Welcome to


Do you need a one man band? Solo acoustic stylings? I know a guy...

CHRISTOPHER AMES is always listening for singable stories. Traveling the country for over 20 years as a solo performer, he does his level best to wring every drop of emotion, faith, honesty, and truth out of the stories he sings and the guitar he plays. Christopher Ames simply wants to make music that leaves a mark.


And at the end of the day, it’s always about the songs. Whether the songs are originals or classic rock covers, they are born out of life, out of experience, out of mileage, out of our stories... speaking to this Christopher says, “The more I hear people tell their stories, the more I recognize that our lives are mosaics interwoven with threads of grace. The edges are sharp, there is joy and heartbreak, but in the midst of it all, there is hope.” It is these mosaics, these stories and this Hope that informs the songs of CHRISTOPHER AMES.
