Chris Beard's new CD, "Live
Wire", is a compilation of two "live" performances
in Grand Rapids, MI and Chicago, IL which contains new songs and bonus studio tracks. This disc exhibits, without
doubt, Chris' extraordinary talent as a musician and his fantastic stage presence.
"Beard has captured the cream of his performances."

your face guitar, I highly recommend this CD to everyone."
