I was so excited to hear that i was chosen to by One2OneNetwork to Preview Chris Mann’s Roads Album. I have been a huge fan of him since the Voice he has an amazing voice which is not a voice we hear all the time. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Chris Mann, about a year ago Chris was competing on The Voice and now he is releasing his major label debut. Mann is classically trained but his voice is so soulful and modern which you can tell in his album Roads. My favorite songs off the album is -Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” to and Damien Rice’s “The Blowers’ Daughter,” featuring a special guest appearance from one of ‘The Voice’ judges – Christina Aguilera.
As a finalist on the hit NBC television series “The Voice,” Chris Mann captured the hearts of millions while drawing the respect of multi-platinum talents such as Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo. Following one of his many dynamic live performances on the show, Aguilera told him, “I feel the heavens open up when you sing.” America agreed, and when the series ended, Chris had not one, but two songs on the iTunes Top 10 Pop Singles Chart.Influenced by Pavarotti, Robbie Williams and vintage Sinatra, Chris’ blend of classically-trained tenor and contemporary pop vocals is a sound that’s rare in music today. Said Cee Lo, “He is by far one of the most incomparable vocalists I have ever heard.”This classical crossover artist released his Christmas EP on October 9 and his full-length major label debuted on October 30. After listening to his album i can’t help to compare him to such a talented singer like Micheal Buble or Josh Groban.
Roads consists of eleven tracks:
2. Need You Now
4. The Blower’s Daughter ( i just love this one so much!)
5. My Way
6. Unless You Mean It
7. Always On My Mind
8. On A Night Like This
9. Ave Maria
11. Viva La Vida
