Christopher Weir has spent the better part of the last 25 years on one stage or another. Whether as an actor in theatre, film and television in New York City and Los Angeles, a multiple award winning professional speaker and emcee, or as a singer songwriter sharing his stories and songs from California to Texas, Christopher has been doing what he loves, entertaining. He even had the fortunate opportunity to be included in a songwriters round in 2014 on the bank of the White River in Arkansas with legendary songwriters John Prine and Roger Cook.
Music, specifically story songs, grabbed Christopher's attention as a young boy when he first heard "Don't Take Your Guns to Town" by Johnny Cash. Several years later as a teenager, Jerry Jeff Walker's "Navajo Rug" would ignite a fire to learn to play guitar and write lyric driven songs. It would be some time though before the scrap pieces of paper, bar napkins and notebook entries would come together in finished song. The stories of little victories and devastating heartbreak would have to be gathered first along a troubadour’s journey.
In 2022, his first studio recording, "The Winter That Daddy Died," a tribute to is his father who passed away in 2021 was released on all streaming platforms. Christopher is looking forward to releasing his first album in the latter half of 2023. Until then look for him to be out sharing his stories and songs at local bars and venues from Dallas/Fort Worth up I30 East to the Ozark mountain creeks of Stone County, Arkansas.
