Chris Ahlman is a professional singer/songwriter currently living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. He keeps busy averaging over one-hundred shows per year while also spending time making music in the studio.
A new track ‘Once Upon A Rhyme’ was released today. It’s the first single and the title track for his brand new album, set to be released mid-late July of this year.
“I was spending some time in Santa Barbara about two years ago, and one afternoon I suddenly felt this strong inspiration to write this song. It’s kind of a love song about writing love songs and adventure. It just came to me and I started really feeling the vibe and rhythm of what later would become this first single off my new album.”
“Once we got into the studio with some of Nashville’s finest musicians, it started to really fill out and develop this catchy really cool feel. After finishing the entire twelve song album, which is set to be released later this summer, I decided this song would be a good strong choice for the first single.”
“I am hoping to get as many people to be able to hear it as possible. I think it’s a really special song that can inspire people. In my opinion, good music like this can make you feel good and shine a little light into somebody’s life. It also would be great to get it into a movie or a tv show and get more exposure that way as well.”
“This song was recorded and mixed half in Sonoma, California, and half in Nashville, Tennessee. It features some Grammy winning musicians including Cliff Goldmacher (Lisa Loeb, Kesha, Keb Mo) and Kerry Marx (Johnny Cash, Taylor Swift, John Legend), as well as a number of other amazingly talented artists.”
