He’s not a exactly a household name, but Christopher Sluka is a prolific musician who flies under the radar. After 11 albums, his low-key approach might be surprising, because Sluka’s music is intricate and compelling, and always has a message.
But this David Bowie-esque performer and songwriter has found international success. He’s not alone, after all there are lot of excellent American musicians who have made it overseas. The U.S. is a hard market to crack. And, in this day and age when there are so many musicians and no barrier to entry, the music business has become the Wild Wild West.
Sluka: San Diego and Around The World
With a diverse collection of music, San Diego-based Sluka is performing and touring just about everywhere these days, and he contributes in a big way to the good of the business. When he first started, Sluka played the New York Club scene, with artists such as INXS, Tears For Fears, Talk Talk and Simple Minds. Today, as they say, he’s “Big in Japan,” where he found a loving audience. He released two albums there.
