Keyboardist Chris Geith is known for his sales
success on the internet platform Mp3.com. His recent albums
Timeless World (2007) and Island Of A Thousand Dreams
(2010) were also chart toppers. His collaboration with David Wells
No Side Effects (2013) was often played on radio stations
around the USA.
His newest album Chasing Rainbows (2014)
is currently available as download only, but Chris has promised to
manufacture some CDs for his next show. The first track
Andromeda shines with elegant piano performance. Atmospheric
force receives the piece through sustainable reverb effects.
Comparable is this with Brian Culbertson's newest effort Another
Long Night Out.
However, Chris' music tends more to the New Age
field. Green Shadow wide spreads romantic advances.
Absolute Magnitude takes the style sheet of the first piece
again. Chasing Rainbows has nothing to do with Ray Wilson's
album. It is knit more for the Weather Channel, where Chris found
already considerable appeal.
Celestial Equator reminds me of the
music of Jean Michel Jarre, while Chris is based more on the
strength of the piano in opposite to the synthesizer. On YouTube there are numerous videos of
his new songs like for example Freedom At Sunrise. The
reaction is throughout positive.
The journey continues with Roundtrip To
The Stars. Chris puts great emphasis on harmonies. As well
as the development of the melody and the arrangement is not
Evening Starlight. Can we
expect surprises? Heat Index simmers with elements of rock.
Otherwise, Chris remains true to himself. Early On Cruise
includes a delightful guitar component.
His fans come with Chasing Rainbows to
their usual feelings of happiness. More perhaps next time.
