton), and collaborative producer Scott Simon. Recorded over a two-year span, "Moving Maps" is a refracted portrait of family, separation, perseverance, and the bonds and challenges of modern human connections.
