"If this qualifies as modern pop, I'm all for it." - Indie Shuffle
Chris Meid, originally from Luxembourg, is an artist with a truly diverse musical background. Having come from a more classical upbringing Chris has made a name for himself remixing a wide-array of different artists (including Jose Gonzalez, The Weeknd and Ellie Goulding) to much critical acclaim. Whilst making a name for himself collaborating and remixing, writing and performing his own material has always been the dream and finally, having been recently signed to Warner Music, this has become a reality with the release of his debut single Red River.
Recruiting the talented Swedish/American Tyler Sjöström on vocals and 16-year old Dutch DJ/Producer sensation Martin Wagler, Red River has a distinctly international flavour. Tyler’s vocals with their distinctly country-music sound give a sense of the distance and openness of the Mid-West while Chris’s writing and Martin’s influence grounds the track in a style akin to great European Pop artists like Swedish House Mafia and Avicii.
Receiving praise from the likes of Earmilk, Music Ninja and BBC Radio 1, this is just the beginning as we will definitely be seeing a lot more of him towards the end of this year and into 2016.
Chris Meid’s debut single Red River is out now via Warner Music.
