Those who read Cross Rhythms' recent article will know Chris was recently voted Best New Artist in the 2011 Dove Awards. This, his first release for Word, utilises the rock solid production (and some songwriting and musicianship as well) of Ed Cash (Bebo Norman, Amy Grant) and it showcases why there is so much attention coming his way. In style terms think The Script mixed with Jeremy Camp with a little sprinkling of Coldplay and you get close. The opener "You And I" sets the pace with a solid drum base and feel good lyrics. The latter are what gives Chris the edge; his lyrics give the listener an insight into a world which we can all relate to. In "Battle", the fight between good and evil is explored, in "7x70" he explores what his house has heard during his life there, happiness, screaming matches, pain and loneliness, and God's help through it all, "I thought the pain was here to stay/But forgiveness made a way". It's hard to find favourites as this album is simply outstanding. It is a bit of a slow burner, but once it gets under your skin, it does not let go.

The breakthrough album from a 2011 Dove Award winner.

While he may be considered a “new” artist, singer-songwriter Chris August is anything but a rookie in the music industry. The self-taught pianist, guitarist, and producer previously toured as the keyboard player and opening act for pop sensation Ashlee Simpson before shifting his focus to his solo career. While he is not one to shy away from writing about his faith, Chris isn’t afraid to embrace relationships and heartache in his songwriting. Chris cites influences such as Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, and Gavin DeGraw.
