Chip Davis is an inspiration to me:
-He dared to dream.
-He dared to risk.
-He dared to embrace a creative philosophy, early on, deemed unpopular and undesirable to the music industry.
-He dared to activate and launch his dreams in order to realize them.
-He dared to move in a direction different from others.
Chip Davis "DARED TO DREAM" ... and so can we!
It's time to realize "your" dreams!
In 2019 I'm expanding the "DARE TO DREAM" theme with a desire of motivating and energizing you to the "more" you were called to.
It's time to live again, dear friend!
Dream again and be energized by the desires lying dormant inside of you.

MANNHEIM STEAMROLLER EXTRAORDINAIRE comes highly recommended, and its first piece, "Hallelujah," is produced with a feverish, energizing pitch curiously matched by my own. 
Mmm.... it's something else!
You must try it!
Facts produced by the Mannheim Steamroller:
*Chip Davis is the founder and creator of the Mannheim Steamroller.
-Mannheim has sold over 40 million albums making them one of the top 50 best selling artists during the past two decades.
-If you lined up all the CDs sold, they'd stretch from New York to Los Angeles and then into the Pacific Ocean, more than 3000 miles.
-If you stacked up the CDs they would be taller than the Sears Tower, 645 times taller.
-The brand's name comes from Mannheim, Germany where Mozart lived. Mannheim Steamroller is the name for an 18th century musical technique known as the crescendo.
-Chip formed the American Gramaphone record label in 1974 when no label would take his music. Today, American Gramaphone is one of the most successful independent music franchises in history.
-Mannheim Steamroller is the #1 Christmas music artist of all times, selling over 27 million albums. The second highest Christmas artist is Elvis Presley.
-The top-selling non-music product on the Mannheim Steamroller website is Cinnamon Hot Chocolate. The hottest ring tone for mobile phones is "Carol of the Bells."
-In addition to writing, arranging and recording 35 albums, Chip is the author of five children's books and has created an entire line of food and bath products under the Mannheim Steamroller name.
-Chip's first job was a telephone lineman. He then went on to sing in Norman Luboff Choir after college and later became an advertising jingle writer in Omaha.
-In Christmas of 2008, Chip gave away one million CDs to U.S. troops, their families, military hospitals and other support groups.

-Mannheim Steamroller is the only group ever to perform twice at the annual Lighting of the National Christmas Tree Ceremony during the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush Administrations.
-The music industry told Chip "Don't do a Christmas album because that will signal the end of your career." Mannheim Steamroller Christmas went on to sell five million copies after Chip produced it himself, and changed the sounds of Christmas music forever.
