Chris Bullock developed a desire to play music from early piano lessons, long-haired garage bands, and late night music on public radio. He eventually found his way to the saxophone. In 2009, Chris relocated to NYC where he has since established the beginnings of a fruitful professional career as a musician. He has had the opportunity to perform all around the world, including many of the major jazz and music festivals including North Sea Jazz Fest, Montreaux Jazz Festival, Newport Jazz Festival, Shanghai Jazz Fest, London Jazz Fest, etc.
Chris devotes a large amount of his time performing, recording, and touring with the band Snarky Puppy. With this band, he won two Grammy Awards in 2014 and 2016.
Apart from playing the saxophone, flute, and clarinet, Chris has begun to explore making hip hop and electronic music with the MPC. This has led to him DJ'ing as well. His DJ name is DJ Boomtown. He has hosted nights of music in the US, Canada, and the UK as a DJ.
The sound of Chris Bullock quite dark and very very powerful, with a really fat lower end ! The mouthpiece we created for Chris gives him the possibility to deploy easily this timbre in all the registers of the tenor.
