​Music

for the good of it

     All Chris Ahlman wants to do is create good music and share it with everybody to enjoy.

     The San Francisco Bay Area resident and Nashville Recording Artist 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.

     His new album, "The SunCrashers," debuted on the Americana Country Album Chart at #10, and #11 on the Country Album Chart, as well as #21 on the California Album Chart as reported by Roots Music Report.  Three individual songs from the album also charted in the Top 25 in a couple of categories as well.

     Chris has had the wonderful experience of working with some of the finest artists in the world on his music, including some Grammy winning musicians like Producer/Songwriter/Teacher Cliff Goldmacher (Keb Mo, Ke$ha, Lisa Loeb, Mickey Hart), George Marinelli (Bonnie Raitt, Bruce Hornsby) and Kerry Marx (Johnny Cash, Taylor Swift, John Legend...and many more).  Kerry played electric guitars on Chris'  album "Once Upon A Rhyme," released in 2021 and currently serves as Music Director at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.  The first single off the album, the title track, has amassed over 180,000 streams on Spotify since its release.  Kerry also recently joined the group of amazing musicians with his lead guitar for a spectacular week of production in Nashville to record Chris' brand new album, "The SunCrashers," which is mentioned above and was released on February 26th 2023.  Included in this new project, among others, are Kerry's wife Catherine Marx, on the piano and Hammond B3 organ.  Catherine played recently with Willie Nelson and tours with Reba McEntire.  Also included on the new record is Andrea Zonn on the fiddle, who plays in James Taylor's band.

     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.”
