about

Chris Chickering’s 4th studio release, "The Better Side" features 4 new, original tracks, plus Chris' cover of the classic Rolling Stones' ballad, "No Expectations."

ABOUT:
We all have times we feel lost and can’t see the path before us. Chris Chickering is a singer-songwriter/producer whose songs shine a light on that path through messages of hope, healing and empowerment. Since 2012 he has recorded six studio albums: Shine (2012), Living in the Now (2013), The Resurrection of Me (2014), The Better Side (2015), Regeneration (2015), and The Hero’s Journey (fall, 2017).

Fueled by a desire to empower himself and others, Chris has always found music to be a refuge for guidance and inspiration, especially during his most challenging times. 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 music.

PERSONAL STATEMENT:
Music is my oldest friend, the one I could always count on to soothe my spirit and deliver guidance, especially during the hard times.

As a kid, I remember listening intently to the lyrics of great singer-songwriters like Cat Stevens, Neil Young, Jim Croce and Harry Chapin, and to bands like The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Doors and The Beatles, feeling peace and calm.

As a young man, trying to find my way in the world, I gravitated toward personal-growth books, programs and seminars to help answer the question,“Why am I here?”

BIO CONTINUED:
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 lifting people’s spirits through music. Since then they have co-written over one hundred songs and joined forces on five studio albums.

“MY MISSION IS TO UNITE AND HEAL HEARTS THROUGH MUSIC.”
– CHRIS CHICKERING

Chris connects with audiences at public and privately hosted events worldwide, as a soloist and with his band. He is currently gearing up for the release of his sixth studio album, The Hero’s Journey which was recorded in June 2017. Chris is a fitness freak and yogi. In his free time he enjoys hiking with his dog Chili in the beautiful mountains of his hometown Santa Fe, New Mexico, and of course songwriting.
