Review: Chris Mann's Roads

I haven't gotten into the television show, "The Voice", but I do understand the premise.  Chris Mann won last year, and his debut album came out this week.

He is considered a "classical crossover" artist, and after listening to his album a few times, I think that's a great description of his style.  He has a fantastic voice!  I enjoyed listening to the songs on this album.  More than half are covers, but he added a twist to each one.  I wasn't thrilled with his version of Willie Nelson's "Always on my mind", but thought he did a great job with Frank Sinatra's "My Way."  I really liked his rendition of "Ave Maria."  It's one of my favorite songs, and was even sung at my wedding.

I can see myself listening to this album in quiet moments, or the background music for a get together of friends.  It's probably a good end-of-day, driving home album as well.

You can preview 3 of his songs at SoundCloud at this link:

You can buy his album either physical copy or MP3 at Amazon, or it's  available via iTunes.

*Disclosure: I received an advanced copy of this album, and by posting I am entered into a drawing for a prize. No additional compensation was provided.  All opinions are my own.*
