Chris Klimecky is a producer and musician in the Seattle area. Originally from Michigan, he toured much of the midwest in the 90’s as frontman for melodic prog rock band Jester’s Crown, releasing two full length albums – Above the Storm (1995) and Away (1998) – as well as the acoustic EP Where Daydreams Play (1996). Moving to Seattle at the turn of the millennium, he continued forward playing and recording all instruments in his home studio for the CD Marooned (2001). Twelve songs recorded between 2007-2009 with a variety of songwriting collaborations were brought together for the release Bankrupt Generation (2010). After a major home studio upgrade, new songs for the 2012 release entitled This Journey are redefining the vision and production of Chris’s work. It is a new high watermark that he is thrilled to share with the world. He has also produced recordings for a number of other musicians and hosts a podcast for Songwriters in Seattle, a non-profit org with over 500 member musicians which he organizes.
