He began playing the guitar at the age of ten, and by the age of sixteen he had formed the alternative band, The Drunk Poets, who in the 1990’s greatly influenced the Alaskan music scene. Watkins has continued to carry the band name with various members coming and going over the years.
Some of Watkins’ influences have been Lou Reed, Talking Heads and Bob Dylan. Watkins is currently residing in Alaska where he continues to write and record music. His most recent album is “Lights All Askew”. SoundWaves Review Music Blog wrote, “Lights All Askew feels timeless, like it should already be a classic.”
Chis Watkins is gaining international acclaim, as news of his music is spreading with countless excellent reviews and radio stations all over the world playing his music. The Eclectic Music Lover Music Blog writes, "There are some singer/songwriters whose music stays with you long after hearing it, drawing you back for another listen. Chris Watkins and his band, The Drunk Poets, make that kind of music, reminiscent of Bob Dylan, Shawn Mullins and Lou Reed – simple, pure and honest, but always with a compelling story. His smooth low-key vocals are incredibly soothing to the ear, yet at the same time quite powerful. Following up on their superb 2015 album “London Can Take It”, Watkins/Drunk Poets dropped their latest album “Lights All Askew” in July 2016, and it’s another work of musical art. Drunk poetry indeed!"
