A veteran of the indie music scene, San Diego-based singer-songwriter Christopher Cash combines the defiant character of post-punk, alternative favorites like the Psychedelic Furs and Wall of Voodoo with the sparkle and polish of today’s Euro-pop giants like Interpol and Snow Patrol. The California native has been in countless bands since the '80s, including the Privates, Gadflies, the Intelligence, and Wobblewire.
Now with producer and San Diego favorite Jeff Berkley, Cash has just released his second album, Invisible. Recorded with his regular performing band, the result is a sparkling, yet rootsy blend of guitars and classic keyboards providing the foundation for some great stories of metaphorical transparency reminiscent of bands like Counting Crows and Tom Petty. In 2005, Cash’s earlier solo album, Hollywood Mirage, impressed critics: “Hollywood Mirage skillfully blends expert storytelling, crisp production, and the illusive soul of this famous city to form a rich work of art.”
The four-piece Christopher Cash Band is a tight, fun-loving band of veteran Southern California players who make their songs’ tales come alive. Christopher Cash also thrives playing in a solo coffeehouse setting where fans can really appreciate the depth of emotion and humanity possible with just a guitar and a story.
