    Chris Batson Signs to Nettwerk - Check out his music!

    New Artist Alert time!

    Nettwerk Music Group has signed the multi-talented producer and alternative R&B/soul artist Chris Batson to its worldwide label roster. Congrats to both the artist and the label.

    At only 22-years of age, Los Angeles-based Batson writes the most poignant and deeply personal lyrics, matched with a vocal soulfulness beyond his years.

    Drawing from relationships with friends and partners and his own inner conflicts, Batson pens heart-wrenching stories from his dark and unpredictable life experiences, thoughts and emotions. With that rare ability for provocative lyricism, Batson masterfully pairs his words with melodic hooks and instrumentals that unveil an authenticity and talent that are not just refreshing, but also relevant.

    Growing up in Florida before moving to Los Angeles, Batson pulls from a diverse list of influences –Donny Hathaway, Marvin Gaye, Nas, Jay-Z, Kings of Leon and Coldplay, amongst others. Check his tunes out on his Soundcloud account.
