Album Notes
Singer-songwriter, guitarist, and Family Recording Artist, Chip Richter has been called a Contemporary Christian Folk Artist, a Balladeer, even a Christian Don McClean. With vocals that "hug your ears" and a progressive acoustic guitar style that is warm and "organic", Chip Richter brings something fun, fresh and hopeful to his listeners.

Righteous Path Music Productions announces the release of a new CD from Contemporary Christian Folk Artist, Chip Richter. "My Dad's Coat" is music written and produced for Kids and their Parents.
The title track of "My Dad's Coat" features the talents of well known Contemporary Christian recording artist and legendary guitarist Phil Keaggy. Phil and Chip worked together writing and arranging this song useing a clever analogy, encouraging parents in the task of passing their faith on to their children and encouraging kids to make this faith their own. The result is a catchy, beatlesque sounding tune with a message that both children and parents will appreciate.

Chip Richter's new CD features twelve songs in all, including nine original tunes, one fresh Celtic sounding arrangement of the hymn 'Tis So Sweet, an unique version of "They'll Know We Are Christians by Our Love" and a wonderful rendering of "Spirit Song" written by New Hampshire based singer-songwriter, Bill Staines.
Several songs feature the instrumental talents of well-known Nashville studio musician David Johnson (fiddle, mandolin, dobro, cello, muontain dulcimer), recently nominated for a Dove award for his bluegrass album "Many Roads to Home". Other players include some of Chip's close friends Greg Aker (flute), Mike Glick (piano), Mike Rogowsky (drums), and Ginny Perkins (flute). Kate Perkins (sounding very much like Allison Krauss) adds some very artistic and tasteful background vocals to many of the tracks. Also lending a hand on background vocals a group of students from Heartland Christian School in Columbiana, OH , some of Chip's friends and neighbors, and Chip's own kids.

We think this is the best work from Chip Richter to date. The feeling of the whole project is very folky and rootsy in nature yet there is some real variety. From the very Celtic sounding 'Tis So Sweet to the contemporary "new grass" sound of Labybugs Livingroom to the jazzy swing feel of Love, Love, Love... there's something here the whole family will enjoy. And that is Chip's goal, to write and produce music for kids and their parents. We think you are going to enjoy this album just as much as your kids!

Chip's Dad's coat keeps him warm and you will like it!
I like the "Hey There How Do You Do" song! I like singing with Chip on this song and I love Chip. Thank you, Chip for making cds for me and Katie and Nick and Jack! We love singing with Chip!


I love the CD and it arrived in perfect condition
The CD was wrapped in bubble wrap and put in a bubble wrap mailer. It arrived in a very timely manner. I Love it so much. I use it in Cherub Choir. The children like the "Hey There How Do You Do" song. Thanks for your great service I will use CD baby in the future.

Chip's heart comes through with each song
I could write of what a great song writer and performer Chip is, and how much his music ministers to both children and adults. But perhaps the thing that strikes me most about this CD is how Chip's heart (his desire to serve God and to encourage and instruct his listeners) comes through with each and every song. I can highly recommend Chip's work, and especially My Dad's Coat

Becky Neiger

Never get tired of it!
My son listens to this CD almost every day. I can honestly say that we never get tired of hearing it. The music is excellent; the lyrics are inspiring and encouraging. We are so grateful for Chip's talent and all who contribute to making this music.

The Demchak family

Most requested music at our house.
This CD is always in the stereo. Our family sings and dances to the songs...a great variety of sounds on this CD. My favorite is "LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE" and the girls (2 and 4 yrs) really like "LADYBUG'S LIVING ROOM".

Carol Anderson

We love it!
We've heard this music on the Radio (WCRF), so I knew the kids would like it. We can enjoy it as a family. It is a fun way to reinforce the beliefs we hold as a family.
