Chris Duarte could be described in a number of different ways, but to keep it simple: he's one hell of a guitarist. Keeping an open mind, Chris reflects his style and music in a very authentic way citing John Coltrane and John McLaughlin as major influences as his blues roots. He is a must-see live, performing everything with his own "Chris Duarte" approach. Duarte was first inspired by music at age 8 after seeing Fiddler On The Roof on television. Duarte began playing his brother's guitar, and got his first electric guitar at the age of 14 and played with bands in San Antonio.
