At the age of 14, Chris Litz started on his musical journey. Within a few years, he was playing the local music scene in Austin, TX. By 19 he was involved in three different short-lived projects. He felt that something was missing from the music. After two more dead-end projects, it was time for a change. This was a chance to focus on learning, writing, and developing an identity as a guitarist. After a short break, a new heavy dual guitar riffing machine formed. Chris pushed for the music to progressively become heavier, but the band split up after several years due to typical musical indifferences. Next, it was time to experiment with the industrial side of metal which lasted for a year or so. And the familiar feeling of something missing crept in. He then began writing in unexplored territory that would now be classified as new age music. This is where he learned to let go of writing constraints to standard song structure. After several years metal was pouring out into his writing again. And from lessons learned in past projects, this time it would be all about writing without boundaries. In late 2016 Chris had an epiphany to combine his brand of new age music with his passion for metal into a unique blend. Soon afterward Seventh Legend was born.
Joey Litz began playing drums at the age of fifteen, playing covers of his favorite ’80s hair bands. In high school, he joined his first band playing alternative rock with a blend of originals and covers. While watching MTV in the early ’90s, he saw how double-bass drumming was being used in metal – and from that point, he knew exactly which direction to take his drumming. His passion for the drums led him to play with some great local musicians, and now he is forging a new path with Seventh Legend.
