Chris Chickering is a singer-songwriter, musician, lead vocalist and creator of Chris Chickering & the Now™, a band that fuses inspirational lyrics with a rousing original acoustic-rock sound. Chris is also the Founder of Music for Positive Change™, a music venture dedicated to effecting real social change by creating and performing songs infused with lyrics of hope and empowerment.

Chris’ music and live performance break down barriers and help us recognize our common humanity. His deepest wish is for you to follow your passion and live into the fullness of your being. “No matter who you are or what you are up against, it’s never too late to manifest and live out your dreams.”

Working in conjunction with multiple award-winning producers, engineers and musicians—including Emmy-winning, Grammy-nominated cowriter/producer Greg Barnhill, (“Your Day Is Today,” “Walkaway Joe” respectively) and bandleader Brian Hardgroove (Public Enemy), Chris has written over one hundred songs and completed five studio albums.

A natural entertainer and storyteller, Chris delivers his live performance on stages worldwide, as a soloist and with his band, as well as through breakthrough retreats, events and seminars.

In August 2012, Chris released his first studio album, SHINE, with two-time Emmy Award-winning producer Ron Cohen. “Shine” features 9 new, original songs as well as Cat Stevens’ classic ballad, “Father and Son.”

Following that, Chris and Greg Barnhill wrote 37 songs for Chris’ second studio album, LIVING IN THE NOW (October, 2013). Engineered by Mills Logan (4-time ACM-nominated engineer of the year who has worked with Toby Keith, Taylor Swift, and Art Garfunkle), “Living In The Now” features 14 new, original songs.

2014 kicked off with band rehearsals and regional touring. In the spring, he and Barnhill wrote 19 more songs, and teamed up with engineer Greg Bieck (who has worked with Christina Aguilera, Kenny G, Lionel Richie and John Oates) for Chris’ third studio album, THE RESURRECTION OF ME, which was released in November 2014, and features 10 new, original songs.

THE BETTER SIDE, a 5 song EP that features 4 new, original songs, plus Chris’ cover of the Rolling Stones’ “No Expectations” was released in the winter of 2015. Mixed by Greg Bieck, featuring Mike Durham (Dave Matthews) on lead guitar.

On April 26th, 2015 Chris and Greg Barnhill arrived at RedFern Recording in Nashville, TN to produce REGENERATION, Chris’ fifth studio album. Regeneration is set for distribution in summer 2015, and features 12 new, original songs.
