Chris Mann recently mastered his new album "Roads" at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood. Mann was a leading contender in the second season of "The Voice" and won an exclusive worldwide contract with Faircraft/Universal Republic, a new imprint headed up by A&R executive Ron Fair, who produced the debut. Album mixing was by Peter Mokran, whose credits include Christina Aguilera, Snoop Dogg, and Michael Jackson.
By the end of "The Voice" season, Mann had two songs on the iTunes Top 10 Pop Singles Chart. The program's coach Cee Lo Green said of Mann, "He is by far one of the most incomparable vocalists I have ever heard."
Hailing from Wichita, Kansas, 30-year-old Mann received a degree in opera from Vanderbilt University and left for Europe when cast in an Italian opera. His engagements includes touring with Grammy Award-winner India.Arie and Tony Award-winner Idina Menzel. He's also performed at events including the Sundance Film Festival, the Academy Awards Young Hollywood Party and the American Film Institute Awards, among others.
"Roads" is available on Universal/Republic Records.
