““ Singer-songwriter Chris Chickering’s sophomore album, Living in the Now, is a record with transformative lyrics, and will speak to anyone on a spiritual path.””
““(“Living in the Now”) is a superb collection of catchy songs that sound both modern and classic at the same time. You find yourself singing along to the choruses even on the first listen. Chris is a great songwriter with a strong, unique voice. As a bonus, the quality of the recording is unsurpassed. Really, really good stuff.””
““I remember hearing your song when Deepak Chopra spoke at the “Celebrate Your Life” conference in Chicago. (“Reinvent Yourself”)”
"Chris is tuned into what we need now, with universal lyrics of empowerment, backed by a studio band that is powerful and tight in all of the compositions.” — Alan Hutner
““It was easy to find lots of songs to play off this terrific release. Chris has musical vision and has created a unique and unified album.” ("Living in the Now") - Ira Gordon, Program Director, 98.1 Radio Free Santa Fe, NM - Ira Gordon, Program Director, 98.1 Radio Free Santa Fe”
“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.”
“Chris's new album 'Shine' is a total home run! I could listen to this album over and over. Chris's sultry, soulful voice draws you in, and his engaging and uplifting lyrics create a spark that lights the fire of desire for following your own dreams.”
"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!"
