Musician Spotlight: Christopher Brown

Nov 23, 2020

Christopher Brown is a guitarist, and singer from central Pennsylvania. His journey with music began 12 years ago after dropping out of college at Penn State University. As he stepped into learning about his own voice, and playing music that moved his own spirit, he became more and more in touch with his authentic self. With that, came the desire to share his gifts with as many people as possible!

Christopher Brown has been a street musician, playing in towns and cities across the country for almost 8 years.  He’s also played in music venues in NYC, Boston, Pittsburgh, Eugene OR, Seattle, San Francisco, and many other places.  It’s taken a long time to get to this point, throwing himself into music completely, and having the faith that he can build it into a life.  Early on there were many periods of self-doubt where he walked away from music almost entirely.  During those periods of time he also dealt with an intense personal struggle with severe depression and anxiety.  However, it was music that ultimately helped him get back on his feet, no matter how difficult and scary the path was. It’s Christopher Brown’s aim through his journey with music to meet and interact with as many people as possible who too are seeking connection, love, authenticity, and a safe place to share their story, their gifts, and their human experience.

You can check out Christopher’s music through Soundcloud, Spotify, or Youtube.

Musician Spotlight: Thor Harris

On average, professional musicians spend over 90% of their time performing live on the road, away from personal and medical support systems. Injuries can arise at any moment from the repetitive intensity of playing instruments and from unexpected accidents. With this in mind, we are a unique nonprofit – in design, scope, and breadth – […]
