• Chris Brokaw

Chris Brokaw is one of the most versatile guitarists in underground rock. Most notably he was a member of both Codeine (where he played drums) and Come (which has been playing reunion gigs lately and has an April 16 show in New York with Eleventh Dream Day), but he’s also played in lesser-known acts like Pullman, the New Year, and Consonant, and his list of credits as a sideman would fill more space that I feel like using. He’s one of rock’s most thoughtful and selfless musicians, a guy who improves every band he’s in but never angles for the spotlight. And over the years he’s expanded his scope, writing quiet singer-songwriter material and pensive, cinematic instrumentals.
