Recording artist and University of Mobile alumnus Chris Lockwood released a new solo project, “Coming Alive,” with 8Eighty Records on Sept. 24. This project includes eight original songs all written by Lockwood and will only be available for purchase through the 8Eighty Records online store a www.8eightyrecords.com.
“Coming Alive” is a solo project separate from the group Lockwood is commonly associated with, 33 Miles. 33 Miles was nominated for the GMA Dove award for “Best New Artist” and has had numerous top 10 and top 20 radio singles. Lockwood’s songwriting was also utilized in the song “One Life to Love” which won the BMI “Song of the Year.”
Lockwood said Coming Alive “started as an experiment to see what would happen if I, for a moment in time, stepped away from the politics of the music industry to make music simply for the pure joy of it. This was a time for me to step away from co-writing for a short season, and write everything myself while moving into a more prominent producer role. I can't say that it's perfect by any means, but for my first go, I'm pretty proud of it.
“More than anything, I love the songs, because they're the best ones I've recorded, to date, that represent me as a writer/artist,” he said.
