Title - 'I'm Dreaming'
Artist - Chris St. John

For those unaware, over the last quarter century, Long Island Singer/Songwriter Chris St. John has truly led a diverse and successful professional career in the field of law as a prosecutor, judge and practicing attorney.

Now, his dream of lateral success in the music business is starting to become a reality, as his LP, I’m Dreaming, is now available on www.chrisstjohn.com, Soundcloud and all the major services.

His instantly satisfying first single from the record 'I Called You Rose,' hit Number #3 on the Euro Indie Music Charts and #8 on the World Indie Music Charts - with a second tune 'I’d Send You My Heart' - hitting the airwaves now.

The album, which includes 13 original songs - including the beautiful storytelling of the opener 'I Need A Horse,' the Summer's day ambiance of 'Your Baby Loves You,' the gentle one-two beats of 'Two Tender Angels,' the upbeat Americana Folk vibe of The Chance I Gave to You,' and a lush cover of 'Peggy O'' - also includes 'Never Forget the Day / Walk Through The Forest,' a musical score that seamlessly connects two compositions.

1. 'I Need A Horse'
2. 'I Called You Rose'
3. 'Your Baby Loves You'
4. 'Pacific Sunrise'
5. 'Dreams are Free'
6. 'Two Tender Angels'
7. 'A Box of Jewels'
8. 'The Winds they Blow'
9. 'Looking at the Sky'
10. 'The Chances I Gave to You'
11. 'Peggy O''
12. 'The Guests have Gone Home'
13. 'You Sang to Me'
14. 'Never Forget the Day / Walk Through The Forest'
15. 'I'll Send you My Heart'

The topics include the loss of love at a young age; the loss of his parents; the birth of his son John (now 18) and life with his wife of 27 years Elisabeth; a surprise DNA discovery; a serious illness where he was put in a medically induced coma, and a nurse sang him back to life; the loss of a young relative in a car accident and the subsequent climb out of depression; alcohol addiction and recovery; and a gift from his grandmother that he intends to return to her someday.

“My professional career is what I do. These songs are who I am. They are about my personal life. The songs have been written over about 30 years, with four new ones written in the last several months to finish up the album,” St. John reveals.

Chris also worked in the State Department, participating in the Reagan-Gorbachev Summit in 1987; and lived, studied, and taught in China later that year. He was also a Congressional Aide and is now a volunteer firefighter.

In 2015, he and his friend started a not-for-profit charity called HALO Missions, which provides medical care, clothing, food, farming equipment, and surgeries for AIDS orphans and the extreme poor throughout Africa, Central America, and the Caribbean.

St. John adds, “The title of the LP is ‘I’m Dreaming’ because some of these songs were dreamed in my sleep and written down when I awoke. Others came from daydreams."

"There are so many references to dreaming in the album. I guess I like to dream. People have told me I should write a book or make an album. This is both to me."
