Chris first began writing songs when he was a freshman in high school and he believes the first song he ever wrote was called “Your Eyes.” Moreno prides himself on being a very open and honest person so it makes sense that my preferred style of songwriting mimics that, Country of course . Performing these songs can make him feel pretty vulnerable sometimes, as he writes about his personal experiences.
Moreno ‘rediscovered’ his love of music and songwriting several years ago with a newly rekindled passion.
Throughout his teens and into college Chris mostly played guitar and sang backup in the bands he played with. At some point he just lost the drive to continue doing that. This led to a six year break from playing and performing music. As time went on however, Moreno started realizing more and more that he was just, “living for the weekends” and while life was good, it wasn’t great. He knew it was music that was missing.
Moving to Nashville was based on his belief that this was the place where many of the best artists in the world are and since he has aspirations to reach that level, that was where he needed to be. According to Chris,
"There are so many resources, places to play and songwriters to collaborate that it just felt like a no-brainer to move here. It’s kind of like Disney World for a musician and I’m convinced that this is the best home base for me to have while I continue to grow my music career."
Known for having an extremely loyal fan base which started in Boston and is quickly expanding to the rest of the world through relentless touring and an engaged online presence, he performs both acoustic and with his band, and has performed over 500 shows in 20 different states. He was nominated for Best Country Artist two years in a row by the New England & Boston Music Awards, as well as best songwriter, and best song (Before You), and Chris's latest single "Used To This" has received high praise from press outlets all over the world.
Chris's honest sound and sincere delivery connects with fans on a personal level and his music is a genuine reflection of his real life experiences and boy-next-door personality. Moreno’s music mixes elements of a modern country sound with a noticeable Pop/Rock edge, and he brazenly wears the alternative rock influences of the 90’s and 2000’s on his sleeve. The result is a unique sound that feels both fresh and familiar at the same time.
Chris continues to tour and put out a steady stream of music and has worked with Nashville producers Jonathan Roye (Kelsea Ballerini) and Justin Wantz.
