Singer-songwriter Kris Thomas, a native of Memphis, TN, has a voice as smooth as silk. With his charming and charismatic personality and a vision for success Kris is destined for greatness. Being engulfed in the rich sounds of blues, jazz, soul and gospel that Memphis has to offer and coming from a musical family, Kris knew at an early age he had a calling. Singing in the church choir where his father was the pastor, Kris found this calling and that was to sing. Performing publicly for the first time at the age of 14, Kris was forced to sing as a form of punishment for laughing at the other kids during choir rehearsal. Once he opened his mouth his voice resonated throughout the church, and this was the first time his family realized that Kris had a true gift. Wanting to hone his talent, Kris joined the Young Actors Guild where he gained valuable experience in stage performance and experimented in some acting. The following year he joined Stax Music Academy where he was a member and lead vocalist of StreetCorner Harmonies. StreetCorner Harmonies performed at various prestigious events throughout Memphis and sometimes were graced with the presence of former Stax artists Isaac Hayes and Mavis Staples. Kris loved being surrounded by such influential musical talents.
