Legend is perhaps one of the most overused terms in the critical lexicon. Should you want to become a legend, the rule to follow is simply to refuse to go away. Longevity, whether welcomed or not, is the criterion used to determine who receives the prestigious distinction and who is delegated to VH1 specials. This leads to far too many aging, so-called "legends" lurking in our consciousness and trying to make yet another dollar by exploiting the history that got them where they are today.

  No demerits for DemeanorPDF files may take a moment to load

Chameleon of the local music scene, Kris Demeanor has a more varied repertoire than freaks at a circus. Praised across the country for his originality and ability to make extraordinary music from the ordinary happenings of life, Demeanor is a musician able to do anything.

It's impossible to describe Demeanor's sound without the words "varied" and "diverse". It's what happens when you mix rap, country, blues and folk-rock into an eclectic mix.
