Anything that\'s good music. Chris feels that "genres" are all very well, but thinks the music speaks louder than words used to describe it. If he had to quote any particular musicians as influences, he would probably choose Jaco Pastorius, Joni Mitchell, David Crosby, CSNY, James Taylor, Ian Anderson from Jethro Tull, Fairport Convention, Steely Dan, and his mum and dad.
