Electric Wonderland

Biography

The success of Chris Standring’s groundbreaking 2010 CD Blue Bolero, which topped several year-end lists and produced a No. 1 single, made it a tough act for the guitarist to follow. But Standring has managed quite nicely with Electric Wonderland (March 20, 2012, Ultimate Vibe Recordings), a 10-song CD of original songs that fuses elements of Blue Bolero’s orchestral touches with a ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Original Christmas music December 7, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The front cover proclaims that the album is recorded in a cool, vintage style, but that's not quite true. Chris Strandling and Kathrin Storr between them wrote the music and lyrics. Chris produced, arranged and orchestrated the album, also playing guitars and keyboards - and programming. Unfortunately, the programming means that the end result is NOT a cool, vintage style, since there was no programming in the fifties or earlier. That programming only started in the late seventies. Kathrin did the singing, also playing sleigh bells and glockenspiel, on the final track switching to ukulele.

Chris and Kathrin were backed by musicians who played bass, drums, piano, two violins, viola, cello and the occasional other instrument as required, though not all the named instruments wer used on all tracks. The songs focus on the festive side of Christmas, with snow, frost, mistletoe and Santa among the topics.

All of which is great and appeals to me, but it is sometimes claimed that while the public generally prefer original material during the rest of the year, they prefer mostly the old familiar songs at Christmas. New songs sometimes grab the public imagination and become standards, but this is rare.

I love the songs on this album; my disappointment is that it is described as being recorded in a cool, vintage style - bit isn't. For that deception, I knock off a star.

ABSOLUTELY the best Christmas CD I've bought in 5-10 years - I wish they would make another one. I LOVE it. My husband loves it. All of my daughters all love it - and that's saying something, given their varied tastes - this is OUR Christmas CD - we put it in the CD player and we're all happy and Christmas spirity!

The great thing about this collection, aside from the beautiful voice, the great instrumentals and the awesome arrangements is that it is ORIGINAL - these are all NEW and really, really, really good Christmas songs. I wish I had the power to flash aware the public about this CD because it is that good and because, I really want them to do another one.

Chris and Kathrin - do it again! I have a 100+ CD collection of Christmas music - Classical, Jazz, Pop, you name it - this is my FAVORITE. Every time I listen to yours, I have that wistful 'more' feeling - and I literally have to pace myself on your music - I make sure that it doesn't get overplayed in our house so I don't get burnt out on it! Though, I have to tell you that once, in July, when I was feeling blue, my daughter put this CD on because she was sure it would cheer me up! Of course, it did:)

5.0 out of 5 stars WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE? December 8, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Kathrin Shorr's voice is heavenly - I happened to hear her on the radio and I had to find more from her. And, of course, Chris Standring's musical accompaniment is flawless. What a combination!!
