Most artists would settle for their music to be known for dope beats, cool rhymes, and crisp verses. But for the Mexican American Singer/Songwriter Chris Mar, getting known for the stories behind the music matters most. In his latest single ‘Bella,’ Chris Mar proves that his artistry reflects hard work, experience, passion, and love for music, triumph, and legacy.
Chris Mar started his journey as an aspiring artist at the age of 15. As a creative content maker, he composed his music and recorded these songs at Sonic Palace Studios. He honed his craft with the help of his friend, mentor, and sound engineer, SoundGuyMike. This focus and love for the arts and music have translated into Chris Mar’s work ethic and dedication, where he spends every day polishing and shaping his skills and talent to serve new music in the arena. With this, his latest original single has come to fruition, too.
Chris Mar always had this vision of connecting people through his music, from the Latin community to the other parts of the globe. He captivates women’s hearts by writing songs in the sexy Spanish language and even in English, too. The extraordinary talent at hand has also led Chris Mar to successful collaborations with other artists, models, and skills. He believes that artists should always be open to changes and always find a way to connect with the audience. One way of which is telling and showing the audience his authentic self.
“I wanted to create a legacy and start doing what I love to do. Making music calms me down and keeps me busy. It has helped me stay out of trouble and stay on the right path,” says Chris Mar. When he was younger, Chris Mar experienced hardships in his life because of poverty. His mother was just a housewife, while his father worked hard at two different jobs, and they struggled to have food and shelter.
When the time came that he could earn on his own and have his son, he temporarily lost direction. He started to hang out with the wrong crowd and drink on a daily basis, and do drugs. He has also tried driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, which risked his son’s life, and even got arrested four times. But his music offered him a new opportunity where he focused on becoming an excellent singer-songwriter and a loving father at the same time.
Chris Mar continued to improve his craft and decided to release his music demonstrations by working and recording in a studio. However, due to the pandemic, the studio made his records closed for a couple of months. At first, he got bummed with the situation, but then he remembered to put these negative thoughts and events into positive ones. He pursued and discovered a new arena, the music application Fiverr, and developed his music along with other aspiring artists.
As he continues his voyage toward achieving success, Chris Mar has never forgotten his most significant goal of gaining a record deal. With his son as his greatest inspiration in music, he aspires to have a higher drive and motivation to make music a representation of life and legacy—a story which he hopefully thinks that more artists and even his son could follow and continue.
As a singer-songwriter, Chris Mar is always professional in the business and makes sure that people who have been supporting and producing his music and videos are well taken care of. Check out his Instagram for more updates and the latest trends of his music.
