ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Chuck Whiting describes his first album, "Dreamer On The Prowl," as a reflection of his life's work. For many years, he wrote songs with the goal of landing cuts with other artists. Now his passion is aimed more towards the arts and originality.

"I have a love for all kinds of music," Chuck says. "For me, recording this album wasn't about trying to fit into a particular genre. It was more about being true to who I am. I hope listeners will appreciate the authenticity. At this stage of my life and career, my work is more about expressing myself and being real."

"Dreamer On The Prowl" features eight instrumentals and four vocal tunes, with guest appearances by acclaimed musicians such as clarinetist/saxophonist Max Niederle, harmonica player Chris "Freight Train" Floyd, violinist Myles Thompson, guitarist Tim Thompson, cornetist/guitarist Bryan Cumming, and the Grammy-nominated The WannaBeatles.

"These incredible artists helped lift my work to a higher level than I could have done myself," Chuck adds. "They totally understood what I was reaching for."

Highlights on the album include the Broadway-esque instrumental and vocal tune "Baby You're Good" (written with Candy Paull), the inspirational pop ballad "When You Have Love" (written with Lisa Aschmann), the classical instrumental "Water" (a duet with violinist Myles Thompson), a New Orleans-inspired instrumental called "Ragtimer Blues," and an "outside-the-box" jazz instrumental arrangement of "You Never Give Me Your Money" (a classic cover written by Lennon/McCartney). Max Niederle duets with Chuck on several instrumentals, including the title track.

"I couldn't record my first album without including an instrumental cover of a Beatles song," Chuck continues. "They've been with me since the very beginning."

Chuck Whiting is a songwriter, composer, pianist, singer, author, publicist and educator. He began his career as a reporter for The Mobile (Ala.) Press Register and The Birmingham (Ala.) News. He worked in the PR field after that, including a seven-year stint as the PR representative for the Opryland Hotel. He launched his own Nashville company, Music City Arts Network, in 1993. He currently serves as an instructor of Mass Communications for Motlow State Community College.

Music-wise, Chuck has previously released the Christmas book and CD, "The Littlest Star: a musical story." The song hit the Top 100 on various charts, landing radio airplay around the world. Performers on the project include Nashville Chamber violinist Conni Ellisor, country star Margo Smith, and Grammy-nominated jazz guitarist Denny Jiosa.

Chuck also runs a monthly songwriters night in Nashville called "Tunesmithing." His arts blog, Music City Arts Update, provides insights on arts happenings in Middle Tennessee.
