Chris Babson, a friend from college, recently released his first CD, Perfectly. Chris has been singing in theater and musicals for a while, but he’s only recently started songwriting. Even so, the CD is startlingly good. Chris considers Jason Mraz, Marc Broussard, and Martin Sexton among his influences, but he’s definitely developed his own voice.
I heard Chris play live well before I heard him recorded, and he’s a blast in person. Even alone, armed with nothing more than a mic and an acoustic guitar, Chris overflows with personality. His shows are incredible, due mostly to his voice, his songwriting, and his larger-than-life stage presence.
