PENGUIN PRISON‘s self-titled debut album garnered substantial critical acclaim across both mainstream and indie media: ROLLINGSTONE.com cited his “excellent” songwriting and “sleek, modern production style [that] recalls Phoenix, Scissor Sisters and Hot Chip,” while SPIN.com called the album, “one of the catchiest concoctions” and KCRW said he’s “so damn good.” Since releasing his debut LP, Chris has been praised by BBC for “turning out immaculate remixes for Marina and the Diamonds, The Temper Trap and Dirty Vegas…” as well as for his DJ sets with live vocals which have been described as “some of the most engaging on the Williamsburg scene” by the NEW YORK TIMES. Chris added a full band to his live show in 2011, playing high profile shows all over the U.S., Canada, Mexico, South America and Europe; including festival appearances at Bonnaroo, Governors Ball, Firefly Music Festival, Virgin Free Fest, Fun Fun Fun Fest, TomorrowWorld, Wakarusa, Electric Forest, Budweiser Made In America, Splash House, Full Moon Fest, Culture Collide and more.
