Kris Ehrman grew up in Seattle, WA playing the guitar and drums since the age of six. At that time his influences were ‘70s and ‘80s rock, funk, and folk. When Kris turned 24, he moved to San Diego, CA to engineer in a recording studio. Through this experience he found himself drawn to World Music and eventually became a part of the Galoka jazz scene in a world fusion band called Forward Funk. Kris has performed in groups that have opened up for Israel Vibration, Angelique Kidjo, Antibalas, and Charlie Hunter.
