Chris Floyd on working with the 5th Beach Boy, Nashville, and current trends in Music.

It’s a beautiful sunrise in a Kansas City suburb and Chris Floyd is doing what he loves and does best, working on music in his studio. He advises, “Without loving the process, I would have given up long ago.” In fact, he may be one of Kansas City’s best kept secrets.

Chris is no Bruno Mars or Justin Bieber but he has endurance and skill after working in and around the music business for 20+ years. In the late 80′s he spent two years in the studio with Dave “Hard Drive” Pensado. (The Black Eyed Peas, Elton John, Jamiroquai, etc.) Took on so many live projects in the 90′s it would make Willie Nelson exhausted:) Made a record with producer Scott Mathews “The Fifth Beachboy” at Tiki Town – San Francisco in 2000. And spent 4 years in Nashville co-writing, recording, and learning more about the craft of writing.

“At a certain point I realized I was getting more done online than beating the bushes and my wife was still in Kansas City (thank God for Southwest), so I decided to move back to the midwest and work from Cyberspace.”

If you go to iTunes, Amazon.Com, Spotify, etc. you will find multiple releases from Chris Floyd. It’s all for the love of the game. (for fans of Wilco, Jon Brion, and Josh Ritter) – Johnny Wayne Brando
