Influenced by Velvet Underground, Motown, and post-punk, Lost American is a project created by Chris Kelley, who is an American singer/musician living in Barcelona, Spain. Kelley started making music when he was three, playing along with a Temptations record on his toy piano. After studying classical piano as a boy, he shifted to drums and guitar just as the post punk era was ramping up. He fronted the band Chapel of Roses when he was 18 in his hometown Nashville, Tennessee and toured across the Southern US with the band. After releasing a 12" vinyl record, the band broke up. For a while he had a band called Saint Christopher in Los Angeles. Kelley eventually finished university, became a programmer, got a job, traveled a lot. He kept making music all the while, and when he landed in Barcelona, he finished his first record as Lost American in 2016. He is currently finishing up the second Lost American record with his bandmates Shorn Keld of Orto Grut (keyboards) and Simon Mille (drums).
