Chris Ayer is a Los Angeles-based artist with a rawness of performance and poetic lyricism that combine to make something at once urgent and timeless. With sharp pop sensibility, and a strong nod to the singer-songwriter tradition, Chris defies genres, incorporating Pop, Folk, Soul, and Americana elements seamlessly into his music.
Born in California, and raised in Virginia, Chris has built a reputation for uplifting and emotive solo shows in New York’s lower east side, as well as inspiring collaborations with musician friends also coming up in the New York music scene – especially his close friend and longtime tour mate Matt Simons (“Catch & Release”, “With You”). Chris has played over 1000 shows throughout America and Europe the past few years, and self-released his most recent album The Noise, which he coproduced with Grammy-winning producer Will Hensley.
Chris recently capped off a 21 date national tour in 2017 of the United States with a one-off performance in Amsterdam in front of 5500 screaming fans at AFAS Live supporting Matt Simons (‘Catch & Release’, ‘With You’). Chris was also a featured performer at the 2017 PinkPop Festival in The Netherlands, where he shared a bill with the likes of Green Day, Martin Garrix, and Kings of Leon.
Ayer’s last three singles, ’Stay Another Night,’ ’On the Blvd,’ and ‘Heavy’ have a combined total of over 3.5 million streams on Spotify. Stay Another Night’ landed in the Spotify Viral 50 in Denmark and Holland, it was featured on Spotify’s Bae Playlist, and it hovered on Hype Machine’s Twitter Music Chart for a couple weeks. In March of 2018, Ayer received the Independent Music Award for Best Adult Contemporary Song for his song ‘Heavy.
