Chris Buhalis has met many people during his extensive travels of North America, and they haunt the songs of this promising songwriter from Michigan. Buhalis was born and raised on Detroit's east side 28 years ago, but his songs come from places you can only find if you stick out your thumb and follow fate's lead. From Alaska's whiskey soaked bars to the spark and steel filled auto plants of Detroit, Buhalis'' songs speak of real people in real situations.
Chris is not only a songwriter, but an accomplished performer; having appeared on radio's "Acoustic Cafe" and performing live at such venerable and respected venues as the Ark in Ann Arbor, MI. In his endless series of gigs throughout the Midwest, Northwest and beyond, Chris has shared with great artists like David Bromberg and Catie Curtis and opened for such luminaries as Dave Van Ronk. Chris also recorded with the legendary Townes Van Zandt who makes a vocal appearance on Chris' debut CD Kenai Dreams now available on Thursday/One Man Clapping Records.
"Chris Buhalis shows not only that
he can write beautiful, effortless Americana as honest and gently
insightful as any you've heard, but also that he can turn a phrase as
deftly with his pen as he can with his voice. Someone call Garrison
Keillor quick! This Buhalis guy belongs on Prairie Home
Companion or there is no justice."
- Todd Spencer, Current Magazine
