Chip Rishell is a newcomer to the internet music scene, although he has been honing his unique sound for the past twenty years.

Some of those include: Neil Young, the Bee Gees, Edgar Allan Poe, Harry Chapin, Van Morrison, Jim Croce, Don McLean, George Jones, The Highwaymen, Jerry Garcia, Mark Knopfler, and Don Fagen. Chips' goal is to produce a sound that crosses genres and sparks emotion in those who hear it. Does he succeed? Listen and be the judge.
