Album Notes
Singer/Songwriter, Chris Van Cott (CVC) picked up his first guitar at the age of 6 and has been hooked ever since. He won middle school Composer of the Year for completing a full-length album entitled, "Premier Collection." He played in various projects throughout high school and went on to graduate from Five Towns College of Music and Audio Engineering in Long Island, NY in 1997.

In 1998, he formed Other Natural Flavors, also known by their fans as, ONF. As the lead singer and guitarist, he explored the world of alternative pop music by blending sweet vocal harmonies with an edgy rock sound. CVC's zeal for adventure led him to the West Coast to record ONF's debut album, "Drop the World." It received extensive college radio airplay and a licensing deal with MTV networks. However, it was the band's live shows, lead by the energetic singer, which won over many critics in New York and San Diego alike.

CVC's experiences have helped him develop as a storyteller. His two solo efforts, "Gold Like the Sun" & "Little Puppy," are collections of acoustic tunes that combine styles & tales from both coasts. His influences include Steve Poltz, Jason Mraz, & Jack Johnson to name a few. In 2004, UMO Music NY selected Chris as one of "The 14 Best Singer/Songwriters of Greenwich Village". The compilation CD featuring all the artists is available at

Thought provoking, original and addictive
This is an addictive album! Very original and easy to just sit back and listen to every day, especially while driving, working or anything else.
