Here is the voice you will remember… join this passionate
troubadour as he takes you on a unique journey. Experience his
ability to connect with people through song in a way that is deep
and enduring… transforming a simple tune into a celebration…
touching all who are fortunate enough to be a part of
Christopher Westfall's musical tapestry.

Born in Norristown, Pennsylvania in 1971, Chris realized a
connection to acoustic music when he was just four years old.
Performing since the age of 12, Chris later began formal voice
training with Gary Farquhar of the Julliard School and Julia Price
of Rutgers University. Although a self-taught accomplished pianist
with the ability to read and compose music, Chris received formal
guitar training from David Gladkowski.

In concert, Chris' style finds a balance of 'acoustic folk'. The clear tenor voice moves gently from familiar folk tunes to original interpretations of artists such as James Taylor and John Denver, and then to his own heartfelt compositions. What a wonderful message he shares with us in his introspective "I'm Coming Home" and his lyrical celebration of the holiday season with "Know It's Christmas". Hearing Chris in a live performance for the first time, people find themselves touched by his compassion. He encourages the audience to sing along…and by doing so, strangers become friends, brought together by the spirit of the music. With every song, Chris possesses the magical ability to hold the audience in his gentle grasp…making each listener feel he sings only for them, which, in truth, he does.

In 1998, Chris released a solo album entitled "Kindred
Spirits". In addition to "Give Yourself to Love" by
Kate Wolf and "Boy From the Country" by
Michael Murphy, the recording featured the
self-penned "No Difference". Future plans include a
CD of original music and a release of holiday tunes,
a personal favorite of his. Writing and performing his
own songs has given Chris a true sense of expression…
the ability to share his music as well as himself. With
compelling lyrics and melodies that both comfort and
inspire the listener, audiences have responded to his
original work with great enthusiasm. These pieces often
receive the strongest reception during Chris' concerts.

"And so my fire continues to burn with a
desire…I'm here to help and heal and learn."

Every once in a great while, an artist crafts a moment that will not fade away but resonates year after year, song after song…striking a chord deep within. Christopher Westfall is a minstrel for our time. With a voice of energy and conviction, he brings us on a journey…like the soaring eagle's flight, full of spirit and emotion…and we are forever changed.

"I wish it would last forever, but as long as I am able to sit with a guitar on my lap, not even to sing to people, but just to sing to myself, then I'll be alright."
