about

“The Crazy Crazy Ones” is Chris Chickering’s ballad that encourages people to follow their dreams. The music video stars 53 of the most inspiring people of all time.

ABOUT:
We all have times we feel lost and can’t see the path before us. Chris Chickering is a singer-songwriter whose music shines a light on that path, through messages of hope, healing and empowerment. Since 2012 he has recorded six studio albums (Site/iTunes): 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 reliable refuge for guidance and inspiration, especially during his darkest days. 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.

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.

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).

lyrics

Here's to the crazy ones
Who made their own design
The ones that even when you told them
They'd still draw outside the lines

They are the trouble makers
The round pegs in square holes
And they're not too keen on doing what they're told
But they've changed us for the better, don't you know

Here's to the fighters
The ones who thought too much
The ones that dared to turn their dreams
Into something we could touch

The backroom innovators
Who just wouldn't it give up
The ones who ventured out into the cosmic swirl
Here's to the ones that change the world

Here's to the speakers
Who moved our hearts and minds
The ones that went against the grain
Even if it meant their lives

The rebels and the misfits
Who saw the things to come
And made it better living on this earth
Here's to the ones that change the world
Here's to the ones that change the world
