Growing up surrounded by music, it was almost inevitable that Chris Hornbrook would become a musician.  At the age of twelve, Chris began playing the drums.

A mere four years later, Chris Hornbrook was already performing at local shows in the Southern Florida area.  Chris Hornbrook's first band, Last Minute, featured Ryan Primack on bass.  It was through Ryan that Chris was asked to join the band, Poison The Well.

While still in high school, Chris Hornbrook was touring the United States. Last Minute toured mostly during summer, winter, and spring break.  Occasionally, however, Chris would skip Fridays in order to play weekend shows.

After graduation, Chris Hornbrook dedicated his life to drumming and a career in music. He’s still drumming for Poison The Well as they tour and release albums.
He has also toured with Trash Talk.
