Chris Renzema is a dynamic writer and performer, whose combination of accessible, if not a bit disheveled charm, a love for storytelling, and poignant lyricism, can transform an evening concert into a conversation. Growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Chris learned to play and sing in churches, while ingesting a steady diet of early 70’s Folk, Punk Rock, and Wilco. His faith and love for music becoming inseparably interwoven, his personal writing plays out like heartfelt, jagged prayers.
Just as comfortable playing in a living room as he does a theatre, his honest, vulnerable lyrics both encourage and challenge listeners. His song "You're the Only One" is sung in churches across the country.
