Toronto-based Chris Antonik was nominated for Best New Artist in 2011 at Canada’s Maple Blues Awards after the release of his debut album, and has since become one of Canada’s fastest-rising Blues artists. Blending innovative, thoughtful songwriting with stunning Blues guitar work, some music critics have drawn comparisons to Eric Clapton. In its 2010 year-end review, Chris was named the “future of the blues” by Canada’s Blues Underground Network. In 2013, Chris’ sophomore album Better for You was hailed by critics as “a masterpiece,” “the best Canadian blues-rock album of 2013,” and “the sound of someone taking the blues to a new place.” Chris released his third studio record “Monarch” in April 2017, which was nominated for Recording of the Year (and Chris as producer) at the 2018 Maple Blues Awards.  Chris was also nominated for Songwriter of the Year.
