Chris Mann ~ EP Release TODAY ~ Autographed Copy Giveaway!

Ok, so Chris Mann is hot. Chris Mann has an amazing voice. Chris Mann's EP comes out TODAY, August 11th, and I think you should all go to Itunes, AmazonMP3, Rhapsody, and all those hip tune slogging sites and download this baby. I actually have an autographed pre-release copy of this EP and I can tell you it is fantastic. The music speaks for itself so I'll skip the traditional review and tell you a little bit about why I champion Chris Mann.

He's hot, he's cute, he makes women melt when he sings... all of this is true and yes, he is kinda yummy. He even smells pretty good.

What you may not know is that Chris is actually a classically trained musician. Picture him in tights singing opera in Italy ... hmmm, tights... Anyway... I actually graduated from the same music school as Chris (although, I graduated a million years prior to him) and we shared many of the same teachers. What I hear in his music is real, solid, and smart writing - he is a songwriter for sure. Having been a professional musician I know that it is a tough road, one I myself jumped off of after several years. It wasn't for me. I admire Chris for his ambition and his "whatever it takes" attitude. As a fellow musician I'll always support his efforts and as a true fan of his music I'll tell you this .... you want to download this music!

I've met Chris in person several times and he is a genuinely kind hearted and thoughtful person. I also think he is smart about the way he markets himself with social media. I use him as an example and have begged several clients that I work with to stalk him and learn from him. He is "the real deal".

So guess what? Chris gave me an autographed copy of his EP and an autographed Mann Crush t-shirt to give away to YOU, my fabulous and fantastically beautiful readers!!! One lucky winner will receive the EP and the t-shirt. The winner will be announced on August 19th.

    "It only takes 64 steps to heaven" from 8 Story Walk Up is my favorite Chris Mann lyric. Why, you ask? Because it took me three months to figure out why it was 64 steps. And then I didn't know whether to feel smart or stupid.

    Okay, I've been listening to his music on his site and I freaking love this song: N.Y Time: "I'm on the other side, of the world tonight, but in this heart of mine, I'm on N.Y time." That is such a cool lyric.

    Thanks for such a cool contest! I'm now a fan of Chris Mann!

    I was wondering how you would know how he smelled but then you said you met him. :) Good smelling men are the best!

    It's always nice to find musicians that really are trained!

    I can confirm he smells good... That's me in the picture with Fiona and Chris. We got to hang out with him several times during our trip to Chicago... Including a little bar where Chris played! How fun is that!?

    I'm not entering to win... just to say that his music is amazing and that I sleep in my Mann Crush Tee now and then...

    I just bought the new EP on ITunes this morning! yay!

    Until today, I've never heard of him. Sounds like a great guy though and he's definitely HOT! :-) The only celeb I've ever met was Tom Clancy--he visited the Navy command I worked for back in the early 90s. He was friend with our Commanding Officer and was there for researching one of his books.

    I absolutely love Chris and his music. My favorite lyric comes from the song, SLOW.

    "Let the palm of my hand be the place to rest your head. And caress you like a bow on a cello...I don't ever want to rush what matters most. So, let me love you slow."

    I love his music.. and you're right, he's CUTE! :) One of my BlogHer highlights, that's for sure. LOL

    I really like his song 'When the Lights Fade', the lyrics are so sweet and his voice just makes me melt..

    "Take me higher than I've ever been
    Where you are is where I'm home
    I'll be your shelter
    I'll watch over you..."
