Singer to perform album tonight
Last year’s “Travelers and Thieves” was the triumphant result of Cobleskill-based singer-songwriter Chris Scharling’s attempt at the RPM Challenge: create an album of original music in one month’s time. He’ll be playing the album in its entirety, with his band, at the Kaaterskill House in Stamford at 7 p.m. today.
In 2009, his song “Fuzzy Dice & Neon Headlights” was featured in the video game Guitar Hero.
While attending the State University College at Oneonta for Music Industry, Scharling began writing songs and sharing them with classmates and faculty.
Scharling will be performing the album with his band in its entirety with Albany singer-songwriter Matt Durfee.
