My name is Kris Hansen. I grew up in Rhode Island. I have been playing out since I was 14. I am 36 now. There isn't a live room, restaurant, out door event or party that I haven't played in RI in all these years. RI is my home town! I have played in Boston @ the Middle East, played Worcester with Rustic Overtones, Salem @ Gulu Gulu. In Maine I played @ Camp Creek. I have played New London, New Haven, NYC...I was @ SXSW in 2013. The places we play have us back too! When I am not playing with my band I am doing acoustic sets all over the place with my buddy Big Jon Tierney. I am a professional singer, songwriter, musician, performer, funny man. I have been recording and compiling my material over the last 7 years. I have released two CDs under the name Kris Hansen's Left Hand Band. Then I changed the formula a bit and released the Viking Jesus CD. Viking Jesus was thrown at me as a insult by my old drummer and partner in crime, Bob Giusti. He said I looked like a fat Viking Jesus, I changed my band name the next day...left out the fat cause I figured I'd lose some weight. Bob left Viking Jesus. He plays with "Sasquatch"/"King Sickabilly" now. My brother, Erik took over for a minute till Nick Iddon joined on drums. We had John Amitrano playing bass for us for 2 years and grabbed Evan Gilroy to take John's place. John plays in Forever Young and reunites with his old band the Ditch Diggers from time to time. We still chill. Uriah Donnelly plays the Keys in the live band. Uriah and I have been friends since 12. George Dussault has been my close working partner for the last several years in every recording project. He plays Guitar in the live band and can be heard playing just about everything on my records. With a new release on the way and our line up complete, George and I have been bringing the live band members into the studio to record their own parts for a couple of the songs. We feel like there will be more of that happening from now on. Right now we are currently trying to perform more regional and cut out a market for ourselves.
