Chris Bullock Biography
Chris Bullock is a Singer / Songwriter / Producer / Artist / Actor and frontman for Pop/Rock band New Stellar Star. Chris has been writing and performing since he was a child.

While in Vancouver he performed at several popular musical venues in and around Vancouver including the Media Club and recorded a currently unreleased solo acoustic record.
With an abundance of material Chris finally decided to record a fully produced band record. As luck would have it Chris would be invited to the Goo Goo Doll's studio where he would record his first EP over an intense seven day period.
