Performer Spotlight

 

Name:Chris Antonik
Description:In 2010 Toronto-based blues guitarist, singer and songwriter Chris Antonik arrived onto the National and International blues scene with his self-titled debut album which received widespread critical acclaim, placed in the Roots Music Report Top 100 charts for over a year, and garnered Antonik a nomination for Best New Artist of the Year at Canada’s national Maple Blues Awards. In 2010, in its year-end review, British Columbia’s Blues Underground Network deemed Chris ‘The Future of the Blues.’ After extensive touring and major blues festival appearances in Canada in 2011 and 2012, Chris returned with his highly anticipated and critically-acclaimed follow-up Better For You in March 2013. With Antonik on the majority of lead vocals, guest vocalists on Better For You include: two-time Grammy award-winner Mike Mattison (The Derek Trucks Band, The Tedeschi-Trucks Band) and American Blues Music award-nominee Shakura S’Aida. Other guest artists include blues Juno-winners Steve Marriner.
