Since he picked up the guitar and taught himself how to play at the age of 14, his musical roots have included personal lessons from artists like Michael Hedges, Gregg Allman, Wayne Henderson and Garth Webber, yet his tone, chord structure, feel, searing solos and sense of melody remain truly his own.
At the age of 16, Christopher Robin started writing all of his own music and now draws from his own catalog of 200 plus songs. ”All of my songs are true stories – I’ve had residency in seven different states – and there’s been a lot of stories. They’re about all the things I’ve done, from sailing on tall ships to being a cowboy in Colorado , to playing for Kings, Queens , Princes and Princesses in Europe, or the Hells Angels in California, to your typical love-on-the-rocks kind of thing.”
At the age of 18, he studied with independent luthier Brad Nickerson, building his own acoustic guitar to perform upon. After completing his guitar in 1993 he moved to San Francisco to start his career as a performing singer/songwriter. Working side jobs as a guitar tech for the Jefferson Starship, and the Gregg Allman Band.
Christopher Robin has accomplished what every musician sets out to do; he has developed a unique, individual voice, a music undeniably his own, a sound that is recognizable from the first note.
Christopher has opened for, shared the stage or recorded with a long list of artists including Joe Higgs, Clarence Clemmons, Gregg Allman, Robert Cray, Lee Sklar, Ray Brinker, The Marshall Tucker Band, Shooter Jennings, Jackie Pearson, Garth Webber, Reggie Young, Del McCoury, Jimmi Hall, Peter Yarrow, Eddy “The Chief” Clearwater, Paul Thorn, Berry Oakley Jr., Loren Rowan, Bee Spears, Richie Albright, Mark Matejka, Big and Rich, Don Was, Tony Joe White, and Steve Cropper among others.
