“Living In The Now offers listeners in music and songwriting what sages and mystics were carving in stone and have been writing about for eons; essential messages of awakening. Chris is tuned into what we need now, with universal lyrics of empowerment, backed by a studio band that is powerful and tight in all of the compositions.”
– Alan Hutner, Host and Co-producer of Transitions Radio Magazine
“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!
– Amazon.com reviewer
