Chris Chickering is a singer-songwriter whose deepest wish is for you to truly embrace and live in your greatness.
In 2013, Chris founded Music for Positive Change, a music venture whose mission is to "connect and empower people through music."
He writes and performs songs with uplifting lyrics that speak to timeless, universal truths about the human condition. He addresses themes like connection, love, acceptance and peace.
Chris is fueled by a love of music and a desire to make the world a better place to be. Chris believes that music is a powerful agent to bring people together, lift their spirits and create a brighter, more unified world.

Inspiration Behind the Music:
Chris's songwriting process is inspired by a life-long fascination with consciousness. He seeks to find that which uni fies us; he searches for the deeper universal truths that lie at the root of the human condition.
Truths are often masked or disguised, because we don't know how to recognize them in the white noise of today's modern world. Chris has learned that discovery of these truths is a choice; we have to dig in and uncover them - an archaeology of the unconscious.
In the pursuit of this vision, Chris has spent many years studying psychology, hypnosis, peak performance, religious texts, and ancient myths from every corner of the world. He actively seeks out and listens to those who have wisdom to share.
Chris's music speaks to the deeper relationships we can have both with ourselves and with others, with a focus on making listeners feel good. The music asks us to believe in ourselves and in others, and reminds us that it is never too late to follow the path of our highest self.
