Chris's 1st studio release: "Shine" (2012) features 9 new, original songs plus Chris' take on the classic Cat Stevens' ballad: "Father & Son."
Chris Chickering is a singer-songwriter and inspired storyteller from Santa Fe, New Mexico who has recorded five studio albums (“Shine” “Living in the Now” “The Resurrection of Me” “The Better Side” “Regeneration"). Chris’ music is an invitation to self-discovery, reflection and transformational thinking. Growing up in San Francisco, Chris was influenced by artists like Cat Stevens, Neil Young, Train and The Rolling Stones and moved by the humanitarian efforts of singer-songwriter Harry Chapin, to create his own unique message-driven rock music.
Chris’ “Music for Positive Change” speaks to the deeper relationship we can have with ourselves and others, encouraging self-actualization and humanitarian participation, while bringing people together in joy, love, and compassion.
No matter who you are or where you are on your life’s journey, Chris Chickering’s universal songs and live performance are guaranteed to speak to you as if you are the only one listening.
