Chris also composed all of the music on Cascade Timber's first two albums (Earth Home  &  In The Mountains):
"Earth Home" and “In The Mountains” were recorded on analogue equipment in the 1990s and are filled with acoustic guitars, natural percussion, and sweet voices that sometimes soar like the mountains themselves - and sometimes whisper like a breeze through the pines.
 The operative musical concept for both of these albums is "acoustic".  And both albums are filled with songs of the Earth, the Sea, and the Sky...songs born of love, peace, and Joy... and songs reflecting the voice and the wonder of nature in the wild.    
Riding On A Rainbow is full of Sweet, full bodied acoustic guitar; western-style lead guitar licks; and good-old-school romantic crooning of amore' and love for your baby! It's all about love, and the music both leads and follows where that mood inspires it. Light a low fire...       click HERE to read the complete album notes and reviews.
 "Blue Waters Call"is a collection of new music articulating the bond and the timeless link between sailors and the oceans, the seas, and the rivers that call to them in their dreams... "Come Home to the Sea...Come Home to Me". These songs go far, far beyond that old "yo-ho-ho blah-blah-blah" pirate-centric stuff of amusement park fantasy...forget all that.    This is music and sung-poetry intimately describing the sailor's yearning, the Sea's calling, and the Water's Truth that draws certain of us down to the sea in our ships, or on our boards, or just to walk the beach for miles to drink it all in.

"The Wine Album" - Classic, Romantic and delicious; smooth, slow and dreamy… like a fine vintage wine in an old-school/retro/Latin/slow jazz/new-folk sort of way.    If very fine wine had a voice and could sing it would sound like this; if it could communicate in words we might understand it would doubtless sing these very lyrics; if the vintages speak to you listen to them here.  Enjoy The Wine Album and its' varietals slowly, savor the flavors paired in the music bouquet.   Enjoyed best slowly… in an easy time, with fine company and fine vintages nearby.  Light a low fire, toast the night, and set a mood.

"The Saga of Shipwreck Key" - Robust sailor music reflecting the depths and moods of the sea – sometimes gentle and lulling, sometimes violent like “The Raging Main”…always blue, always dynamic, always calling…  The Saga is a SEVENTEEN MINUTE (17 +) LONG event!  It tells the six-part tale of a sailor's voyage through "The Raging Main" (beware! this movement truely "rages") and onto the mythical Shipwreck Key - then "Rescue" and the subsequent quest to return...  If you've ever been on the high-seas in a storm, or daydreamed about some Sailor Paradise on some remote tropical isle then you need to inhale The Saga of Shipwreck a deep draw of salt air (but hold your breath & hang-on through The Raging Main!).


"In Montana" - is set in Montana – and particularly the wild lands, the hardy people, and the outdoor lifestyle found here. The music is rich with acoustic guitars, natural percussion, and vocal harmony.  All the songs on the album incorporate a high degree of ecological conservationism and promote and encourage a deep respect for our wilder-lands and our wilder-life.   All of the pieces reflect some aspect of wild nature as experienced in Montana...and anywhere the Wilder-Lands and Wilder-Life are allowed to remain "wild".  We endorse Wilder Wildlands, and we sing with gratitude to those dedicated souls who devote themselves to protecting it..we owe you.  Read the Lively Times Review.

"Natural Causes" - is  dedicated to heightening our appreciation of the natural environment and of Mother Earth herself.  The entire album sings about the ideal place where we humans are truly at home and at peace with our planet and with all the life upon her.   Perfect for anyone who enjoys finely crafted, tasty, acoustic "natural folk" music; and who also happens to maintain an interest in fostering a productive, wholesome, and peaceful relationship with our fellow humans, our fellow animals, and with our mother planet.  Have a listen, enjoy!

"Sails" - Upbeat, robust, nautical music born of the Sailor's lifestyle and love for the sea and the sailing experience; these songs are all afloat on memorable melodies and meaningful lyrics. You will find no pirate fantasies here babe, no "Yo-ho-ho, blah-blah-blah". Sails contains only music reflecting the genuine modern sailor's passion and articulating his/her lifestyle choice. Strongly acoustic in drive, but with moments of serious grit - something like how every so often the sea Herself rips the idyllic atmosphere open to reveal and flaunt her raging mane.  (Sailorsong Records)

"Beaches" - Upbeat sunny beach music made by and for Long Beach Walkers, Surf Riders, Sunset Gazers, Shell Collectors, Seagull Dreamers, Flip-Flop Wearers, Sunbeam Collectors, Sandy-feet People, Pelican Lovers, Horizon Reachers, and Sea-spray inhalers... like YOU and ME! Some new "Beach-Jazz" for grooving to while walking along the shoreline; some new beach acoustics for hanging out with in your beach chair daydreaming about the seabirds; some new California coastline-lifestyle music to Watch The Sun Kiss The Sea too. Music to transport you to this Golden Place on the Beaches from wherever else you may happen to be. (Sailorsong Records)

"Solo Sailor" -   Acoustic renditions of select Nautical & Coastal pieces from previous releases.  Just Chris & his six-string and the waves lapping at the bow.  Refreshingly pure & simple!

(Sailorsong Records).


"Triple Creek" -   Guitar as deep as the Big Montana Sky, and deliciously sweet poetry for all the Wilderness, the Earth, and the nature-lover's deep-green heart to hear.  Triple Creek is an echo of the song of the mountains and the rustle of a gentle breeze through the forest; it is the soulful call of the deep wild; and it harmonizes human voice with animal skins, bones, and guitar strings reflecting back the living song of the Earth’s wilder places and inhabitants.

"Reflections" -   Upbeat pop/rock, 

Raucous and Rowdy, with deeply meaningful

and thought-provoking poetry transformed into

song lyrics.  Volumes of  non-conformist and unconventional  social commentary imbedded throughout  the musical depths.    Music that rocks

& rivets but also sometimes slides & glides;  lyrics reflecting the art of thinking freely without limitations about near everything that really matters;  powerful concepts espousing renewed perspectives and ways of influencing the world.
