Mexican Composer and Lyricist, Chris has created contemporary beloved tunes and
musical theatre scores with a unique voice as a composer, capturing a wide range of
musical genres and powerfully-catchy melodies.
Known for his work on Stage music, from Musical Theatre to Cabaret, passing
through circus shows, concerts, and dance acts. Also, he has developed scores for non-
musical plays and cinematic projects. Next to that, he’s working on an Indie-pop solo
project releasing a collection of songs that talk about his own life and experiences from
2018 till mid-2019.
He began his music studies at the age of six. Started his early years singing in his school’s choir and almost immediately started to write his firsts and very very very basic arrangements for the songs they used to sing there. At the age of seven started to take piano lessons and classical music training, with that, he began to develop his composer skills.
Teenage-hood came and with that also the rock. Christopher expended most of his high-school and college years in the rock, punk, and emo scene, writing and singing music for his band with whom he recorded a couple of EP’s and a full-length album.
After that he left Mexico a couple of years and moved to Vancouver, Canada; where he studied Art Direction and started getting deep into musical production, gaining most of his Home-Studio Skills.
At his return to Mexico, he started working with Musical Theatre Professionals, that gave him the opportunity to musical-direct several amateur shows, but his insistent desire to write his own musical never abandoned him and lead into the Cabaret world, where since 2012 he has been writing music for many shows such as: ‘Los Poblanos también lloran’, ‘Lola La Extra-Grande’ and ‘Iguanas Ranas’ with the Mexican Cabaret Companies “Talavera Cabaret” and “Imprudentes Teatro”, getting him to perform in the International Cabaret Festival, in very important Latin-American Venues such as “El Vicio”.
He wrote his First Musical ‘Capitan Calzon’ in 2017 along with his writing partner and fiancé Paloma M. Bretón (Bookwriter/actress) having its first workshop in Puebla City, Mexico with four performances acting as previews in the ‘Puebla’s City Theater’, this show is nowadays in a re-writing process by its authors. After that, Christopher and his collaborator have written several shows for the Franchise “Africam Safari” one of Latin-America’s most important Safari Zoo Parks, premiering musical shows like ‘Làn’, ‘Huesos’ and ‘Vida’, each with around 60 performances in the Xmas period.
In 2020 Christopher and Paloma have been working simultaneously in 3 Original Musicals: ‘Por Si Me Olvido’ a musical about Alzheimer, with stars: Anahí Allué (Chicago, Mamma Mia, Wicked, Billy Elliot) and Fede Di Lorenzo (Les Miz, Beauty and The Beast, Next to Normal); ‘El Lago’, a Contemporary-Burlesque Adaptation of “The Swan Lake Ballet”; and ‘Y Procura Verte Feliz’, an LGBTTTIQ+ Musical which is set to begin previews in Oct 2021.
He has also had the opportunity to work professionally as a musical director and conductor for shows as ‘We will Rock you’, ‘Hairspray’, ‘Newsies’, and ‘Les Miserables’ in Mexico. Also, he has collaborated with Mexican composer Jaime Lozano as a copyist in few songs of his musical “Savage”.
Aside from that, he’s been working on his Indie-Pop Solo project, where he has written a Song Cycle called ‘conversacionesdeunamenteausente’ that are gonna be released as singles on all digital platforms through 2020 and 2021. The first single ‘Tu Película – (Tú) Película” is now available everywhere.
