For fans of:Dawes, The Avett Brothers, Mumford & Sons, Trampled By Turtles
Description

Christian Lopez is not merely riding the wave of Americana music - the West Virginia native is bending it to its knees. With the will of his voice and the stomp of a steady beat, Lopez is pioneering his own brand of alternative folk country rock. Like a young Walt Whitman, Lopez translates the iconic America before him into rousing romps and searing serenades employing crisp, thoughtful imagery and storytelling. Taking listeners on a heartfelt, emotional rampage with energy and excitement, Lopez cares less about the hook than hooking listeners with the range and passion in his voice. One moment the music plumbs the depths of one’s interior life and the next it whips the listener into a frenzied call to stomp, holler and roll.

Playing since the age of five, Lopez formed and fronted the band Joe Taxi at the age of fifteen. The band quickly garnered success including a slot on the 2012 Van’s Warped tour and wins at the 2012 West Virginia University Coca Cola, Moonstruck, OttoBar and 2013 Blue Ridge Music Festival Battle of the Bands competitions. At age 17, after tens of thousands of touring miles covered, Christian was determined to carve out a career in music founded on his love of singing, writing, and performing a style of music he felt in his heart, but had yet to bring to life.

With a growing reputation for originality and intensity on stage, the newly rechristened Christian Lopez Band continues to deliver, becoming a favorite at festivals, colleges and premiere venues. In addition to touring, Lopez is currently at work on his debut release, which is being produced by Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, Rival Sons) to be released later this year.
