From the mind of Chris Rupp, founder of NBC’s The Sing Off Season 4 winner Home Free and the “Chris Rupp Project,” comes a vocal quartet that is forging a new identity in the music world. Each member has an unique musical and performance background, from Broadway and Reality TV, to cruise ships, Hollywood and more, bringing a wide and diverse flavor to everything 7th Ave does. Combining elements of pop, swing, rockabilly, country and jazz just to name a few, 7th Ave is aiming to reinvent and uproot the standard definitions of all of those genres through our innovative arrangements and fun music videos.
Chris was the founder and musical director of the country vocal band Home Free, Season 4 winner of NBC’s The Sing Off, for 15 years, and is now taking his skills and talents to his latest and greatest project, 7th Ave. Chris was born and raised in Mankato, MN and spent his whole life surrounded by music, as his mother is a professional musician as well. He graduated with a degree in music from Minnesota State University – Mankato, and spent the next decade teaching piano, guitar, and voice privately while at the same time working to build Home Free into the sensation that it is today. Collectively his music videos have been viewed more than 250 million times on YouTube. He has collaborated with such artists as Kenny Rogers, The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels, Kira Isabella, Taylor Davis, Peter Hollens, Nick Lachey, Jewel, Patrick Stump, and Shawn Stockman. He also has released his own solo album of original music, Shine, 2 a cappella Gospel CDs (Rise and A New Day) a Christmas album, and original piano CD, and a collection of classical piano pieces.
