Chris Burns

key, g, *1966
Musician of Rock, Jazz and Electronic

Born in Montreal in 1966, Chris Burns grew up a couple of hundred yards away from runway #9 of the Dorval airport; establishing the notion that window rattling screams of a jumbo jet could be a lullaby. Aged 12, unable to afford an electric guitar, he was forced to build one out of an old Cheerios box and discarded human hair he found behind the local barbershop. This, clearly, did not work but it did strike up the sympathy of legendary guitar man Blind Idiot McGhee, with whom Burns took up a three year apprenticeship ending when McGhee passed on his Stratocaster to Burns on his death bed. Since then, Burns has been struggling to unlearn everything Blind Idiot taught him and has been creating and refining his own unique brand of guitar playing, a style he has labeled “brain damaged.”
