Chrissy Flatt was born in Austin, Tx. The youngest of three girls, she lost her father , who passed away from heart failure at the age of 61, when she was only four years old. His death had a devastating effect on her childhood which has informed her music with a powerful sense of solitude and loss. After her fathers passing her family moved to the notoriously eccentric bible-belt town of Waco, Tx. and then finally to San Antonio, Tx where she felt a deep connection and where music increasingly became her best friend.
Her influences range from Buddy Holly & Loretta Lynne to the Rolling Stones & The Ronettes while the music she writes and plays has been compared to earlier period Lucinda Williams and more recently Aimee Mann.
In 2002 she released her debut “Wings of a Butterfly”
which was well-received by the press and fans alike.
Her second release, “Walk With Kings” is built on a foundation of ’60s rock’n’roll essentials, framed by rootsy sensibilities and dressed with tasteful orchestrations. Produced by Eric Hisaw "Walk With Kings" reunites an A-list of musicians from her debut "Wings of a Butterfly" with Ron Flynt (20/20) on bass, keyboards and vocals, Stephen Belans (Beaver Nelson) on drums, Brian Standefer (Patti Griffin/ Alejandro
Escovedo) on cello and Eric Hisaw (Eric Hisaw Band) on guitar. Tom Semioli of Amplifier magazine says she is "romantically inclined and decidedly rootsy...she does approach her art with a classic 60''s Greenwich Village singer-song-writer aesthetic that is pleasing, effective and ultimately refreshing." She''s received press from Magnet Magazine, The Austin Chronicle, Texas Music, 3rd Coast Music, and the Nashville Rage among others. She has toured in Arkansas, Tennessee, Missouri, Kansas and of course you can find her playing regionally around Texas.
