My first new album in 5 years. Wow. I used to put out new records every couple weeks, didn't I?
This record was created in a totally different way from how I worked in the past, though, and I'm very proud of these songs; they're raw, spacious, and full of collaborative energy (thanks to the amazing talents of Arthur Parker, Rob Stroup, Naomi Hooley, Anders Bergstrom, Bob Dunham, and Paul Brainard).
Pledge to pre-order the album and hear it before anyone else; snag some rad limited-edition posters, t-shirts, poetry chapbooks, poetry broadsides, and more; and play a part in helping me make this album a reality.

Thanks for your support.
If you want to get a first glimpse at their work while it takes shape, pledge to pre-order THE GREAT MAKE BELIEVER at http://www.pledgemusic.com/chrisrobley today.

Here's me pretending not to be scared shitless as I pressed the big red LAUNCH button for my PledgeMusic campaign yesterday. (http://www.pledgemusic.com/chrisrobley).
One day later and I'm 21% funded. Thanks so much to those who've already climbed aboard the good ship #GreatMakeBeliever (kinda sounds like a cult, huh?)

- CD BabyMarketing Coordinator, 2005 - present
The LA Times, Boston Globe, San Francisco Examiner, and other fine publications have used nice words to describe my music.
NPR says: “Dark, romantic strains take flight. This gothic, orchestral indie-pop is sure to leave heads spinning with its unique and haunting sound.”
As a songwriter/band-leader, I’ve released 6 albums of original material. As a producer and/or session-player, I’ve appeared on over 50 records, mostly by pop, rock, folk, and jazz artists from the Pacific Northwest.
I’m also a contemporary American poetry fanatic. I’ve recently begun dipping my toe into the frightening world of submitting poems for publication and editing YRTEOP.COM (“POETRY” spelled backwards)– home to poet interviews, poetry news, and 1-Minute Poem Reports.
As marketing coordinator for CD Baby and BookBaby (distributors of independent music and books) I also manage/edit the DIY Musician Blog which sees over 100k unique visits per month, as well as the new BookBaby Blog.
Content never sleeps. Also, “content” is a terrible word.
