From Smooth & Soul (website)

From Jazz Moods (online radio station)

Chris takes listeners on a journey with his keyboard to a smooth jazz place that is exciting and melodically controlled. Definitely the kind of groove you would want in your car as you hit the roads for work or play.

From Sundial Media Group (music marketing company)
