Chris Chandler is a maker of new things out of two things, out of three things, out of four — one of the world’s consummate collaborators, sharing tracks with luminaries, fusing the verse he inhabits with the chords and choruses of artists such as Dan Bern, Jim Infantino, Peter Yarrow, Anne Feeney and Paul Benoit. I’ve known Chris a bit over the years, and years ago shared stages with him here and there, and I’ve always been moved and awed by what he manages to do with a pair of vocal cords and the truth. But I’ve never heard his full story or gotten under the hood with the head that makes it all work. Until this episode.
