Todd comes to us from Los Angeles, California. Playing the trumpet led him to being a music major at California State University, Northridge. He has played in cover and original bands all his life. He’s been fortunate to play and sing many places, including; Disneyland, Dodger Stadium, and opening for Richard Marx with his band, on Marx’s Endless Summer Nights tour. A multi-instrumentalist, Todd is most at home on the bass and brings a solid groove to The Front’s low end. Todd’s first instrument, the piano, provides all of The Front's keyboard needs. Todd is on a first name basis with almost everyone at Guitar Center (picture Norm walking into the bar on Cheers…you get the idea). You’ll find him there, or outdoors, taking in all that Idaho has to offer. Fun fact, Todd was part of the World’s Largest Marching Band (at the time) and was certified in the Guinness Book of World Records

In addition, he was one of the youngest musicians in the country driving all over the island to play at local wedding and corporate events. After serving in the Cyprus military for two years, Chris moved to the United States to go to school at Boise State University from which he graduated with his bachelor's and master's degrees. Chris currently works for an international tech company and loves spending time with his wife and dog in the Boise foothills, camping and enjoying the outdoors.
