Back in November of 1999 Chris and Ana drove down to Boston to appear on the WERS morning show the Coffee House.
At that time the Coffee House was one of the biggest platforms for acoustic and folk music and it was a pretty big deal.
Chris and Ana played six songs that morning. Three of them made it as bonus tracks on Some Things Never Change, but the other three performances haven’t been heard since the day they were broadcast over the airwaves.
For the final Bandcamp Friday the entire six song set was remastered from the original soundboard recordings.

The great folks at Burlington City Arts, who were nice enough to invite to play their Summer Music Series, have posted a video of my performances of Austin and Hold Up on their Facebook page. It’s a great video that was put together by the folks at Robot Dog Studio.
Back at the end of July, just before I played my first Vermont Gig in over 10 years, Seven Days ran an article about new albums released by Ex-Pats. They were nice enough to include Already Gone in their picks. Here’s the link:

The first reviews are in for Already Gone, and it’s being well received by critics! Here are some of the highlights, but please follow the links below to read the reviews in their entirety!
“Titchner, a sprightly acoustic guitarist and singer, has a fresh, springy sound, bright and coursing like a brook. He also has a clear, natural voice and a knack—for better and worse—for fitting long, complex, grammatically correct speeches into catchy singalong tunes.”
“Chris Titchner’s new release, ‘Already Gone’, combines catchy songwriting with a complete disregard of stylisitic homogeny. Folk, pop, New Orleans jazz…they all coexist on an album anchored by Titchner’s consistent acoustic guitar work, ear-grabbing lyrics, and solid vocals.”
“The musical equivalent of a novelist blossoming in obscurity, Titchner has taken the long way around to get where he is now but the wait was worth it if the result is such a killer back porch set like this… this is [a] top shelf folkie find.”
The Citizen Times was kind enough to list Chris’ Already Gone CD release show in Asheville, NC, as one the week’s best live music bets! Read up on what they had to say here, and catch Titchner with special guest Chris Rosser at 7 p.m. at French Broad Brewery on Feb. 20!
New T-shirts are now available with the new “Stubborn Head, Foolish Heart” logo in honor of the new album, Already Gone! They’ll be for sale at the album’s release shows until supplies run out!
