As a finalist on the hit NBC television series “The Voice,” Chris
captured the hearts of millions while drawing the respect of
multi-platinum talents such as Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo. Following
his many dynamic live performances on the show, Aguilera told him, “I
feel the heavens open up when you sing.” America agreed, and when
the series ended, Chris had not one, but two songs on the iTunes Top 10
Pop Singles Chart.
Influenced by Pavarotti, Robbie Williams and vintage Sinatra, Chris’
blend of classically-trained tenor and contemporary pop vocals is a
sound that’s rare in music today. Said Cee Lo, “He is by far one of the
most incomparable vocalists I have ever heard”
This classical crossover artist is set to release his Christmas EP on
October 9 and his full-length major label debut album on October 30.
Although many of the songs on Roads are covers, I found them beautiful and refreshing. It’s hard for me to even pick a favorite, because the songs were all so beautiful, but The Blower’s Daughter was one of my favorites, along with Falling.
My teen daughter has actually confiscated my CD because she likes it so much, so I’ve been playing it from my iTunes playlist. I’ve already listened to this album several times, it’s soothing sound is perfect when I want to relax or just have clean, peaceful music playing in the background.
This album will most definitely be making it into many of my friends and family’s Christmas presents this year, as it is a must have!
