A Little Bio

Singing and playing for live public audiences has been a dream of mine since I was in grade school. I’ve heard it said and have stated myself that “Things happen for a reason.” True or not, perhaps the story of my journey to become a self-employed professional guitar-vocalist will give you pause to think otherwise and invite me (a.k.a. hire me) to speak and perform at your next event, fundraiser, house concert, restaurant, winery, or wherever.


What People Say

Testimonials from Musicians and Music Industry Professionals (M.I.P.s)

Chris Heider’s music hearkens back to a time when all you needed was an acoustic guitar, a voice, and a message.
A breath of fresh air indeed.

Richie Rivera – Pulse Records USA

Singer-songwriter Chris Heider evokes a freshness and honesty seldom seen in today’s music business. He has the unique ability to craft a tune that can be both fulfilling and leave you with some bits of wisdom, all at the same time!

Mike Stark, Producer, First Flight Recording Studios Dayton, OH

Chris Heider writes songs with honesty and feeling, then compliments his writing with heartfelt and soulful vocals and playing. It is always a pleasure to spend an evening listening to Chris Heider -‘Just Passing Through.

Lynn (Perdzock) Farley, Raggedy Edge, “Littlest Big Band;” Recording artist; Singer-Songwriter; Guitarist, Vocalist, Mandolin artist, Ukulele artist

Chris’s vocals and guitar playing are smooth and easy to listen to, whether pure and simple strings and voice or making tasteful use of technology to back up and augment his sound. He is truly a singer-songwriter worth visiting.

Bob Farley, Raggedy Edge, “Littlest Big Band,” Recording artist, Guitarist, Singer-Songwriter, Electric Guitarist, Harpist, Mandolin artist, Ukulele artist

I have years of experience as a session player and producer. Chris’s songs are intelligent, inspirational, musically logical, and worthwhile. His voice is unique and emotive, a proper singer in the folksy rock niche in which he writes and sings.

Randy Villars, Recording artist, Saxophonist, Pianist, Composer, Arranger, Producer, Author, Educator, Dayton, OH


Being our last show at Xenia’s X*ACT Whistle STop, we wanted to end the series with a bang. The Chris Heider Band dinot disappoint. Their performance was one of the best shows we had for the entire series!
Chris really knows how to put together a great show bringing with him Bob Farley, Don Winegar, Marceia Cornwell, and Sue Miller who rank as some of the top musicians in the area. If we at the Xenia Area Community Theater decide to put on another music series Chris will be the first we ask to return.”
