that one time when i met chris mann... {an album review}

Chris Mann Blissdom 2012-1530
{me with chris mann at blissdom 2012}

in february of this year i was blessed with the opportunity to go be a photographer at blissdom.

i honestly didn't realize the magnitude of that experience in the moment.
casey, mooshinindy, told me more than once that i was really very lucky to be experiencing all that i was experiencing in my first year at blissdom.
maybe i was able to do as much as i did because i wasn't all star struck. ya know?
i took my photog gig very seriously.
and followed casey around absorbing as much photog knowledge as i could from her.
now i'm looking back, or i have been looking back over the last few months, thinking "wow! i was a part of that!" or, "hey, i met him!"

i have a lot of "if i knew then" moments.

fast forward to today.

recently i was asked to review chris mann's new cd roads.
to be completely honest, before blissdom i had no idea who he was.
i don't watch much tv so i may have never even watched the voice had chris not been there.
he wasn't there to promote the show.
he was simply there to sing a few songs for his friends.

one of the songs he sang was the title track to his new album, roads.

here's a little info about chris mann for you...

As a finalist on the hit NBC television series “The Voice,” Chris Mann captured the hearts of millions while drawing the respect of multi-platinum talents such as Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo. Following one of his many dynamic live performances on the show, Aguilera told him, “I feel the heavens open up when you sing.” America agreed, and when the series ended, Chris had not one, but two songs on the iTunes Top 10 Pop Singles Chart.
Influenced by Pavarotti, Robbie Williams and vintage Sinatra, Chris’ blend of classically-trained tenor and contemporary pop vocals is a sound that’s rare in music today. Said Cee Lo, “He is by far one of the most incomparable vocalists I have ever heard.”
This classical crossover artist is set to release his Christmas EP on October 9 and his full-length major label debut album on October 30.

chris' new album is one that i will pop in whenever i need a relaxing vibe.
the album is perfect for your next dinner party background music or ladies night.

you can purchase your very own copy of chris mann's new album, roads, at itunes or amazon now.

this is a review post from one2one network. i was provided with a copy of the album and i am eligible for a prize drawing. all opinions stated are my own.
