Some weeks don't start with a bang, but a whisper.
Listen for His whisper this afternoon.

Chris Rice

Chris Rice was born and raised in Clinton, MD - just outside of Washington DC. His parents were bookstore owners.  The woods and creeks of Maryland, the political and historical scene of Washington D.C., and a house of four brothers was the setting that made Chris Rice into the introspective, humorist and songwriter that he is. After several years of college-hopping Chris finally landed in Tennessee in his mid-twenties, with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Communication, and a curiosity about the music business.

It turns out that Chris was tailor made for songwriting. He's been nominated and won multiple Dove Awards, but always paced himself with a laid-back optimism that never quite fit in with the music scene. As an oddity Chris Rice stands out as sincere and patient.

Chris Rice has slipped from public life after releasing What A Heart Is Beating For back in 2007.

Album: What A Heart is Beating For & Peace Like A River: The Hymns Project


Video: Deep Enough to Dream (live)
