Singer/songwriter/guitarist CHRIS ROBERTS is a man of many hats, literally and figuratively. Following the release and radio success of his debut single and music video “Remember That It’s Me” earlier this year, the self-described “rock ‘n’ roll/hippie/country” artist is returning with another impassioned soulful tune. “Hate When You’re Gone” is out now; listen here.
“‘Hate When You’re Gone’ is a song about how people who we love, when they’re not with us anymore, how big of an impact that can have on our lives,” CHRIS shares. “Really it is about some of the special people I’ve had to leave behind and some who have had to leave me. It’s just that way I guess…sort of a heartfelt one here.”
It wasn’t always clear that music was in the cards for the Austin native now based in Aspen, CO. “I never tried to become a musician,” he explains. “I never thought I would play music. I never desired to play music. It’s just that music kept falling into me and out of me until I had no choice.”
