Kris Nelson

Kris Nelson Band

Music Artist

Albany, Western Australia

Kris Nelson is a multi award winning indie/folk artist based in WA’s Great Southern. His sound falls somewhere between the likes of Passenger and Gregory Alan Isakov. It’s best described as a blend of the lyrical focus of folk and the energy and stylings of indie.
With over 15 years of experience under his belt, Nelson’s original music has allowed him to tour as far as Canada, The US and many times around WA and the Eastern States.
Picking up a couple of WAM’s prestigious Song of The Year awards helped cement him into the WA music scene. Landing supports with Australian heavy weights such as Josh Pyke, Kav Temperley (Eskimo Joe) and Alex Lloyd.
Nelson will be joined by two of Albany’s most accomplished musicians. Tony King on bass and Paul Meyers on drums. Both legendary staples of the Albany music scene. Nelson describes them as a dream rhythm section that are second to none.
The debut solo album is set for release in early 2021.
