DCR013: Christopher Coleslaw "Buffaloma, USA"

Chris is a Wisconsin native currently residing in Chicago, but for a period of time Chris called the Quad Cities his home. Towards the end of his stay in the QC, Chris was a part of the Sound and Vision Collective in Moline, Il. While there he honed his craft of folk music, creating his own voice while calling on wisdom from the greats. He'll heal your troubled soul with the sweet sounds of his gravelly voiced lullabies. This tape is a collection of songs he recorded during his time at Sound and Vision.

Check out this video of Chris performing with Melinda Menner at Tommy's Open Mic in Moline, IL.
