CHRIS JASPER was an integral member of the chart-topping "3 + 3 era" ISLEY BROTHERS during the 1970s and 1980s—their gold and platinum years—from the "3 + 3" to "Between the Sheets" albums. It was during this time that CHRIS JASPER, along with younger Isley Brothers, ERNIE ISLEY and MARVIN ISLEY, added the songwriting and musical component to the older Isley Brothers' vocal trio (Rudolph, O'Kelly & Ronald Isley), making the "3+3 era" ISLEY BROTHERS a self-produced, self-contained R&B/funk band.
CHRIS JASPER was primarily responsible for writing and arranging the majority of the Isley Brothers' music during this time including such beautiful love songs as “For The Love of You”, "Don't Say Goodnight" and “Between the Sheets” and uptempo funk such as “Fight the Power”, "Live It Up", "The Pride", and "Showdown" and the list goes on and on. His arrangements and instrumentation as a classically-trained musician, and his expertise on the keyboards and synthesizers, have been called the foundation of the unique and legendary “Isley Brothers Sound” of the "3 + 3 era"
CHRIS JASPER, MARVIN ISLEY and ERNIE ISLEY subsequently formed the spin-off group ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY (IJI) and CHRIS penned and sang lead vocals on the #1 R&B hit "Caravan of Love", a song that was covered by English recording group, the Housemartins, making it an international #1 pop hit.
CHRIS JASPER brings his "unique sound" to his own solo projects, releasing 10 solo albums for his independent record label GOLD CITY MUSIC.
CHRIS JASPER continues this musical tradition with his new release, "THE ONE" ...the title track from his forthcoming CD, a collection of lush ballads and up-tempo funk reminiscent of the music he wrote and recorded for the ISLEY BROTHERS and ISLEY-JASPER-ISLEY.
CHRIS JASPER lives in New York with his wife of 31 years, Margie, and their three sons, Christopher, Nicholas, and 20-year old recording artist Michael Jasper, the latest addition to the Gold City roster.
