Chris von Sneidern (or CVS as he likes to be called) is a Singer-Songwriter from San Francisco who specializes in powerful and melodious pop with streamlined harmonies and diamond-edged hooks. His latest release on Mod Lang Records is inspired a bit by the Beatles. However, unlike many of today's songwiters who look toward Liverpool for some inspiration, CVS is more in touch with his inner McCartney rather than his inner Lennon. Influences aside, his vision of a smiling pop utopia shine through the songs here. Take some time to check him out.
