Chris Burke; An Inspiring Success Story from the Music Industry

Published

on

Reaching New Heights

The path to success is not always straightforward. One needs to take several decisive turns and make critical changes on the way to reach the epitome of excellence. The key remains to stay true to your passion. The success story of Chris Burke, a young EDM and Trance star, is also marked by more or less similar notions.

Like every teenager, Chris also got influenced by the pop and rock revolution spurred in the early 2000s. Eminem, Foo Fighters, Bruce Springsteen, Biffy Clyro are some of the names Chris listened to in his early teens and up till his twenties. But unlike many other millennials, who merely listen to these tracks and never venture on their own to make music, expressing themselves, Chris decided to why not give it a shot, that too quite early in his career.

To do so, he and his homies sat one day and came up with their music band and named it Cold California. The band depicted the true inner feelings and aspirations of these youngsters. They primarily used this opportunity to polish their skills further. From lyrics to composition, they worked on everything. It made their indigenous talents shine brighter. It also infused in them the confidence to perform in front of large crowds.

Chris believes that any track or single is a complete package in which none of the aspects should be left ignored. Writing the lyrics himself, Chris made sure that they do not sound boring and cliché to the audience. You can feel the influence of Biffy Clyro and Eminem in the early tracks of Cold California. The uniqueness and Out-of-the-Box factor of the music made them earn quite a few bucks, besides polishing the skills and making them ready for the music industry.

Then came the big wave of revolution in the music industry. EDM (Electronic Dance Music), although quite old and tracing its roots to the mid-90s, got hyped up just in the recent decade. Chris came across some tracks of Calvin Harris, another of his countrymen making some REAL good music. Those tracks inspired Chris to work in this genre as well.

Like every progressive artist, Chris always kept his doors open for new genres and art forms to express himself. Giving a shot to work in EDM can be attributed as one of the best decisions of his life. EDM offers a lot of creative space to the artist without being dull and boring for the audience.  

2019 was the year EDM enthusiasts witnessed the work of Chris. His first two EDM singles, Space and Time, and Dreamers are still popular among the fans. His emphasis was to keep the music free from all that extra shebang that sometimes makes the song hectic and tiresome rather than relaxing and soothing. The minimalism, epic drops, and catchy tune contributed towards making these songs a GREAT HIT! Even Tiesto also featured Never Really Liked You, a single by Chris, on his radio show, Club Life. It is quite an achievement for any music producer as Tiesto is often regarded as a mentor by many of the big names in the industry.

Time passed by, Chris kept working on his music, refining it more and more with every track and album and every passing day. Even after achieving new landmarks, Chris was looking for more ways to express himself. He was on vacation in Orlando, Florida, in 2019. There he went to one of the concerts of Gareth Emery. He was pretty impressed by the deepness and sole-penetrating potential of trance music; the way it makes the crowd go crazy on its mild beats, that too in a simple way. It made him work in this genre as well. He started experimenting with its technicalities. Exploring this genre, he found the tracks of Paul Van Dyke and Armin Van Buren very touching. Eventually, he also released a single with Eximinds on Suanda Records in the March of 2020. Although the world was in a state of lockdown for an indefinite period in 2020 because of the Corona outbreak, the response was still pretty encouraging. It made this clear to Chris that the masses were liking his music, and he was on the right track.

Even today, his tracks are the spirit of parties and Clubs worldwide. Looking forward to doing more, Chris is planning to release more Trance and EDM tracks, and the fans are direly waiting for their release. You can imagine the scale of success of young Chris from him raising 3.5 million streaks on Spotify, just in the first year of his music career. So, let’s see what he is up to more!
