Chris Wynters

In the fall of 1993, Chris formed the band CAPTAIN TRACTOR with Scott he's never really looked back. Seven albums, nine videos, dozens of awards, numerous border crossings and international excursions, tons of fast food and least twenty non-stop Canadian tours later...CAPTAIN TRACTOR is one of this country's most successful independent bands ever. Their album, EAST OF EDSON, is a gold record in Canada, having reached this mark through the efforts of the band's own record label, LUGAN RECORDS. They have since signed a record deal with SIX SHOOTER/WARNER.

In 2000, CAPTAIN TRACTOR and the Janes teamed up and remounted DIAMOND STUDS and Chris returned to doing theatre for the first time in six years. Soon after that he appeared in the Canadian Premiere of Stephen Sondheim's first musical, SATURDAY NIGHT. Next Chris teamed up with Tim Ryan and Jeff Smook and wrote RED LIPS, THE MUSICAL which was nominated for several Sterlings. He also appeared in that show and has continued to pursue acting. Recently he appeared as Johnny Casino in the Citadel Theatre's production of GREASE. He also played SKZSP the Guitar Player for the Angry Inch in HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH with Theatre Network for which he received a Sterling Award for outstanding Musical Direction. He even had a principal role in the Stephen Spielberg produced mini-series INTO THE WEST.

In 2005 Chris released his first solo album, SKYWRITING, on SIX SHOOTER/WARNER and has been touring both solo and with CAPTAIN TRACTOR. Chris has received many awards as a songwriter including SOCAN's Songwriter of the year for his song, SOMEDAY and Alberta Recording Industry Assocition Award (ARIA) for Single Of The Year for a song called UP THE HILL.

Recently Chris built and opened The Norwood Studio in Edmonton, Alberta. He has been busy recording musical scores for film and television and, along with his partner JAMES MURDOCH (Indica/Aquarius), has been producing records for various artists, icluding AMY SEELEY, NICK PERREAULT, DEON BLYAN and THE WHEAT POOL. Recently, Six Shooter Records released, SONGS FROM THE AVENUE, which was co-produced by Chris along with James Murdoch and Scott Peters.
