Chris Yale

I first heard Chris Yale’s music on Bill Dey’s Country Music Cast. I quickly grew to love his catchy country-rock music with insightful lyrics. Chris is also a podcasting musician, though his podcasts are far too infrequent. He has released his music as pod-safe and is attracting a fair bit of attention among podcasters. He lives in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and grew up in Hollywood, California so he has lots of great stories.
