Native New Yorker, long time studio musician and session guitarist Chris Juergensen is in constant demand as a sideman, front man and clinician.
He has played sold out venues as intimate as the world famous Blue Note and as large as the Long Beach Auditorium.
After teaching guitar for six years at the prestigious Musicians Institute in Los Angeles along side with Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big, Racer X), Scott Henderson and Joe Diorio, Chris left the states to become the Director of Education at Tokyo School of Music in Japan where he resided for fifteen years.
He currently divides his time between Tokyo and Los Angeles where he continues to write, record, play and teach.
His first solo CD, "Prospects" was critically acclaimed worldwide and his second release,"Big Bad Sun" painted a completely new portrait of him showcasing him as a singer as well as guitarist. The opening song "Sweet Melissa" was used by Australian filmmaker Sean King in his short film "Regrets." His latest CD, "Strange Phenomena" was released in early 2008.
