Chris Godber isn’t just another sax player. When Godber performs his goal is not just to entertain, but to inspire. Despite being told by doctors he wouldn’t be able to play the saxophone due to of the severity of his asthma, Godber took to it anyway. Picking up the sax in middle school band at age 12, Godber has been leaving others breathless ever since. He was first drawn to the sound of the saxophone while living in Germany. His family was military and while being stationed overseas the majority of their entertainment came from music as they only received one channel on their television. As Godber recalls, “I was a product of the 80’s and Kenny G was getting pretty popular around that time. My parents were Big Kenny G fans!” No doubt it may have sparked his appreciation for the saxophone, but he definitely has a sound all his own with a healthy dose of R&B and Gospel roots showing through.
Godber’s last album [STARTING OVER] an Amazon Best Seller in the NeoSoul genre for 2016, launched his career into the Smooth Jazz realm. The first two singles, “Rain” and “Chill” landed him on the Top 50 charts of smoothjazz.com. Rain hit #6 on Groove Jazz Music Charts and both were heard daily on Sirius XM’s Watercolors. Now, Godber is heating things up with the release of an all new single for summer 2017, “Sizzle”. Produced by Adam Hawley, it provides a glimpse of Godber’s upcoming 2018 album, Momentum!
