Slide guitarist Chris Haugen is celebrated for his innovative roots playing, intuitive feel, and warm soulful tone. The San Francisco Chronicle says “Haunting and otherworldly, like a time capsule from a lost kingdom. Perhaps Atlantis.” With over 20 years as a touring and recording artist, Chris has collaborated with influential artists including Ken Kesey, Ted Templeman, and Sean Penn. Chris is a natural musician, most at home with an instrument in hand. His music expresses a heart-felt curiosity that draws upon his love of the ocean and yoga practice, and in the fall he will release a title written specifically for use with yoga. When not playing music, you can find Chris surfing the cold, majestic waves in Northern California.
