Composer - Musician - Producer

Music from the heart that stimulates visual landscapes of imagination
Christopher Nielsen began as a drummer-percussionist in many local and touring groups out of the Minnesota Music Scene. He evolved as a pianist and multi-instrumentalist through his lifelong career as a bandleader, producer, and composer for video and television productions. His musical tastes are founded on jazz, blues, R&B, Soul, and multicultural folk music. His style has evolved to reflect a range of acoustic piano in the likes of George Winston meets Ramsey Lewis and a percussive backbeat from origins of drummers like Billy Cobham, Carmine Apiece, Tony Williams, and bands like Earth Wind and Fire, Weather Report, Miles Davis to Tower of Power. "Our Voyage Home" is his first album after a 15 year sabbatical and documents works from over a 40 year period.

Photos from musical experiences over the years
After returning to music from 15 years in retirement, I am glad to share a few of the many images from my humble beginnings with the Lowertown Band to the last touring group I was with Curtis and the Kicks. There are also a few studio shots from the production of my latest two albums. It has been a real privilege to work with so many great musicians, producers, and engineers over the years.
