Album Notes
Chris Chickering is a recording artist/singer-songwriter/producer whose deepest wish is for everyone to truly embrace and live in their greatness. As founder of Music for Positive Change™, Chris has a vision for leveraging the power of music to lift people’s spirits and bring them together to create a better world.

Chris Chickering’s vocals share the same fiery, organic DNA of recordings by Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp, John Hiatt and Van Morrison. His music infuses folk, rock and world music influences with lyrics that speak to timeless, universal truths and motivate positive change.

Chris sees songwriting and performing as a powerful catalyst for connecting people through universal topics such as compassion, forgiveness, love, hope and acceptance. Chris delivers his message by being an integral part of Peace Conferences, Spiritual Centers, Personal Development Retreats and Cause-related Events globally.

Enlightened and humbled by his own trials and tribulations, Chris reminds audience that the joy is in the journey to self-discovery. It’s a lifelong process that unfolds over a lifetime; however major changes can happen with every new insight. Chris’ message is clear, “Wake up! It’s never too late for anyone to manifest their dreams!”

Chris has a life-long fascination with consciousness and has spent years studying psychology, hypnosis, peak performance and personal development books, media, and seminars, as well as, exploring religious texts and ancient myths from every corner of the world. He actively seeks out and listens to wise people to find deeper universal truths that lie at the root of the human condition and what unifies us.

Chris’ music speaks to the deeper relationship we can have with both ourselves and others. The music asks us to believe in ourselves and remind us that it’s never too late to follow the path of our highest self.

As a boy, Chris had a vision of himself onstage while singing and playing positive and upbeat tunes. Chris began playing guitar at 16 and has never looked back, playing covers at parties, busking his way around the world, and dreaming of creating a record. After a 5 year stint in Nashville working in television; Chris’ life imploded and with nothing left to lose he packed up his gear and his dog and fulfilled a dream by moving to Santa Fe.

While unpacking, Chris found a bucket list he wrote in high school. At the top was: “create a music album.” He almost filed the list away, as he had done many times before, but a voice from deep inside stopped him. So with only two original songs under his belt, Chris decided it was time to begin by producing one of them. He had so much fun with the process that he kept writing and producing, until he realized, “Hey! I’m making that record.” Chris’s debut release “Shine,” is now available everywhere music is sold.

Chris is currently gearing up to go on tour after the fall (2013) release of his second studio album, “Living in the Now,” featuring 14 new and original songs and produced by Grammy nominated, Emmy award winner Greg Barnhill.

In his spare time, Chris enjoys hanging with his dog Chili, working-out, and hiking in the beautiful mountains of his hometown Santa Fe, New Mexico.

"It's a rare occasion in this day when an artist can pull of a complete album of great songs. Chris's new album, "Shine," does just that. From start to finish, each song builds on the last and creates a great listening atmosphere. He tackles complex issues, yet manages to make the music very simple. And throwing in a cover song always works for me. If you haven't seen him live, check him out. EVEN BETTER!"
- The Albuquerque Journal

"Chris Chickering's music can change your life in so many positive ways."
- Bob Proctor
(Speaker, author and star of the Movie: The Secret)

"Every generation produces a few artists who speak from the soul in such a way that their music will transcend time.
Shine speaks from the soul, and takes the listener to a place of covered bridges and tree canopied winding back roads."
- iTunes Reviewer

"This upbeat and soulful music has the positive vibes of Bob Marley. It offers a positive message and hope in response to dark times. I'm enjoying this one now and look forward to the next collection."
