All Chris Ahlman wants to do is spread some positivity with his music.

     The San Francisco Bay Area resident grew up with music and spent much of his childhood behind a piano and, later, a saxophone. At fifteen, he switched over to guitar and vocal work, and since 2007, has been entertaining audiences with his original music.

     In recent years Chris has had the opportunity to play/record with a number of Grammy winning musicians including Cliff Goldmacher (Keb Mo, Ke$ha, Lisa Loeb), George Marinelli (Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Hornsby) and Kerry Marx (Johnny Cash, Taylor Swift, John Legend...and many more).  Kerry played electric guitars on Chris' newest album "Once Upon A Rhyme," and currently serves as Music Director at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.  The album has amassed over 500,000 streams on Spotify since its release in mid-2021.

     Chris' prominent influences include Dave Matthews, Counting Crows, Pearl Jam, John Mayer, Train, Bob Dylan, The Fray, Augustana, David Gray, and Hootie and the Blowfish to name a few.  His lyrics are positive and uplifting, his guitar work is mellow, and his vocals are strong and soothing.

     “My music is focused towards inspiring people to think about life,” he explains, “and the world that we live in from a positive and good perspective. I believe that music is a wonderful and good part of this world that brings people together.”
