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

“I recommend Chris Chickering’s music as an instrumental part of the healing process. His beautiful, soothing voice and uplifting lyrics will be an inspiration and comfort for those in recovery.”
– Margie Ahern, M.Ed., Mindfulness Rational Therapist

“If you’re sick of all the popular music out there that focuses on things like sadness, anger, suicide, abusive relationships, drug addiction and meaningless sexual relations, you’ll find singer-songwriter Chris Chickering’s album Living in the Now to be a welcome change…Even those listeners who don’t pay a great deal of attention to lyrics will have their spirits raised by this album, as the sound on its own is enough to generate an atmosphere of happiness.”
– The Mindful Word Magazine
