Chris Bathgate

Chris Bathgate is one of the greatest contemporary songwriters to come out of the Mitten State.

The Michigan singer-songwriter released his excellent full-length album, The Significance of Peaches, via Ann Arbor’s Quite Scientific Records in 2022.

During his Live on WDET in-studio session, Bathgate performed intimate, stripped-down versions of songs from that album, including “Sweet Fern” and “Bruises.” Bathgate is joined in-studio by Samantha Cooper and Graham Parsons.
