Kris Hype

Kris was born and raised in the great state of Maine. Music was introduced into his life at six when his mother came home with his first record player. After learning how to read sheet music in the 3rd grade, he picked up the saxophone and also learned how to play the drums. At the age of 12, his life took a drastic turn after losing his father and grandfather within a month of each other.

At this point, Kris and his mother were getting by. It wasn’t until the age of 17 that he picked up the guitar and taught himself how to play. By the age of 18, he wrote his first song. While working with other musicians, he received offers to play for some big-name producers, and everything looked promising.

Unfortunately, those hopes and dreams were put on hold when Kris was a victim of a home invasion in which he was shot and hospitalized. Weeks later, he was arrested by the US Marshalls and charged and eventually convicted of possessing a firearm and marijuana. After spending over five years in a Federal Prison, Kris came home with drive and a fresh look on life. He has since formed the band Burning Time and plays out solo-acoustic full time. He still lives in Maine with his wife and daughters and is a walking testament that anyone can do the right thing even after wandering down the wrong path.
