Chris Payton

Chris was captured by music when he first picked up the guitar at age four. By applying himself and absorbing as much as possible from his influencers, he soon had a reputation for processing talent beyond his years. He began playing professionally in his early teens. By age 21, he established himself as one of America’s youngest, most prominent guitarists.

Chris’ professional experience spans several genres, including R&B, gospel, soul, hip hop, pop, alternative, jazz and blues. He has supported major acts including Robin Thicke, Ludacris, Kendrick Lamar, The Soul Seekers, Faith Evans and T.I. He’s made multiple on-air musical appearances on shows such as Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Grammys, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show and more, and he is a highly sought-after session musician and composer.
