Chris Arellano’s deeply personal Americana weaves together the Norteno music of his Northern New Mexico upbringing with Alternative Country and Blues influences-for a signature style that he calls Nuevo Americana. Fused with song and story, Spanish and English, his transcendent lyrics move listeners with emotion and passion.
Chris’ ability to play multiple stringed instruments kept him busy as a Nashville session musician and Producer. In 1996 Chris and drummer Kenny Cox of Drifters Wind, auditioned and ended up touring with Steve Forberts Warner Bros. release of Rocking Horse Head Tour. Playing on Premier stages across the country and appearing on television in New York City.
Chris continues taking steps on this new portion of his journey, sharing the live version of his self titled CD, and the new CD (Nuevo Americana) with Howlin Dog Records touring venues throughout the western parts of the US. Chris also continues to write music that speaks to him and stories from along the way.
