My New Album, Slow Burn, Is Here!


Well, it happened much sooner than I actually thought it would — my new album, “Slow Burn,” is now available for download on iTunes here, and at Amazon here!¬† It’s the culmination of several months of writing, recording, mixing and MIDI programming.

It’s funny how things build momentum — like I mentioned in my last post, six or seven months ago, I probably wouldn’t have taken seriously the idea of playing the “lead singer” role in performing pop or rock material, which (having grown up in the ’80s) I associated with a lot of Spandex, preening and posturing that didn’t really suit my personality.

But I kept hearing from people (and by “people” I don’t just mean “my Mom,” although she was one of them) how much they enjoyed hearing me sing the songs, and I decided I wanted to try performing my own material at least once, just so I wouldn’t end up wondering what it would have sounded like.

As for the style, I’d call it a quirky hybrid of rock, country, musical theater and mid-to-late ’80s video game console music. ¬†Whatever else might be said about it, it’s definitely unique.

If you get the album, I hope you enjoy the tunes, and I look forward to hearing any feedback you might have (constructive or otherwise).

P.S. — you can listen to one of the complete songs, “At War,” here.

    Thanks Jill. I’m really glad I released it and I’m also conscious of how much more work I need to do in order to get my music “out there” to the extent I want it to be.

    You definitely have the voice for it, Chris. Congratulations! Like your title (slow burn) and I think you picked the right cover for it, too. (Thought I should tell you that since I didn’t make it over when you asked for everyone to weigh in on the options).

    Thanks Alarna — I’m glad you liked the cover. We certainly suffered for our art — it was late December on Ocean Beach in San Francisco, which sounds like it would be a warm place by winter standards but definitely was not. But it was well worth it.

    Thanks Ruth — yes, that was one of my first forays into a more traditional folk- or country-style “story song,” and I’m glad it worked for you.
