Worship leader, songwriter, and author Chris Blanton draws from his wide variety of life-experiences to communicate stories of hope, failure, and redemption.
Chasing his dreams, Chris and Laura uprooted from the 8 years they taught music lessons in Athens, Georgia to relocate to the Orlando area. He is now the contemporary worship leader and director of worship bands for First Baptist Oviedo.
Chris Blanton has released 5 albums and published a book!
"Six Hymns" reminds us of a time when people used to just "set around" and play music. Relax on the front porch swing and hum along to classics like "Lord I'm Coming Home" and "In The Sweet By And By".
"I AM With You" is a collection of songs written to Humanity from God's perspective, and is Chris's first Kickstarter album fully funded by upfront donations.
"Listen To The Rain" was recorded at the same Atlanta-area studio as some fairly well-known Christian artists: DecembeRadio, Echoing Angels, After Edmund. This album not only 'sounds like radio' but also offers listeners a lyrical journey to enjoy life with Creator God.
In Blanton's devotional book "Today I Choose: An 18-Day Prayer Guide for Believers", Chris encourages readers to actively spend time in the Word. This prayer journal based on his song of the same title, dissects each phrase of the song, provides supporting Scriptures, and offers readers a sample prayer.
The "Today I Choose" CD includes eleven songs of hope, ranging from simple acoustic-and-voice to full-band production. There's a little bit of everything on this one: worship, country, gospel, even a twist of R&B.
And his "Fireside Christmas" CD is a seasonal Acoustic album featuring Blanton's comfort with the simple goodness of a guitar and solo voice. There's even a little bit of harmonica!
