New Music Tuesday: Alley Cat Blues (meow)

Hey folks!  It’s New Music Tuesday: Alley Cat Blues (meow).

And on and on I go.  Still more blues are coming up for you next week!.  My cover of the 1961 instrumental “Alley Cat” by Bent Fabric, featuring my own arrangement and instrumentation that I have dubbed “Alley Cat Blues” will be released on December 4th. Use this form to Pre-Save “Alley Cat Blues” (or paste https://show.co/5PHNE93 into your browser) to be the first to hear this song!  After December 4th, check back and you can find the tune also on my Music Store page.

Some Hip-Pop Beats

Some “Hip-Pop Beats” for ya.  Maybe I stumbled into a new beat genre.  Just sharing a little bit from my next tune I’m working on.  This one will have some hip hop beats going against a pop-rock beat courtesy of Alan White of John Lennon fame.  Stay tuned for the full tune coming pretty soon.

A Quick Intro to Christopher J.

I am Chris Hartzog and this is my website, Christopher J. Music.  I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest in the Seattle, Washington area.

I’ve loved music as long as I can remember.  During many years of being a special needs parent to a very high needs child with autism, I started playing guitar again and started writing music.  And through that experience I learned that music not only transcends languages, it also transcends disabilities.

Today my music covers a variety of styles and instruments from folk to blues/jazz, and classical to pop-rock. I am a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, bass (electric and upright), ukulele, keyboards, and a singer and songwriter.  I also enjoy playing classical music on the double bass with my local community symphony orchestra.  And, I write, arrange, record and produce songs and put them on this website for people to download and hopefully share and enjoy.
