Chris DeStefano
A native of Mt Laurel, New Jersey, Chris DeStefano is a Grammy Award Winning singer/songwriter, record producer/mixer and multi-instrumentalist.  Chris began singing at a very early age in the acclaimed Academy Boys Choir of Philadelphia. At age 13, he acquired his first guitar and remembers writing his very first songs shortly after.  Driven by his passion for music and knack for picking up new instruments, DeStefano’s talents lead him to Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music where he studied film scoring.  Upon graduating, DeStefano followed the natural migration for many aspiring film score composers and moved to Los Angeles, California. However, what he discovered in LA was not
the soundstage, but his gift for songwriting and producing. Setting his sights on the Country Airplay chart, Chris began splitting time between LA and Nashville, collaborating with some of Nashville’s hottest songwriters and artists. The transition was seamless and in early 2012 Chris
charted his first country single with Jana Kramer’s “Why You Wanna” which peaked at #3 on the Billboard chart. Right on the heels of this success, DeStefano achieved his first Country chart topper #1 with the song “Good Girl” recorded by Country superstar Carrie Underwood.
DeStefano has also produced the Sunday Night Football Theme for Carrie Underwood and NBC Sports for the past 8 seasons.
