Now the singer-songwriter-guitarist is unveiling a new collection of songs; the Lost and Found EP is out today, September 24. Stream, buy and share Lost and Found on all digital platforms. “I’m happy to be able to share more songs with the world,” CHRIS says. “These are from the same Joshua Tree sessions that the Red Feather EP came from, and they’ve been a long time coming. In fact, we’ve been in the studio again since then and have an entire full record in the bag already to go.” “Chevy Van,” the first single off the new release, is a take on the Sammy Johns classic. As Steve Horowitz of PopMatters sees it, “It’s shaggier than the original, but this makes the track more agreeable…Roberts manages to capture the 1970s vibe and make old attitudes more acceptable in the present.” Following an exclusive debut with Cowboys & Indians magazine, the official music video is out now on YouTube. It was shot in Joshua Tree, the same California desert where the music was recorded. The band also recently stopped by Jam In The Van in Los Angeles to perform “Chevy Van,” as well as the title track “Lost and Found” and “On My Own” from Red Feather; take it in now on YouTube. “I always thought it was a cool song and had a country twang when Sammy Kershaw covered it,” CHRIS explains. “I always dug the hippie vibe and the story. I thought it fit perfectly for my style of hippie country and ‘that’s all right with me.’” It wasn’t always clear that music was in the cards for the Austin native now based in Aspen, CO. “I never tried to become a musician,” he explains. “I never thought I would play music. I never desired to play music. It’s just that music kept falling into me and out of me until I had no choice.” From working on ranches and construction sites in Texas, laying carpet, and even washing cars, to eventually launching Aspen Hatter, a highly successful hatmaking business with celebrity fans, CHRIS has always been an independent and impulsive self-starter. Every bit of music he’s heard, every moment of sadness and joy he’s experience, informs who he is and what he does.
