The development deal is a milestone in advancing Monaghan’s musical career as he works toward gaining a signed record deal. Copeland is renowned in the country music capital of Nashville, Tenn., having worked with artists such as Rachel Williams, Drake Jensen and Lisa Lambert. As part of her Artist Showcase, Chris performed in front of a sold-out crowd at Nashville’s Listening Room Cafe in August 2013. With well over 100 solo acoustic shows under his belt, Monaghan’s impressive resume of performance venues includes Ripken Stadium, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and Nashville’s iconic Bluebird Cafe where country superstars such as Garth Brooks and Taylor Swift were discovered.
“Chris is one of those rare artists who possess both amazing raw talent and a deep passion for music,” says Copeland. “He has a rich, honest, emotional delivery that connects with his audience. He is a young artist on the verge of stardom!”
Monaghan’s music has an acoustic pop-rock feel and has been compared to the likes of singer-songwriters, John Mayer and Dave Matthews.
Among his numerous upcoming performances, Monaghan will lend his musical talents to the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure for a second time, singing in front of 30,000 people as they walk or run to support breast cancer awareness on Oct. 20, in Hunt Valley, Md. He will return to Nashville’s Blue Bird Cafe for a sold-out Saturday night performance on Oct. 26.
For Monaghan, music is not just a hobby, it’s his passion, and his first single is an expression of his ardor. Featured as the official song of the 2013 Cal Ripken World Series, “Shameless” encourages everyone to chase their dream. Monaghan says the message of the song is, “To not give up. If you love something enough, get up and go get it.”
This inspirational message is prevalent not only in his musical works, but also in his community and charitable work. Monaghan wants to use his music for community outreach. He hopes to partner with a charitable organization in the near future to help raise funds and awareness for one of the many causes he cares about. In performing at an organization event and donating 100 percent of proceeds from albums sold to the charity’s cause, he wishes to spread the encouraging message “Shameless” describes.
Organizations interested in partnering with Chris Monaghan to raise funds and elevate awareness for their cause can contact his management at firstname.lastname@example.org. They are considering various options at the moment and are open to new ones.
