Chris Spheeris - One Man Concert
two evenings of inspired music
 

For the first time in almost 2 years, Emmy Award winning, internationally-acclaimed recording artist, Chris Spheeris, will present his one-man (oops!) one “person” show!  Combining music, songs, spoken word and his original unique perspective, Spheeris reveals his insightful vulnerability.  Chris’ warm soft voice delivers wit and humor, promising two entertaining evenings of connection, delight and surprise.  Performances take place on Friday, August 3rd, 2007 & Saturday, August 4th at 8pm.  Tickets $20, available at Crystal Magic, Golden Word Book Centre & Sedona Creative Life Center.  Selling records in the millions, his international acclaim encompasses over 12 original CD’s and more than 60 documentary soundtracks.  For more info visit www.chrisspheeris.com

A 20 year resident of Sedona, Chris Spheeris helped pioneer the new age movement by being one of the first such artists to be signed to a major record label in the late 80’s.  Highlighting his singer/songwriter abilities, his music is reminiscent of the era of great songwriters such as Paul Simon, Cat Stevens & Joni Mitchell.  Disarmingly candid and lighthearted, Spheeris’ deep philosophical nature accentuates his unusual gift for creating a warm connected atmosphere during his performances.  In addition to his musical works, Spheeris also finds inspiration in authoring what he refers to as “transformational poetry”, and in capturing the moment with his colorful photography.  For examples and more information please visit www.chrisspheeris.com.


 

"After a year and a half hiatus from performing, I've been called back to the stage again and I'm very excited to be doing so with these musicians.  Not only are they three of the most talented and knowledgeable musicians I know, but they are all three beautiful people.  I'm curious to see and feel what this vortex of warmth will impart on an audience and how we will be graced in return. in terms of the arrangements.  I'm going for a smaller, more exposed sound.  No bombast, more detail.  I will be opening up for myself with a solo set of mostly vocal works, a few instrumental themes and I will share several embarrassing details about my personal life.  Then, I'll bring the boys on to save me from myself and expand all of our ego boundaries into infinity.  Together, we will be performing mostly instrumentals from several of my recordings.  This should be one of those rare opportunities for us all to fall in love with ourselves and each other."
