With a smooth bravado and a distinctive musical swagger, Chris Baluyut really impresses the aural senses with his debut album titled ‘Leap Year’. For me, it’s those subtle things he does on the guitar that really set the mood and tone for the entire song. He is a true guitarist at heart with a solid penchant for songwriting. Those two skills combined can make future classics. Each track is designed for intimate venues with the intention to become the soundtrack for that future memory. Chris is an artist to watch, for sure.
