Chris Rupp is a classically-trained, versatile and creative musician who has over 20 years’ experience as a performer, composer and arranger.
His a cappella group Home Free won NBC’s ‘The Sing-Off’ competition for a cappella groups (previously won by Pentatonix) in 2013. With Chris, they recorded several albums and toured extensively in both the USA and Europe.
In 2016 Chris decided to leave the band to explore his own musical passions and interests.
Since then he has formed another band, 7th Avenue, and has released two albums with them. His solo albums include a cappella hymns/gospel songs, original songs, piano compositions and collaborations with other artists including Simon Khorolskiy, Tim Foust and Melissa Priller (violin).
Chris is available on Sunday 20th October for bookings, either from individuals or groups.
One booking already made is an hour’s songwriting session, bought as a husband’s 40th birthday present.
