Birthday Hugs and Greetings to Christopher Dallman!


It's Christopher's Dallman's Birthday Today!!!

Go send him special warm wishes and lots of digital hugs on his Facebook page or Twitter!

And do not forget about Christopher's new EP "Light The Love", which will be released very soon. In fact there will be a release party next Monday, September 26th at Show at Barre! The details are in a previous blog post here!

The cover was design by CJD's friend and webmeister - Sean Akers. Doesn't it look light and inspiring? Almost... refulgent. And I'm sure the new songs will be equally soul-stirring and meaningful.

The best birthday present you could get for Christopher, is to buy the new CD or download the EP which will be available next Tuesday, September 27th at Bandcamp.

Remember to click this link next Tuesday to get your copy! 

And if you haven't got Christopher's previous releases - "Light the Love", "Never Was", and "Race the Light" - these will also be available at Bandcamp!

PS: I'm looking for someone who will be attending the release party and wants to write a fan report for this site! More news and more hype just helps to boost Christopher's profile in the way he deserves. So, if you want to contribute, please drop me a note on Twitter to @syzzlyn!

Enjoy A CJD Live Performance... Digitally!



Recently, Christopher Dallman has been indulging his fans by doing uStream performances from time to time. And at different times to cater to his growing international fanbase in various time zones.

His last uStream "living room" performance was on Friday, July 29th at 11am PST.

There were the regular suspects in CJD's "living room" that day. And as we greeted each other, we got cozily settled for what we knew would be another fantastic acoustic session by Christopher. At one point, there were about 52 people in the "living room"!! Quite a sizeable crowd.

Video - Has Been (Live)

Not long after the video preview of a new song was released on Facebook, Christopher Dallman couldn't help spoiling his fans one more time.

A live version of the soulful song "Has Been" was uploaded on his YouTube channel! Personally, I think Christopher's performance, from the same show at Room 5, is near perfect.

Check it out!


This is one of my favouritest songs, after "Ghosts" ... And I am so in love with the wistful yet honest lyrics.

I've listened to this song so many times and haven't got tired of it yet.

What about you?

Christopher Dallman Interview - "Gimme More" Video Shoot

Not only did CDC manage to get hold of Derek Woods - the director of the new "Gimme More" video - we also managed to steal some time from Christopher Dallman himself!

Christopher shares about how he met director Derek Woods and tells us some tidbits about the "Gimme More" video shoot.



CDC: What made you decide on working with Derek Woods for the the "Gimme More" video ?
Christopher: My good friend Elizabeth Uhl used to work with Derek's manager. When I released "Sad Britney" over a year ago, she sent him the record and he told her he had a client who might be a good fit to direct a video for one of the songs. So, she sent me to Derek's website and I watched his directors reel. I dug his visual style right away.

Liz set up a meeting and we had coffee one afternoon. We got along really well right off the bat. He explained his vision for the video and it sounded really good to me. He didn't sell me on a story so much as a visual scheme, and it felt like a really good 'next thing' for me.

CJD At Hotel Utah

Cheryl Lowder (@calowder) and her hubby Doug, celebrated their wedding anniversary with Christopher last December!!

Now.. Cheryl has admitted being really late with this blog contribution. Because she still has her fangirl-perv/squee training wheels on, do feel free to tweet her a spank. Or throw her tons of sticky glitter. ;)

Here's her write-up of that night's events!

------------------

Just before Christmas, on December 19, 2010, Christopher Dallman came back to San Francisco to give a wonderful performance at the the Hotel Utah. The weather had been very wet but it stopped raining just in time for us to drive over the bridge for the chance to enjoy Christopher and his music live once again.
