Chris Vibberts ~ Music for Film
Chris Vibberts can compose music for your film, TV, or multimedia project using a variety of acoustic, electronic, modern, and ethnic instruments, recorded with both digital and analog technologies. His music has been featured in a number of award-winning full length, short, and documentary films.

Chris grew up in New England and began learning Black Sabbath guitar riffs at the age of 13. He quickly decided to make music his life path and went to Berklee College of Music out of high school. He gigged in smoky nightclubs from the time he was 15 and soon developed the skill of staying up late and sleeping until noon that every musician needs. After college, Chris spent a year writing and recording for 60's pop icon Gene Pitney and his son Todd Pitney. After touring the country playing wherever he could-coffee houses, clubs, beaches, folk festivals, on Bourbon Street- for the good part of a year, he ended up in Northern California where he lives today.

While living in the San Francisco Bay Area, Chris has written, recorded, and performed with a number of rock, funk, country, and experimental bands including High Horse, The Infamous They, and Allison McLeod, as well as his own alt rock group Chris Vibberts Affair. Chris performed on and produced Rose Harting's stunning CD, "Fly". He studied Sitar for several years with Ali Akbar Khan protege Peter Van Gelder. He currently performs and records with Rose Logue, Arann Harris and the Farm Band, and Ragas to Riches. Over the years, Chris has shared the stage with Willie Nelson, Doobie Brothers, Johnathan Richmond, Billy C. Farlow, Little Feat, .38 Special, the Outlaws, Limpopo, David Grisman, and Sam Bush, amongst hundreds of others.

In recent years, Chris has been involved in the world of film scoring. His first score was for Trick Knee Productions' award-winning entry into the 48-Hour Film Project called "Like Lightning". Since then, he has scored a variety of award-winning full length, short, and documentary films.
