the music of Chris Merritt

Join The Merritt System. Get updates on Chris's music

Chris Merritt is a songwriter, musician, producer, and piano tuner. He's toured the US and Japan, put out over 10 full records under his own name (and several others: from his early days with Paperface to his newer collaboration with Cruise Elroy), the list goes on.

In recent years, Chris released his latest album entitled "Humanity Unmasked" in 2020, and another one is on the way as he continues to explore the beliefs, philosophy and truth of the human condition through music that is entirely its own genre. His jazz-training combined with his love for rock and pop, has prickled even the most critical ears' interest. Chris ran an Indiegogo campaign in 2017 raising over $12,000, exceeding its original goal to create the album "Time Is Real" --it was entirely fan-funded, showing the impact this musician has made on his followers. His signature melodic and harmonic prog-pop has been taken to a new level of production and mixing.  All the while, he has been producing music for television commercials, publishing piano sheet music, teaching, and sculpting melodies.
This site is to document and share all of the music, philosophy, video content, and creativity that emanates from his very existence.

Merritt-Fans - old and new - Get ready....And stay tuned.
