Unlike Siouxsie and Emily, Chris is a West Coast transplant who hails from the Midwest. Fortunately for Dead Sara fans, he moved on from his prior occupations as a billiard player and house flipper to pursue his musical career in Los Angeles.
Since he was a guitar player, Emily and Siouxsie didn’t initially consider him as an option for a permanent bass player. That quickly changed once the band got together and wrote Weatherman in their first jam session together. Chris loves to express himself through his poetry and word expressions on his Tumblr account which you can access here. (burnhamlester.tumblr.com)
