Apr 26, 2013 — New York City has always held a special place in the American imagination. For generations, it has inspired more than its fair share of musical dreams.
Christopher Battles is hoping to make his mark as an acoustic singer/songwriter. He graduated from the Crane School of Music a couple of years ago and moved from his upstate hometown -- Oswego -- to New York City. He studied percussion and music education at Crane, and when he's not busking at a subway stop or on stage at a coffee house, he's a substitute band teacher.
Christopher Battles joined Todd Moe in the studio for music and conversation. We've followed his musical journey last year via a series of audio postcards, and he shared some of his favorite tunes.
