The scoop: Christopher posts new creations here—mostly music, but also the occasional original article, illustrated poem or music video—every month. (His new music tracks are also usually available everywhere across the Web, although you can usually download them here for free.) His new Earthsongs album has just been released, along with a brand new music video of Halcyon Day from the album! He’s also been releasing tracks from a forthcoming collection of early songs and recordings called The Basement Tapes. You can check out both of them below!
Please stop by every month to see and hear what’s new—and if you like what you find, please share it with your friends! New projects will be announced soon!
Christopher’s new Earthsongs CD is out!
If you’ve been following the album’s progress via this website, then you’ve already heard many (or all) or the tracks on the CD. The physical discs are now available for purchase at CDBaby.com.
We conducted an informal poll to see which tracks were most popular, to decide which ones I’ll leave posted here as a teaser/free sample for newcomers. The winners were Sweet Dream Bay, At the Insect Bite Cafe and Garden in the Sky! You can listen to them below!
In case you missed it, the album release party at the Lemont Village Green on Friday, July 6th was a rousing success!
Thanks to Sue and Ron Smith, sound man Jim Thorn and everyone else who helped to make it happen! (The event was recorded and videotaped, so we’ll be reviewing the results and eventually posting some excerpts.)
Of note, I premiered a new song, Juggling Infinity, and it was a rousing success! Hope to get that one recorded and produced soon!
Just released: The new music video Halcyon Day!
The Basement Tapes!
This tune, called Birthday Song, was written in college for a young woman who was just an acquaintance, but for whom I had great respect. I found out she was celebrating her 20th birthday, and this song came to me in a moment of inspiration. I’m not sure if I ever played it for her, since we were just acquaintances, but I’m sure she would have enjoyed it. (I hope you do, too!)
