CHRIS WAIT is a blogger, writer, artist and singer/songwriter who composes original material in English and Afrikaans. He does not adhere to any specific style or genre, but rather creates his music organically from whatever happens to inspire him at the time. Emphasis is placed on writing meaningful lyrics and creative expression. There are no rules or boundaries. For some of his songs he also creates his own backtracks from scratch utilizing a variety of software. 

 'AFRIKAANS is my moedertaal. Ek het my eerste woordmusiek CD genaamd VISSER in 2002 opgeneem in Sunset Recording Studios net buite Stellenbosch.'

CHRIS WAIT is 'n blogger, skrywer, kunstenaar en sanger en liedjieskrywer. Sy musiek kan nie volgens enige spesifieke genre gekategoriseer word nie. Hy skep organies an laat toe dat inspirasie in die oomblik sy kreatiewe uitdrukking lei. Hy plaas veral  klem op lirieke en die gevoelswaarde van sy skeppinge. Chris skryf in beide Engels en Afrikaans en vir sommige van sy liedjies en voorlesings skep hy unieke klankbane deur gebruik te maak van 'n kombinasie van sagteware op se rekenaar.

 VISSER

Woordmusiek CD opgeneem in 2002 in Sunset Recording Studios, Stellenbosch. (Dit was my eerste keer in 'n studio en ek het pas 'n kitaar uitgefigure, sedertdien kan ek darem al bietjie beter sing en speel en ek het die progressie gemaak van woordmusiek komponeer na sanger en liedjieskrywer).  Riaan Nieuwenhuis en Rob Bolton was meestal verantwoordelik vir die instrumentasie. Woorde, stem, bekfluitjie en kitaar - Chris Wait, Baskitaar - Rob Bolton, Dromme en Klavier, (en nog 'n paar ander goed) - Riaan Nieuwenhuis.

 

LATEST ENGLISH RELEASE:

'Writing songs is just one of those things I do constantly. I play the guitar, do vocals and combine this with harmonica on some songs. A few of the recordings on this page were done in semi-professional studios with other musicians, but often I will record a new song in one take with whatever is at hand. When I play live I also like to intersperse the set with  readings of original prose and poetry (when the space and time allows for it).'

ACCUSING EYES

This is a really simple and straightforward and basic recording done on my GoPro not long after I wrote the song, (keeping it real)... 

STYLE/GENRE "I do not subscribe to any particular style or genre. If I had to describe my sound I suppose you could call it 'alternative folk'."

AFRIKAANS: Meer oorspronklike liedjies in Afrikaans...

CALVINIA IS NIE KALIFORNIË NIE

Ek is ook 'n reisblogger en ek blog orals waar ek gaan. Hierdie liedjie is opgeneem toe ek op een van my reise was in Calvinia.
