Chris Reinhardt was born in Berlin, Germany. Influenced by his own blend of jazz, with a touch of soul, r&b and pop, he brings his fresh, elegant sax grooves to create his own twist on the contemporary jazz genre.
After his 2010 collaboration with soul singer Bashiyra ‘The Voice’ (UK) on her single “It’s Working Out” and the appearance as a 2011 semi-finalist of the ISC International Songwriting Competition in the jazz category (Nashville, TN.) alongside competition winner and celebrated artist Gregory Porter, he has been in the studio crafting his solo debut album.
“Mind Evolution” featuring jazz/soul vocalist Rogiérs (US) (former keyboardist and background singer of multi-platinum Grammy winner Alicia Keys), produced by LA/Miami transplant and label head Astral 22 was the first teaser release of his album titled “Inside Identity – A reflection on the cycles of love”. The record features guest appearances by pianist Felix Dubiel, keyboardists Jesse Fischer, Nicoal Fanari plus drummers Alex Grünberg and Federico Beltro. “Mind Evolution” entered the Top 50 on the Smooth Jazz Now Charts (US) for 16 weeks throughout 2013, followed by the album opening track “Drift” that reached the Top 10 on the Groove Wave Radio Charts (Brazil) for 4 weeks in 2014.
Chris regularly appears live on stage with German classical/pop/jazz pianist Felix Dubiel and plays the sax for jazz trio Tree Men. Also he additionally resides in several band formations such as Soultown. Gaining inspiration from his Chicago time, Chris currently has released his new single “Stay Close” that hit the Top 10 of the Smooth Jazz Adds Radio Charts (US) and lately has performed with international acclaimed vocalist Alicia Keys.
