 WELCOME to christopherkent.com!

Christopher posts new creations here every month—mostly music, but also the occasional original article, illustrated poem or music video. (His new music tracks are also usually available everywhere across the Web, although you can usually download them here for free.) Recently, he’s been releasing tracks from three brand new album projects: Wild IdeasThe Heart Chronicles and a Christmas album, Songs of the Season. You can listen to and/or download most of those tracks below. You’ll also find a collection of Fan Favorites, for those of you visiting for the first time! He’s also publishing a new feature called Resources for Sanity and Survival, with new additions every month or two. 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!

This month I’m offering two new items for your consideration and enjoyment. First, because our democracy is in the greatest danger it’s been in since the founding of our country, I’ve written a new commentary that I hope will shed some light on the situation: Democracy in Crisis, 2020: An unconventional perspective about how we got here—and what might come next. (Click on the title below to read it.)
Second — perhaps less exciting, but hopefully enjoyable nonetheless — I’m releasing another new track from my forthcoming HEART CHRONICLES album: Turning Away. Unlike last month’s witty song, this one is from the sadder, second act of the collection. I think in many ways it’s one of my most beautiful songs. I hope you enjoy it!

Democracy in Crisis, 2020:  An unconventional perspective about how we got here—and what might come next.

And for your listening pleasure:

As those of you who’ve read my book Staying Off the Wheel of Misfortune know, I’ve always been a student of human behavior, and I’m always on the lookout for insights and useful advice to incorporate into my books and songs. I’m dipping into that reservoir once again to share some of the most helpful advice I’ve found for dealing with situations of great uncertainty, stress and loss.

How to Stay Sane During Massive Change

Strategies for maintaining peace of mind and staying effective in the midst of world upheaval.

Songs of Peace, Hope, Joy and Grace

A dozen songs from Christopher’s first four albums that can help you stay calm and hopeful in challenging times.

A Quorum of Pithy Quotes for Pandemic Quarantine!

A collection of wise and witty quotes from Einstein, Groucho Marx, Bozo the Clown, Robert Frost, H.G. Wells, George Carlin, Mark Twain, Andy Rooney and many, many more!

Yes, We’re In the Midst of a Crisis. Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Lose Hope

In nature, change happens in cycles that include a periodic collapse like the one we’re going through right now. If we’re lucky, whatever happens in the next couple of years will leave us with a stronger democracy and a country better able to achieve its highest ideals.

Solving the Unsolvable

Sometimes solving the toughest problems requires solving a meta-problem first.

Marching Toward Waterloo

Today’s tyrants and dictators (both established and aspiring) are about to face the same enemy that really defeated Napoleon – and it wasn’t an opposing army.
