Behind the Music
Christophe Carington is a San Francisco based American jazz guitarist, composer, and arranger - mixing the sounds of Traditional Jazz with Latin, Eastern European folk, and Classical to forge his own energetic, yet romantic style of acoustic guitar playing.
He began playing classical violin at the age of 9, but quickly fell in love with guitar a few years later studying both for many years to come. However, at the age of 24, Christophe arrived in Paris where he discovered Jazz Manouche for the first time. This eventually led him to discover the music of Django Rienhardt and the Gypsy Jazz style - a major influence in his current musical endeavors.
Christophe has toured and recorded with many American artists across multiple genres such as The Hot Club of San Francisco, Dig the Kid, Willie G, and many more. He is currently working on his first solo album, which will be released in 2024.
