Lasting Riot is an alias created by Christopher Dumond for his metal music he writes and performs. He is excited to try and better his skills for music and other things by going to school in Fall 2019 for Audio Production as well as getting certified in Pro Tools.
The Westie Music Project
At The After Party 2019 Chris was the head of a new idea from Event Director Demetre Souliotes. Demetre wanted to make a unique live music experience and trusted Chris produce, collaborate, and perform with other Westie Artists for attendees to dance to. This format will be at The After Party again in 2020 but possibly other events in the future.
Chris isn’t just a metalhead, he enjoys creating many things from big string ballads to singer/songwritter and folk feeling songs. He is self taught in everything he creates and still learns on the daily about new ways to create and manipulate sounds for his music.
Music has always been very special to Chris because of the journey sound is able to take people. Sometimes to places words can’t express and that is fascinating. He hopes to one day be able to make people find that feeling in his music.
