I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Chris Antonik News & Summer Schedule

Chris Antonik News & Summer Schedule
It has been a busy year for Maple Blues Award-nominated guitarist/singer Chris Antonik. In February 2012, Chris began work on his highly-anticipated second album, which will feature guest appearances by Grammy award-winning vocalist Mike Mattison (The Derek Trucks Band, The Tedeschi-Trucks Band), Maple Blues award-winner Shakura S'Aida, Juno-award winner Steve Marriner (MonkeyJunk) and more. British blues guitarist Ben Fisher and New York City songsmith Paul Olsen (Scrapomatic) also feature as co-writers. Look for the album in early 2013!
This past March, Chris was one of the featured artists at the DAWG FM/Toronto Blues Society showcase for Canadian Music Week, and gave a live-to-air performance and interview on New York City's “Sounds of Blue” radio show.
This summer, Chris and the band will be making appearances at blues festivals across Canada, including Manitoba’s Great Woods Music Festival, and the Sherblues and Folk Festival in Sherbrooke, Quebec.
In other cool news, Antonik's southern blues-rock song 'Reap What You Sow', from his first album, has just been picked up by the television show "Road Trip Nation" on PBS. The song will be featured on an episode this coming fall.
