Album Notes
Chris arranged and recorded most of this album at her studio in Washington state, bringing in a core of familiar faces...

Chad Quist rocks the electric guitar on six of the eight songs, alongside Michael Manring and his fine signature style of bass. English horn and oboe features Karen Gheorghiu while Jami Sieber bows acoustic cello this time around.

Carl Dexter adds contrabass and his daughter, Fuchsia Dexter, plays a spirited viola and violin on two cuts. Tom TeRonde, Valerie Cochran and Jennifer Witherspoon form the "Love Train Choir" and Jack Burr muses with the Hummingbird...

Mariana Sadovska and Kitka generously approved the use and adaptation of their vocal arrangement on Oj u Horodi ~ a traditional Ukrainian folk song. A big gratuitous thank you to these talented women!

James Kennedy, also gave his blessings on Chris' further morphing of a song he fleshed out many moons ago: In My Heart.

Sohre composed, arranged and produced Light Years Away for her indie label, Fleeting Echoes Ltd.

John Herchenrider was principal mix engineer and co-producer. Being a huge force in development of this project, he dialed in from Alaska (a studio in Sitka, on his boat and in Warm Springs Bay).

Marty Eigenberger, another long-time collaborator and advisor in Sohre's projects, added lyrics to three of the pieces, besides lending his photography and graphics skills.

Mastering was done by Steve Corrao at Sage Audio in Nashville, Tennessee.

Light Years Away by Chris Sohre
Light Years Away by Chris Sohre is like finding a lost hue of Royal Blue
She puts together a wide selection of instrumentation and musical syncopations in each track.
Her lyrics put to light cosmic, classical, and cultural moods and visual portrayals.
Arranged, recorded and produced like polished woodwork her slow rock melodies are pleated with jazzy sequences. I’d even say that I think there’s one high stepping Love song in this collection. I like the CD and I hope she will continues her skillful crafts~
