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.

Crosscut Saw is Live

Crosscut Saw is Live!  My cover of Albert King’s Crosscut Saw was actually released back on August 31st and I had meant to send this out to you earlier but I’ve also been in the process of rebuilding…..and I mean completely rebuilding my online music store and that ended up taking a lot more time and effort than I figured in advance!  Be sure to check out my new music store.  So anyway —  here is Crosscut Saw — enjoy!

New Music Store

Hey people, I’m excited to announce that after a LOT of work, my old music store has been rebuilt into the NEW music store.  You can check it out here.  Some cool new features are the ability to filter songs by genre, e.g. “rock” or “blues”, etc.  plus you can sort the list in various ways.  As before, you can still pay totally securely through PayPal.  My site has nothing to do with your payment other than sending you to PayPal.  If there are other features that you would like to see, let me know.

New Music Monday

Last year…. I was into adapting classical music to the blues or putting blues into classical with my release of my newest CD, “Bluesy Bach & Friends”.

This year I have been getting into pure blues, especially electric blues and even more specifically as played by Albert King, Freddie King and BB King.  Already released this year are my covers of Freddie King’s “Key to the Highway” and “Hide Away”.  Next up to bat is Albert King.  And on August 31st my cover of AK’s cover of “Crosscut Saw” will be released.

Check it out:

So…..Many blues artists have contended with the “sinner or saint” struggle and started out in church and moved to the blues, or vice versa!  Use this form to Pre-Save “Crosscut Saw” to be the first to hear if this song is about a sinner or saint!

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.
