Chris Standring – Blue Bolero

Chris Standring will release his forthcoming album Blue Bolero March 2nd 2010. Chris recorded this ambitious album with orchestral sounds. He wanted to take a major left turn musically on this album and as soon as he started messing around with orchestral samples, the drive to realize this project became much bigger than him.

The entire album is extremely cinematic and represents, in a somewhat vague fashion, the journey he took as a musically driven youngster to the person he is today, still musically driven but just that little bit older. From his upbringing on a farm outside Aylesbury in England, making the move to London and finally the big move to Los Angeles, California, Blue Bolero is kind of the movie of his life so far.

Chris comments:  “Not wishing to make myself sound too dark, windswept and let’s face it, infernally annoying, the concept of this somewhat autobiographical project certainly was meant to be fun, but with musical elements that reflect my musical training, influences and cultural surroundings. This is something I have certainly not entertained on previous albums. The music here is based around several themes and represents a very reflective mood throughout. I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I have.”

Chris Standring calls this album his masterpiece.  Fans of Chris Standring can subscribe to his newsletter at his website and will receive a very exclusive offer!
