Kristopher Lee Roe (born January 12, 1977 in Anderson, Indiana) is a singer, guitarist and songwriter in the alternative rock band The Ataris who formed in 1994. The Ataris released their fifth full length album "Welcome the Night" on February 20, 2007 on the band's own imprint Isola Recordings through the Sanctuary Group.


He plays guitar left-handed and is known for playing an upside-down, right-handed Les Paul, which many wrongly believe is similar to a style made famous by guitarist Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix actually strung the guitar to be correct for a left-handed guitarist, whereas Roe leaves the strings upside down. Roe is in fact right-handed, contrary to popular belief.
Roe cites Douglas Coupland, Nick Hornby, Irvine Welsh and Charles Bukowski, as influences. "In a lot of my lyrics," Kris reveals, "I like to encode a lot of hidden messages... I like our audience to read into things. Writing should be very in depth, very detailed. Every essence of the moment should be described."[citation needed]
Kristopher is also an art photographer and has taken many of the photographs in The Ataris records. He has stated that he hopes to eventually publish a book of his photographs in the near future
