Whats up World I’m Chris Stout aka Stout Himself. I was actually born in Frankfurt, Germany while both my parents were serving in the US Army. We moved back to the U.S. while I was a baby, winding backup in Troy NY. where my mother was from. I still live in Troy to this day, it’s the home of Uncle Sam so if you don’t know… well… you gone learn today. I Currently have a studio at North Albany Studios in Albany NY. Man, me and Music go back… I’ve always loved and obsessed over music. From being in choir and band when I was in school, to just listening and being a fan, to rapping and finally producing. I listened to a lot of classic rock; Hendrix, Beatles, Zeppelin, Clapton. Jazz, Miles Davis- Kind of Blue changed my life. I love listening to Classical, in fact the only thing I can say I don’t like is country music.
