Chris King is a songwriter, music and film producer, and award winning author. He also happens to be the singer in my St Louis bands, Enormous Richard, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Three Fried Men.
Chris has produced or co-produced musical adaptations of the poetry of Gertrude Stein, Pulitzer laureate Paul Muldoon, Missouri Poet Laureate David Clewell, Australian poet laureate Les Murray and Connecticut Poet Laureate Leo Connellan. He directed two feature silent films for Poetry Scores "Blind Cat Black," which scores the Turkish poet Ece Ayhan, and "Go South for Animal Index," which scores the Salt Lake City / St. Louis poet Stefene Russell.
He co-produced "No Dark in America" by legendary jump blues musician Rosco Gordon (Dualtone, 2002). He served as executive producer on St. Louis raconteur Fred Friction's "Murder Balladeer" and on "Just Piping" by All-Ireland piper Michael Cooney, and he produced "Memory Music" by Merchant Marine songster Pops Farrar, the father of Jay Farrar (Uncle Tupelo / Son Volt).
And he has done all this while working daily as the managing editor of The St. Louis American, the largest weekly newspaper in Missouri.
