Since first picking up a guitar at the age of nine, Velan’s journey to understand how he and the world itself operates has taken him down two distinct paths: law and music. In his early 20s, Velan was determined to make sense of humanity’s struggles through a career in law, only to realize – after collaborating on the Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars’ documentary – that he could make as great an impact through music by its simple yet profound ability to connect people.
“With four albums and a lot of miles travelled now under my belt, I feel like I’ve arrived at a place where I better understand who I am as an artist and a songwriter. It’s a foothold that I’ve worked hard to find”. Chris Velan unites unforgettable rhythms and melodies with unhindered sentiment and subtle delivery
“Chris Velan stole the show with his clear, personable and emotionally charged voice”. Joel Balsam Co host Currently Concordia
