Biografia de Chris Rea

Chris Rea (2010)
Chris Rea. (Christopher Anton Rea). É um músico britânico de ascendência ítalo-irlandesa, nascido em 4 de Março de 1951 em Middlesbrough, Inglaterra. Além de ser cantor, guitarrista, compositor e produtor musical, também é pintor, ator e piloto de corridas. A maior parte da carreira musical de Rea se baseia numa fusão de pop, rock e blues, com ocasionais elementos orquestrais, de soul, gospel, jazz, música eletrônica, e música tradicional italiana e irlandesa, dominada pela sua voz inconfundível, grave e rouca, e pela sua característica técnica de guitarra, baseada no uso de slide de cristal, ou bottleneck. Desde a década de 2000, após sobreviver a uma série de operações cirúrgicas de alto risco, sua música foi derivando para o estilo Delta Blues, sua maior influência, mesclando com elementos gospel e jazz. Da sua extensa carreira musical, são famosas Fool (If You Think It's Over), I Can Hear Your Heartbeat, On The Beach, Josephine, Looking For The Summer, Julia, Auberge e The Road To Hell (Part II), entre outras.

Um dos sete filhos de Camillo Rea, um imigrante italiano proprietário de uma cadeia de geladeiras, e da esposa de este, Winifred, de origem irlandesa, Chris Rea foi criado num ambiente de forte tradição familiar e religiosa. Seu avô paterno, também chamado Camillo, morreu quando o Arandora Star, navio no qual navegava para o Canadá, foi afundado durante a II Guerra Mundial pelo submarino alemão U-47 sob o comando do tenente Günther Prien. Em consequência, foi-lhe incutido desde criança o culto aos ancestrais e o gosto pela música popular.

A voz de Rea é uma de suas principais características, sendo de tonalidade grave (possivelmente baritônica) semelhante às dos vocalistas Barry White ou Tom Waits. Segundo o próprio Chris Rea, ser um cantor nunca tinha sido uma de suas metas musicais, confessando que preferia ter sido o letrista e guitarrista, antes de ser o líder de uma banda. Por outra parte, no inicio de sua carreira, os produtores musicais trataram de ressaltar a sua faceta de cantor melódico, imagem que tem perdurado em boa parte das formas de promoção do artista, apesar dele rejeitar isso.
