Hello world!

With a little help from my friends, I have made inspired music for many years. In assembling this website, I thought of all the thrilling talents who have given their hearts, energy and skill to me so generously. To christen the site, I salute them here, listed by album and year. I love them all, as well as those who listen to the music we make! Thank you one & all. Chris
