Grammy nominated, Christopher Thomas was born in 1970 in St. Louis, Missouri.
Although he’s the only musician in his family, he took to music as if he were a born legacy. His musical venture began with the violin, then quickly gravitated towards the
cello and finally settling with the double bass at age 13.
He began his bass studies under the guidance of Henry Lowe, Principal Bassist of the St. Louis Symphony. He later attended the University of Wisconsin in Madison where he
studied under the tutelage of Richard Davis. He continued his education at the University of New Orleans, studying music fundamentals, jazz improvisation and played
weekly shows with his mentor and teacher, Mr. Ellis Marsalis.

Over Christopher’s past 35 years of his professional musical career, he has had the pleasure of recording and touring with such great artist as: Ellis Marsalis – Betty Carter – Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra/ Wynton Marsalis – Harry Connick Jr. – Terrence Blanchard – Joshua Redman – Marianne Faithful – Daniel Lanois – Everlast – Macy Gray – The Soul Of John Black – Ray Lamontagne – Brian Blade and The Fellowship Band – Brain Blade “Mama Rosa Band” – Ayo – Jean-Louis Murat – Norah Jones – Melody Gardot – Laïka & The Unit


“I’m a Bass Player, simple. I love that title. I’m a warm lovin’, no nonsense, old soul and that’s how I like my gear to be. I need an amplifier that compliments my style and work ethic. That’s why I love Markbass amps. They remind me of the reason why I play; supportive, warm and not complicated at all. With Markbass amps, I can be me and continue to keeping party’s LIVE!”  — Christopher Thomas aka CT —
