Chris Bozzone is a Philadelphia-based soundtrack composer, songwriter and filmmaker. In 2018, his scores to stories for Thomas Ligotti's The Bungalow House, a vinyl-and-cassette release, as well as vinyl-only releases of both H.P. Lovecraft's The Hound and Edgar Allan Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart, were released by Cadabra Records. In 2019, his soundtrack for Thomas De Quincey's Suspiria de Profundis: Levana and Our Ladies of Sorrow was released on vinyl in conjunction with Record Store Day in the UK on Saturday, April 13th. Suspiria was Chris's first 7" record and marked the first of a series of recently announced record-only releases from Cadabra, set to come out over the course of 2019. To date, he has set his music around the extraordinary voice actors Jon Padgett, Andrew Leman, Anthony D.P. Mann and Laurence R. Harvey.
Chris also co-directed and did the soundtrack for an award-winning short film, "Mirrors," which was selected by filmmaker David Lynch to screen in conjunction with a Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts exhibit of Lynch's visual art.
He has played on live bills with musical artists such as James Blackshaw, Sir Richard Bishop, Sharron Kraus and the late Jack Rose. For about 10 years, Chris was a disc jockey for WPRB in Princeton, New Jersey where he co-hosted two long-running shows. Some notable guests on his last radio show included Simon Finn, Christina Carter, and Six Organs of Admittance.
"Chris Bozzone has an artistic vision, which brings together cosmic exploration and the literary gothic, as in the beautiful corrupted by decay... his albums move through contemplation, nature exploration, and hallucinogenic tapestries to portentous terror. At the edge of his music is a fear and sadness that our reality is fragile and that we cannot understand what lies beyond ."
"... Bozzone shadows his words with malign electronics and wheezing-drones, as if slowly prising open the portal to an abyss."
"A truly gifted songwriter whose talent for sculpting gorgeous melodies is only equaled by the imaginative set of arrangements he uses to perfect them."
“With his fourth release, Horizons of Death, Chris brings light from the edges with a whole new approach to his instrumentation and songwriting. The vibe is still morose and chilling, but the flourishes of strings and brass convey that Chris has finally hit upon something truly exceptional.”
"You know, if a music mag like, say, I don't know, Pitchfork really cared about music as much as they do style and trend, they would of already heard of and written about Chris Bozzone. He deserves that kind of visibility..."
