 Commentary On Half Way Home from Chris.

 

These songs repesent some of the many original  songs that I wrote between 1978 and 2000.Up until 2010 I played in various rock and pop and tribute bands bands,always playing guitar,harmonica and doing backing vocals.

This album,therefore, is  a record of, " where I was at " in 2010,when I made the transition from band player to solo singer-songwriter.I have picked the songs for their variety,their interest, integrity and their originality.Hopefully this shows off the unique character and individuality of my songwriting.The album does hope a general theme running through it which I will let the listener work out for him/herself.Chris.

 

 The 9 songs that made it have no effects other than a little reverb. Hopefully I've managed to give the songs a human touch and a bit of character. Let me know what you think. Chris.
