From the mind of Chris Rupp, founder of Home Free and the “Chris Rupp Project,” comes a brand new vocal quartet that is ready to forge a new identity in the music world.  Each member has a unique musical and performance background, allowing for exciting possibilities. Combining elements of pop, swing, rockabilly, country, and much more, 7th Ave is aiming to reinvent and uproot the standard definitions of all of those genres through our innovative arrangements and fun music videos.

Chris was the founder and musical director of the country vocal band Home Free for 15 years, and is now taking his skills and talents to his latest and greatest project, 7th Ave.  Chris was born and raised in Mankato, MN and spent his whole life surrounded by music, as his mother is a professional musician as well.  He graduated with a degree in music from Minnesota State University – Mankato, and spent the next decade teaching piano, guitar, and voice privately while at the same time working to build Home Free into the sensation that it is today, highlighted by their 2013 Season 4 victory on The Sing-Off.  He has collaborated with such artists as Kenny Rogers, The Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels, Kira Isabella, Taylor Davis, Peter Hollens, Nick Lachey, Jewel, Patrick Stump, and Shawn Stockman. He also has released his own solo album of original music, Shine, as well as a collection of classical piano pieces.

Currently dwelling in New York City, Adam was born and raised in a tiny town in Michigan. Adam began singing at the early age of 12, mostly in the form of duets with Celine Dion…well, Celine’s compact discs…and he went on to study music at the University of Michigan – Flint. He has traveled much of the world as a singer on cruise ships, and lent his talents to several a cappella groups including The Alleycats, Blue Jupiter, and Home Free. Eventually, Adam made his way to the Big Apple where he is now singing for a live music production company, Element Music. Adam has performed for and with some of today’s most iconic performers including Paul McCartney, Lionel Richie and Bette Midler. He is beyond happy to be a part of this new adventure with 7th Ave!

Tristin comes from the very musical Rupp family. She earned  her BFA degree in Musical Theatre from Minnesota State University, Mankato. She now pursues singing, acting, and dancing in Los Angeles. You may have seen her on “Criminal Minds,” the film “About Last Night” with Kevin Hart, and the popular TV show, “Shark Tank.” She also teaches dance fitness classes all around southern CA and co-operates an on-line dance fitness channel called, “TnT Dance Factory.” She is a co-director, co-choreographer, and co-musical director for children’s musicals all around the greater Los Angeles area with the production company, Encore Arts. She also tours the world with the award winning “Haute Chile Productions,” providing tailored high-end events for private, society, corporate, and celebrity clients. Tristin has modeled for Target, Aveda, Wella, Best Buy, and for Suzanne Summers on ShopNBC among others. She has appeared in a national Great Clips commercial, and did a promo for American Idol.  You could say she’s kinda busy.
