Born on September 16, 1958, Chris Eaton grew up in the West Midlands of England, influenced by music ranging from Deep Purple to Cliff Richard, a diversity that would serve him well during his career as a singer, songwriter, and producer. He was a member of the band Lyrix in the ‘80s, but left, eventually issuing a solo record, Vision, in 1986. Following its release, Eaton shifted his focus to less prominent, yet intrinsic roles in the music industry. As a songwriter, his songs have been performed and recorded by a myriad of Christian artists, including Susan Ashton and Margaret Becker, as well as numerous notable artists in other genres such as Sheena Easton, Vince Gill, and Boney James. Eaton also provided backing vocals on a number of records, including releases by Michael English, Twila Paris, and Michael W. Smith. In 1995, his Wonderful World album fond favor with the fans in the Christian market, buoyed by the track "Everlasting Love." Since then, Eaton has issued a third solo release, 1998's What Kind Of Love, which included tracks co-written with Amy Grant.
