BIO

Chris Marsol is an actor, musician and recording artist emanating from the San Francisco Bay Area. Some of his most memorable live shows have included opening for The Roots, Lyrics Born and Raphael Saadiq (Tony! Toni! Tone!).  His two album releases; Rockit Science and Butterflies, Lipstick and Hand Grenades have received international radio play, press accolades and a dedicated following.  He is currently hard at work on his next self-produced release Time Is A Circus. which features his signature alchemy of Pop, rock and soul.  When it comes to his love for acting, Chris remembers when it all started.  “I got the lead in my 5th grade musical called Steamboat’n. I was 11 and I played a 70-something year old man.  I grayed my hair, changed my voice and walked differently, talked differently.  I was completely hooked right then and there.”  Chris is perhaps best known for roles in 3 different installments of the uber-popular NBA 2K video game franchise.  Chris has gone on to work with talents like Spike Lee, Michael B. Jordan, Ja-Rule and Adrienne Houghton ("The View") on various film projects.  Chris can also be seen acting on stage.  He most recently appeared in a stage production of August Wilson’s award winning play The Piano Lesson.  Always working on his craft, Marsol spent time in London training at the prestigious Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.  Just as in his music, Chris unabashedly seeks out opportunities to challenge himself and dive into characters where he can share his own unique and authentic vibration.  When not in front of an instrument or a camera, Chris can usually be found binging on science and nature documentaries.  “I’m a space geek and an animal nerd.  I’ve got all of this useless information in my brain and I’m just waiting for my moment where it will all come in handy.”
