International performer comes to Vashon
Singer-songwriter, composer and musician Chris Brokaw is no stranger to the world of rock fame, having recorded and toured to international acclaim since 1990. Brokaw will bring his music as a solo artist to the Blue Heron for a performance at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
As a guitarist, Brokaw and his first New York-based rock band Codeine lit up the music scene back in 1990. Brokaw went on to play drums with the Boston-based band Come, tour with Nirvana, accompany Johnny Depp on a tribute album to Jack Kerouac, release four albums and build a solo career performing 100 concerts annually in countries around the globe.
Primarily self-taught, Brokaw began writing music and performing when he was 12, having been exposed to cutting-edge rock by his jazz-drummer father. According to a press release, Brokaw believes music can access powerful emotions, and he works to create a broad spectrum of inspiring, intimate and surprising music.
