It Has Been A Long Time
September 21, 2012
Hello to my fans, friends, and family! Thank YOU for joining the mailing list, giving me "Likes" on Facebook, for spreading the word about my songs, and your kind messages. 2012 has been quite a year thus far. I am currently finishing the recording sessions for my upcoming new CD entitled Insular, while helping my five siblings care for our dear father Gerald, who is nearing the end of his life. It seems like only yesterday that all of us were caring for our dear mother Caroline who left us four-plus years ago. Also, thanks for your prayers and support. They mean a lot to all of us. I am hoping to have the first single from the new record out before the end of the year, with the Insular CD release to follow in early 2013. Until next time...

Goodbye Houston/Hello Baltimore...once again!
January 6, 2009
I wish to thank all of my extended family and friends in Houston for their love and support over these past couple years. My mother Caroline passed away peacefully in March 2008, surrounded by her husband of 52 years and her seven children. Needless to say, my new CD project took a major back seat to this life-altering event.
It feels great to be back in Baltimore--Charm City--and to see so many friends from yesteryear!

Read On college radio campaign a success!
August 24, 2007
Hi everyone...Christopher here. First of all, I want to send out a big THANK YOU to all the college and community radio music directors and deejays who supported Read On during the recent radio campaign. I am overwhelmed by how well the record was received, considering the competition from both major and indie labels out there! I wish to send out a very special THANK YOU to the following stations for placing Read On into medium-to-heavy rotation throughout the entire radio campaign: KSUA, WFCS, WIIT, KLCR, KMSU, WCRD, WGLS, WLJS, WQRI, WOUB, BearCast Radio, WGBK, WRGW, WVUD, WWPV, WRSE, WLTL and WGCC.
Read On was sent to 400 stations throughout the U.S.A. and Canada. Of the 275 stations responding thus far, the following stats were tallied:
Read On received light rotation on 180 stations, light-to-medium rotation on 29 stations, and medium-to-heavy rotation on 18 stations. More recently, Read On was added to the playlist of an additional 31 stations although no spins thus far. Furthermore, Read On charted in the CMJ Top 30 on six stations and was rejected by only 17 stations, mostly due to formatting conflicts. As an added bonus, 55 of the stations have added Read On to their permanent music library.
Thanks again to everyone for supporting independent artists!
