THE CHRIS WEAVER BAND RELEASES FIRST SINGLE “RAISE THE DEAD” FROM SOPHOMORE ALBUM
“There is no other band on the market that sounds quite like this. They blend contemporary country with classic sounding R&B in an effortless manner.”
– BILLBOARD “TOP 10 ARTISTS TO WATCH 2013”
The CHRIS WEAVER BAND has released their first single RAISE THE DEAD from their dynamic sophomore album, AMERICAN DREAMER due out November 5th. Coming off the critical success of their debut record STANDING IN LINE, the new music showcases Weaver’s soulful, gritty passion.
Recorded in Nashville, Weaver teamed up with former Jimmy Buffett and Glenn Frey guitarist and legendary producer, Josh Leo (Alabama, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Bad Company, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Timothy B. Schmit) on American Dreamer. Notable contributors include Jack Pearson on slide guitar, Kim Carnes on background vocals, Tony Harrell on keyboards, Steve Mackey on bass and Tom Bukavac on guitar.
“Weaver is an out-and-out singer – with a Capital “S.” Chuck Dauphin, Billboard Magazine
“Weaver is star quality-and deserves to be heard” Dave Wheaton, KEAN Radio, Abilene, TX
“One the best albums released this year” – John Shelton Ivanny
The Jackson Music Examiner has described STANDING IN LINE as “music that feels like an old friend you’d take on a long road trip”.
Chris Weaver isn’t your typical singer/songwriter. Weaver has a unique, fresh sound that fringes on country, but has a whole lot of soul, rock and blues infused into each energy-filled song. When you take a listen to the Chris Weaver Band’s CD, ‘Standing In Line’, you’ll know what I mean from the very start.

Every now and then, you hear something that just knocks you out. Listening to this album is one of those instances. Simply put, Chris Weaver is a star in the making, though I have to admit it took me a few listens to “get it.” He’s that different.
