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.
