About Chris Veber
Chris Veber lives on the beautiful South Sea Islands of Denmark, namely Lolland-Falster. Chris’ passion for music traces back to his younger years, where he and his parents spent the summers by their caravan on the campsite of Western Camp. Spending each summer on a campsite known for country-inspired performances and great fellowship between the campers Chris’ love for country music beame defined at an early age and established a solid foundation for his authenticity. It all started when Chris was brought on stage for the song “Apple Jack” by the Danish country singer, Jeanette Nielsen. Standing there in his small rubber boots and with a plastic guitar in hand, Chris Veber made some real rockin’ country from the heart.
Later, he took his interest in music to the next stage. He started playing the keyboard. At the age of 13 he got himself his very first gig at a small-town party hosted by the local venue “The Old Smithy”. When Chris turned 14, he began playing the guitar. After he learned the guitar, he quickly developed his own style in country music.
Chris Veber is inspired by numerous famous country singers such as Garth Brooks, Alabama, George Strait, Alan Jackson and Brooks & Dunn. Chris Veber’s style is traditional country spiced with a little touch of rock & pop – and of course, lyrics of heartfelt emotions.
In May 2019 Chris released his first single, “Two Candles”, which also appeared on his first album, “Chris Veber”, which consists of 14 original country songs written by Russell B. Burke from New Zealand and Chris Veber himself. The album was recorded in Russell’s studio at the Western town “Pullman City Harz” in Hasselfelde, Germany.
Today Chris Veber spends a great amount of time touring with his band “Chris Veber & Southern Highway”. Besides Chris, the band consists of four other highly skilled and professional musicians, who have all played music for many years and been in musical projects throughout their careers.
