Trained as a jazz drummer and choral vocalist, Chris met Sasha, a self taught punk rocker and singer-songwriter in the spring of 2010 when they were both cast in a Bangor Maine production of the rock ‘n roll musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
They have been working together ever since to find where disparate influences come together to create melody forward, hard hitting, genre bending rock ‘n roll. When Particles Collide has built a reputation as a must see band one show at a time touring all over the US and Canada during school vacations when Sasha, a former high school chemistry teacher, could take time off from work. They are currently a full time, independent touring outfit living out of their 2014 Dodge Promaster. Under their own record label, Unstoppable Rock Records they have released seven sets of recordings including two full length vinyl records (Photoelectric 2014-sold out, and Ecotone 2016-currently in the album’s second pressing).
