Combining a childlike playfulness with a sage sensibility, singer/songwriter Christopher Prim specializes in ‘acoustic wisdom’: a blend of wood and steel, flesh and bone, and as much heartfelt mischief as songs can hold. After almost 20 years writing and playing, with 2 CDs under his belt, Prim is coming of age. Influenced by players like Stephen Stills, Bruce Cockburn, Dan Bern and Greg Tamblyn, currently performing across the US West Coast, his song ‘Little Four Cylinder’ aired on NPR’s ‘Cartalk’ in 2005, and his 2009 CD release ‘Clean House’, available at www.cdbaby.com/prim2 has received airplay in the all-powerful commercial market known and feared as ‘The Netherlands’.

‘Although firmly based in the folk tradition, Prim plays the guitar, sings and writes in a style all his own. With lyrics that twist and turn between the serious, the silly, the romantic and the sublime, Prim delivers a one-of-a-kind musical and literary experience. Combining biting social commentary and a devilish sense of humor, Christopher Prim makes for not only an enjoyable evening of entertainment, but a thought provoking one as well.’ –Paul Boerger
