As covered in a recent LA Times feature, Chris Mann is an impressively multifaceted talent. You might remember him from his stint on “The Voice”, or perhaps his starring role in Phantom Of The Opera, or most recently from his viral parody videos which entertained millions worldwide. But none of that holds a candle to Chris’s amazing new Pop/R&B record “Noise”.
“I was inspired to create a new sound for “Noise” that really encompasses what I love most about pop music— classic, hooky melodies, urban beats, vintage horns, and honest lyrics that speak to where I am right now in life, love, and the times.”
Working with a cadre of incredible talent including Ca$h Clay Beats, India.Arie, Ian Barter, Willy Beaman and Thomas Daniel, this album blends a healthy dose of 90’s throwback R&B a la Justin Timberlake with a ton of other influences pulled from Mann’s diverse musical experiences.
The entire record is super fun and accessible, but standout tracks for sync include his gorgeous duet with India.Arie “Honestly”, the title track “Noise!”, and “Stop Loving You”.
