Chris Fraser is a musician, educator and composer based in Vancouver, BC. As a guitar player, Fraser has been called one of the Vancouver jazz scene’s most exciting new voices today. An uncanny improviser, Fraser takes a modern approach to the traditional jazz idiom with influence from guitarists Jim Hall, Bill Frisell, John Scofield and Peter Bernstein. Working more often as a bandleader, Fraser can be seen at any of Vancouver’s mainstay jazz clubs like Frankie’s, Tangent, Pat’s Pub, and 2nd Floor Water St. At 30 years old, Fraser holds a bachelor’s degree in jazz studies from Capilano University and is a BC Arts Council grant recipient having studied in New York under contemporary jazz guitar masters Peter Bernstein and Gliad Hekselman. He can be heard on his EP Give (click here to listen).
