A life re-imagined in music.

"DON'T KILL ME"

Chris Sunfield continues to hop between genres with his third single and video Don’t Kill Me, a raw and gritty rocker with wonky side turns and edgy, provocative lyrics. Musically, we’re talking old school guitars plugged into amps. Cranked up noise. Basic, but more clever and riffy than your average thrash outing. There are schizophrenic elements of pop punk, power pop, and…swing (really?). Lyrically – can we go there? It’s about an older musician with a younger, bratty partner whose (ahem) energy may be the death of him – if he’s lucky. Chris sings, plays all guitars, and did all arrangements. Eliza Beth is on backing vocals and Juno-nominated Brent Bodrug produced. Style wise, Chris has been all over the map with his first three singles. But he’s just having fun with classic pop idioms before releasing his first EP later this year, which will show a more baroque and symphonic direction.

A life re-imagined in music.

Chris Sunfield is relatively new to the music scene after quietly writing songs in obscurity for many years. While his singles tend to explore classic pop idioms, his future EP’s will show more baroque and symphonic stylings. Chris writes and arranges all songs and plays all guitars. Lyrically, his releases will increasingly explore existential issues with themes of personal re-awakening and authenticity. This reflects Chris having spent much of his life doing other things before finally making good on his music later in life. Chris has more singles and an EP planned for 2021.
