"Chris Heider's music hearkens back

to a time when all you needed was

an acoustic guitar, a voice, and a message.

A breath of fresh air indeed."​

Randy Villars, Recording artist, Saxophonist, Pianist, Composer, Arranger, Producer, Author, Educator, Dayton, OH


I have years of experience as a

session player and producer.  Chris's songs

are intelligent, inspirational, musically

logical, and worthwhile. His voice is unique

and emotive, a proper singer in

the folksy rock niche in which

he writes and sings.

At The New England Folk Festival in July, 2013, Nick Noble (pictured below), the popular host of "The Folk Revival" a 90.3 WICN radio program  emanating from Worcester, Ma, was in the audience and heard me sing my original song, "Cocaine Crazy," a satirical spoof about life in the USA in the 1960s. A number of folks in the audience of about 200 people gave me a standing ovation.  Nick asked me to record the song and send him a copy. He played it on his radio program on August 12, 2013.
