Chris Laterzo- West Coast Sound2

Blending varying degrees of folk, rock, and alt-country, Chris Laterzo is an artist who continues to create a unique style of song best described as American cowboy-rock. The spirit of the open road, the imagery of boundless landscapes and weathered travelers, the loping rhythms- it’s all there in his latest full-length, West Coast Sound.

Drawn at an early age to the addictive tunes of Cat Stevens and Elton John, and later to the rawer elements of Creedence, Neil Young, Willie Nelson, and Springsteen, Chris’ fuzzed out guitar tones and crack band bring to mind an updated Crazy Horse.  But his astute lyrics and melodic sensibility are very much his own.
