“Chris O Leary Band's current release - "7 Minutes Late" (2019) - is fully loaded with 12 new original fractured tales of hope and despair. O'Leary s exceptionally impressive songwriting, impassioned singing and harp work are on full display on this release. Chris will be on tour throughout the US and Europe, with his incendiary collection of well-seasoned players.
Chris O'Leary: Lead Singer/Harp
Chris Vitarello: Guitar
Matt Raymond: Bass
Andy Stahl: Tenor Sax
Chris DiFrancesco: Baritone Sax
Jason Devlin: Drums
The Chris O'Leary Band's music is rooted in the blues and steeped in the tradition of Memphis, Chicago and New Orleans with shades of New Orleans, rockabilly and big, high-energy sound. Levon Helm can be heard in Chris's early sessions, and sitting in with regular gigs. Soon, Levon asked Chris to join the house band at his new club in New Orleans. Chris’s band relocated and became the focal point of Levon Helm's Barn Burners, backing up touring stars and opening for New Orleans' finest players.
Awards include Blues Blast Best New Artist Debut winner and BMA nominee.
