From start to finish, each song builds on the last and creates a great listening atmosphere. He tackles complex issues, yet manages to make the music very simple. If you haven’t seen him live, check him out. EVEN BETTER!”
The Albuquerque Journal

“I believe that we are all too often surrounded by and immersed in negative thought and the energy that is thought, and wonder why we are so fear filled.

“Living in the Now is a superb collection of catchy songs that sound both modern and classic at the same time. You find yourself singing along to the choruses even on the first listen. Chris is a great songwriter with a strong, unique voice. As a bonus, the quality of the recording is unsurpassed. It’s evident that Chris spared no expense pouring his heart and time into this project. Really, really good stuff.”
Greg, MI

“Living in the Now has some of the best songwriting of our generation. Reminds me of the great American singer songwriters (Neil Young, Cat Stevens, etc..) with a modern twist. The lyrics dive into modern day topics around self actualization. Overall refreshing entertainment, enlighten and inspirational—a rare find!

“Chris Chickering’s music has always spoke to my soul. His desire to make a positive impact vibrationally with uplifting, positing and empowering music is amazing. Like Cat Stevens the sound of his voice resonates in your mind as it is unique to the ears. Always stretching himself personally, you can expect his music to do the same! One of my personal favorites on this album is “Vibration,” a song I’m sure everyone can relate to at some point in their life.” (“The Resurrection of Me”)
