Christopher is a work in progress. With one full album and three EPs under his belt, he had toured colleges, clubs, theaters, and living rooms in the US and overseas, spreading his unique blend of passion and melancholy. He has licensed songs to TV and film and is all sorts of prepared to be your new best friend.
If I can dream it, I can be it..
Christopher Dallman has a voice 'like melted honey with a little bit of brandy.' The perfect combination of melancholy and passion.
In the spring of 2004, Christopher Dallman released his debut album RACE THE LIGHT. The eleven song arc brought listeners through the mending of a broken heart and the finding of one's identity in a city full of strangers.
Dallman spent two years tirelessly promoting the album- touring colleges, clubs, theaters, and living rooms in the US and abroad, sharing the stage with Amos Lee, Ellis Paul, Ben Lee, Luka Bloom, Syd, Gregory Douglass, Ollabelle, Jonathan Rice and Casey Stratton. RACE THE LIGHT was nominated for Best Debut Male in the 2005 Outmusic Awards and yielded the fan favorite, OVER MY HEAD, which built on Christopher's loyal following after being featured on MTV's The Real World and in the feature film 'Eating Out: All You Can Eat.'
In the five years following RACE THE LIGHT, Christopher retreated from performing and delved deeper into songwriting, exploring the intricacies of his experiences through his music. A long distance move, a death, and a new love took him far from his roots, yet somehow brought him closer to himself.
In October of 2009, Dallman released NEVER WAS, an EP of 4 original songs that chronicle his own revival, touching on transformation, discovery and loss, and the fear of letting go of your dreams in order to hold onto reality. Produced by Barrie Maguire (Amos Lee, Natalie Merchant, The Wallflowers) and Rachel Alina (Pink, Katy Perry, Mika) NEVER WAS re-established Dallman as a formidable voice in the singer/songwriter arena.
In November 2009, Dallman released SAD BRITNEY an EP of 4 classic Britney Spears songs completely re-imagined through Dallman's own emotional pallete. On the day of its release, the EP climbed to #6 on the iTunes singer/songwriter charts based on viral word of mouth and a grass roots online social networking campaign alone.
A 3rd EP produced by George Stanford is on the way in early 2010.
After a long period of gestation, Christopher Dallman is ready to bring these songs to new audiences with his candid and disarming stage presence and undeniable voice.
"Inspired showmanship... hard-driving songs..."
"Lyrics of deep introspection enveloped in a passionate acoustic melody are leading Christopher Dallman to the forefront of a new generation of songwriters."
