In Chris Chesney's own unbiased opinion this is his best album yet.... Chris's 4th solo effort finds him flexing the song-writing muscle and expanding the horizons of the form, looking for a more experimental starting point for each song. The title and the chorus line drive the song's intent and from there the narrative finds it's own way.... referring to events both real and imaginary..... Production values have never been higher, but we think the emotional grit still remains. Some tracks live as possible theme tunes to an as-yet-unmade tv cop drama, others sit as rock classic of the near future.... creating their own genre ... you'll detect resonances and influences - Steve Winwood, Prince, Jeff Beck, Bowie, the Stones, Green Gartside, Lalo Schiffren and so on...... as ever the guitar usually sits at the heart of things..... Chris is a seasoned veteran of British Rock. He has also spent time in America, both East and West. His love of American music (whether roots or contemporary urban - from Aerosmith to the Neville Brothers) is a recurring theme, and these influences are all over the record. In the past, Chris has played with Freddie Mercury, Billy idol, Mandrake Memorial (featuring Randy Monaco), Ben E King, Percy Sledge, Eddie Floyd, Dorothy Moore, The Sadista Sisters, the legendary Twink of the Pink Fairies, The Flirtations, sessioned with Nicky Hopkins of Rolling Stones fame, and shared the bill with many more illustrious names from the pages of rock 'n' roll history..... Fuller biographical detail to be found on the website (see below for address) - do come and visit!! All this experience he brings to bear on every album he produces, and each project is it's own unique experiment. So expect this to differ greatly from the last and probably from what is to come. Above all he hopes this will bring you pleasure.... so enjoy!!
