Christian Whalen

His unique approach to his music has made an impression on many who have heard him play. Spending some years touring with bands which covered all types of music, Christian has grown to produce his tunes in a solo style over the last few years lending his style to those who enjoy listening to the intricacies of the song.

Always looking to re-discover the music, he recently began listening to fingerstyle guitar which has had an influence on his more recent endeavours. Christian has played his music in Canada, the US and international venues which included playing for the troops in Afghanistan.

The band’s repertoire ranges far and wide, from classics of the ‘great American songbook’ by the likes of George Gershwin and Jerome Kern, to songs by Willie Nelson, Stevie Wonder, and Sting.Band members
