Chris connects with audiences at public and privately hosted events worldwide, as a soloist and with his band. He is currently gearing up for production on his sixth studio album, featuring ten original songs focused on our shared humanity. Chris enjoys bodybuilding, yoga, sleight-of-hand magic and hiking the beautiful mountains of New Mexico with his dog Chili.
Great music starts with great songs. In the fall of 2012 Chris Chickering and three time Emmy-winning, Grammy-nominated songwriter Greg Barnhill (“Walkaway Joe,” “House of Love”), discovered their shared passion for raising consciousness through music. Since then they have co-written over one hundred songs and joined forces on four studio albums.
Creating music for personal growth and positive change has been a life-long project for Chris who founded Guru Authority™ (www.GuruAuthority.com
) where he represented thought leaders in the fields of health, wealth, relationships and spirituality. His songs are infused with wisdom gained from these leaders, along with insights from the fields of psychology and peak-performance.
Chris has collaborated with a number highly acclaimed producers, engineers, songwriters and musicians—including Ron Cohen (Saturday Night Live, The Sopranos), Greg Bieck (Kenny G, Lionel Richie), Mills Logan (Taylor Swift, Art Garfunkel) Brian Hardgroove (Public Enemy) and John Kurzweg (Creed, Jewel).
For each of his albums, Chris has recruited ‘dream teams’ of musicians including: Mike Durham – guitar (Dave Matthews), Vail Johnson – bass (Kenny G, Herbie Hancock), Dennis Matkosky – B3 organ & piano (“Maniac,” “You’ll Think of Me”), Jimmy Wallace – keys (The Wallflowers, Gavin DeGraw), Ilya Tochinskiy – banjo & mandolin (Carrie Underwood, James Blunt), Tim Lauer – accordion (Cheap Trick), Ben Phillips – drums (Blake Shelton) and Jim Hoke – harmonica (Bob Seger, Cheryl Crow).
