A Picture of C.E. Breslin

Chris is currently a graduate student in the Divinity School at Duke University in Durham, NC.  When school's not in, he's either in the kitchen or in the coffee shop.  Music-wise, he actually really likes the three Dylan records made between 1979 and '81.  He has his folks to thank for his uncanny affection for The Beatles, Three Dog Night, and Tom Petty & in the last 5 years has built on this Gibralter-like foundation with a slew of beloved North Carolinian acts including the Avett Brothers, Roman CandleThe Old Ceremony, the Drughorse CollectiveLuego, and Brett Harris.
