I posted earlier this week about Chris Mann's new album getting ready to come out, well today is the today. One year after Chris Mann appeared on #TheVoice, his debut album, #Roads, is out! I was pleased to be able to listen to the entire album before it was released and I already have some favorite songs. I really liked the title track, Roads, the best. I also thought Blower's Daughter, On a Night Like This, and Viva La Vida were great songs.
If I had to compare him to any artist that I'm familiar with, I'd say it'd have to be Josh Groban. Chris has a melodic and clear tone that is best suited to beautiful songs and not pop music. His singing is beautiful and most of the songs on this album are slow, so you don't have to worry about disturbing others if you're listening to it at work. I would categorize his music as easy listening, although I don't know what the official tag is that Universal Music has put on him.
You can purchase the album on iTunes or Amazon now.
