His musical talents and interests are likely what set him down the path that led him here, but many don't even know about these talents. You see, Chris Fillmore is a man of mystery to many. Those who work with him will tell you he is a workaholic that likes the Utah Jazz and has an extensive collection of button up Performance Audio shirts. If you are lucky to know Chris on a personal level, you know that he is one of the best people around with many interests outside of work.
Chris grew up loving music and has always had a natural gift for it. He can play the piano, saxophone, violin, flute and drums. He also plays a mean nose-flute. During high school he was involved with the band and stage crew. It was around then that he started working at Pegasus Records. Chris began working at Performance Audio in 1989. He became a part owner in 2002. He is certified in Avid, Logic, Waves and is very knowledgeable at ProTools.
His favorite musical artist has always been Prince. In fact, his first record was Dirty Mind by Prince. His first concert was John Denver at Sundance. Chris also loves movies, his collection is somewhere between 4000-5000 movies and takes up an entire room.
Chris was born in American Fork and raised in Lehi, Utah. Growing up, his dad taught him to hunt and fish. Today he enjoys fly fishing on the Provo and Green rivers and you can find Chris at the gun club with his family on the weekend. He participates in trap tournaments every year, and has even shot a perfect 100! When he isn't at work or the gun club, he spends his time at home trying out new recipes on his smoker. Darrin and Chris have taken this up as a hobby and will swap recipes and ideas. Everyone enjoys Chris's food inventions.
When he was younger, he and his mom would go to Jazz games together. That was the beginning of Chris's love of the Jazz and his 30 years of season tickets. Chris has always been close with his family. He has four siblings and a gaggle of nieces and nephews that adore him. He enjoys traveling and has been to Panama and all over Europe, but his most favorite vacation was an Alaskan Cruise he took with his family. He also has a pet pug named Maya, but most people know her as Turds.
Chris is a major part of what makes Performance Audio what it is today. His technical knowledge and business savvy have helped him grow this company to where it is now.
