Chris Duarte Group

Austin-based guitarist, songwriter, and singer Chris Duarte (born February 16, 1963, San Antonio, Texas, USA) is such a promising young upstart in the world of modern blues that he's already being compared with the late Stevie Ray Vaughan. It's heady stuff for the musician, who plays a rhythmic style of Texas blues-rock that is at times reminiscent of Vaughan's sound, and at other times reminiscent of Johnny Winter. The truth is, Duarte has his own sound that draws on elements of jazz, blues, and rock & roll.
