“Every generation produces a few artists who speak from the soul in such a way that their music will transcend time. 
Chris Chickering speaks from the soul, and takes the listener to a place of covered bridges and tree canopied winding back roads. 
Chris has amazing talent.”
– iTunes reviewer

“Chris Chickering’s music can change your life in so many positive ways.”
– Bob Proctor…Speaker, Author

“It’s a rare occasion in this day when an artist can pull of a complete album of great songs. Chris’s new album, “Shine,” does just that. 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. And throwing in a cover song always works for me. If you haven’t seen him live, check him out. EVEN BETTER!”
– The Albuquerque Journal

“Chris’s new album ‘Shine’ is a total home run! Chris’s sultry, soulful voice draws you in, and his engaging and uplifting lyrics create a spark that lights the fire of desire for following your own dreams.”
– iTunes reviewer

“Chris Chickering herein creates an atmosphere of genuine lyrical emotion and soul, encompassed within a lovely aesthetic of inspiring instrumentals. These tracks manage to be both undeniably catchy yet curiously therapeutic. Highly recommended and not to be missed.”
– Amazon.com reviewer
