Tin Silver serves up solos hot and often, never at the expense of the band's diverse, smart songwriting. Listen to Tin Silver and you will hear the beer halls and Baptist churches of West Texas, sun-drenched California, and a little New York thump. You'll hear soaring country soul, hill blues stomp boogie, and fiddle-centric folk music. You'll hear a quartet with a deep understanding of roots music and the hard-won musical chops to prove it.
The band writes collaboratively, with guitar/banjo/dobro player Alan Bowen bringing the bulk of the raw material, as well as the fluent bluegrass licks and blues solos he learned over years of dedicated study. Drummer Matthew Higgins, one half of Tin Silver's Texas contingent, contributes the tight, bright, intricate groove he developed while cutting his teeth on Bob Wills country-swing standards. Paired with Paul Prato's bottom filled electric and upright bass sound and punk-bred attack, Tin Silver's rhythm section has uncommon fire and dynamic range. Tricia Rojas, the band's other Lonestar State ex-pat, brings sweet violin and the aching, rafter-rattling vocals she developed singing in church choirs during her childhood.
Chris Baron's music is a creative blend of sky-high melodies and powerhouse acoustic energy. His unique style draws you in and shakes your hand. He grew up in Eugene, and recorded his first album there at age 17 in 1999.
Since then, he has co-produced twenty-six studio projects, with ten different band lineups. His 2018 solo album is being produced at Ninkasi Studios.
He is a huge sports fan, and enjoys long romantic walks to the fridge. His favorite bands at the moment are The Avett Brothers, and Floater. Chris has lived in Portland since 2005.
