Over the past decade, award winning singer-songwriter Chris Picco has established himself as one of Atlantic Canada’s most dynamic and diverse musicians both as a solo artist and as front man for St. John’s based rockers, The Long Distance Runners. The late great Newfoundland songwriter Ron Hynes has called him “one of the great new songwriters to come out of Atlantic Canada.”
Since 2004 Chris has recorded and released six critically acclaimed records. His most recent LDR record received several ECMA, Juno and MusicNL nominations in 2016/17. Chris’ solo record The Beach (2013) earned him a MusicNL Male Artist Of The Year Award. He has worked as both a session musician and producer and has shared the stage with artists ranging from Wintersleep, Said the Whale, Mother Mother and The Wooden Sky to Jim Cuddy, Bob Snider, Ron Sexsmith, Kyp Harness, and Ron Hynes.
Currently, Chris is keeping busy songwriting, producing, performing and preparing for the upcoming recording of his latest solo album due for release in Fall 2019 .
