Cris Cab was born to Cuban parents in Miami, Florida. By the age of five he begged his parents
for a guitar, wanting both to best a friend at the school talent show, and learn the James Bond theme song.
As he practiced and grew older, he dug through old records: The Police, Beatles, and Stones. He spent
summers in the Bahamas with his family. His musical palate widened: Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, and
At 14, Cris? father bought him his first studio sessions. He became a musician with his feet in
multiple worlds: old and new, the States and the Caribbean. By chance meeting, Cris played his early
demos for Pharrell Williams. Pharrell was impressed, but Cris„ talents were raw and unpolished. Heeding
the super-producer?s advice, Cris practiced relentlessly, focused on songwriting, and played any gig he
was allowed into. Three years later, Cris and Pharrell met again. This time, Pharrell was sold, citing “He?s
just getting warmed up, but this kid is the future.”
In 2011, Cris signed a management deal. He released a series of videos, soon becoming popular on blogs
from PerezHilton to Billboard. The most successful of these was a cover of Wiz Khalifa?s “Black and
Yellow,” amassing 100,000 views in its first week. The dialogue between Cris and his fans grew
exponentially, resulting in the well-received EP, Foreword, and its original single, “Good Girls.”
