As a singer-songwriter, I'm inspired by the work of musicians I love, including The Beatles, Lead Belly, James Taylor, and Stevie Nicks. My music is an eclectic indie brand of pop, folk, & rock. You can check it out on Spotify and Soundcloud, and there's lots more on YouTube, Instagram, ReverbNation, Facebook, and Twitter. See Calendar for upcoming events & links to my April-October 2020 Facebook Live concerts.
I grew up on a road called Dugway (meaning "dug along a hillside") in western Massachusetts, where I learned to play guitar, piano, drums, and harmonica. In high school, I started writing and producing my own songs, performing under the name Dugway with my friend Blake Poore. The one-man band concept came about when I was living alone in Boston, playing in the subways and on the street, and it was so much fun I've kept it up. Dugway Productions & Songwriting is my music production/post-production & songwriting-for-hire business.
"Chris Considine is a performer and songwriter of rare charm and confidence. His pure voice is the perfect vehicle for songs that tap both rock history and contemporary sounds through great melodies and wit."
Track: "You Are (Who You Say You Are)"
From: Islands (album)
"A Massachusetts based one-man power-pop god…Chris Considine is one of the few artists these days who plays 60s power-pop as nature intended and adds just that little bit of smoke filled Americana atmospherics for good measure."

Chris Considine – “Greener Pastures Syndrome”
"We’ve covered Considine in the past and it’s easy to hear why we keep saying yes to his music. There’s a beautiful, lush composition style to the track right from the start. The electric guitars fill the space until the vocal harmonies enter… and then… wow! I would assume these are a bit of studio magic (forgive me if I’m wrong), but they are still undeniably pleasing to the ear. The combination of lush arrangements and poetic lyrics are always going to get me. Considine has a gift for writing the kind of singer songwriter folk-informed rock that I totally dig."

"In fact one of those [ReverbNation] artists is the Berkshires’ own son Christopher Considine. I love that while scanning through hundreds of submissions from all over the world, I stumbled across some of the most brilliant lyrics brought to life by one of the most arresting voices from just down the road. . . . His gift for accompanying lyric tales with panache and imagination are evident in 'On the Cusp,' a single that dropped even after his 2019 release of his full-length album Dugway."

Chris Considine – “Long Lost Friend”
"This track has the kind of acoustic guitar work that folk fans love. It’s approachable, easy going, and allows the vocal to really shine. I don’t know anything about the characters in this story, but the song makes me want to know how they’re doing and how everything worked out. The use of clever cliches for lyrical moments is definitely a unique feature of the song. It’s an intriguing song, allowing the imagination to take a lot of liberties."
Here I am with my trusty Martin. My other guitar is a Gretsch. Love both.
