Syracuse Bands - CHRISTOPHER AMES

Acoustic/Christian/Rock

Christopher Ames uses his music to get to the heart of our faith and to tell the story of his journey thus far. He's a simple guy. An earthly guy. A loving husband. A dad... But when he's performing the music that comes from the depths of his soul you truly see the light that shines brightest in his heart. With over 20 years experience as a full-time music journeyman, you can see why Christopher Ames has been recognized with numerous industry awards. He is a 9 time KCCM Award recipient (Kansas City Christian Music Award), and a MOMENTUM AWARD recipient presented in Nashville, TN. He is also the recipient of the SPIRIT OF UNITY Award (also presented in Nashville) for his commitment to community and fellowship. He's also been nominated for two SAMMY's in the Syracuse area.

Christopher Ames has 7 recorded CD projects on the Remnant Music Group label which includes his 2011 release titled JOURNEYMAN. His music is well received by all ages and has been recognized by the industry as well. His music has charted on Christian and Country radio charts. His 2008 CD titled Everyday With You crossed into the mainstream market where it received a nomination for Pop Album of the Year by the Syracuse Area Music Awards, a nomination for best Adult Contemporary song (LINGER) at the 2008 ISSA (Independent Singer Songwriter Awards) and 2 honorable mentions in the 2008 Song Door International Songwriting Competition. The track titled PICTURES OF US was a top 3 finalist in the 2011 Best Original Song Competition. In 2009, Christopher Ames released an original radio single called LEAD US INTO CHRISTMAS DAY. Radio stations across the USA, as well as countries including Italy, Germany, Portugal, Australia and more, added it to their play lists. The song has a Beatle-esque feel to it, but continues to offer that message of HOPE that Christopher Ames is so good at focusing on. It is certainly a Holiday crowd pleaser! Christopher has also licensed music from his CD's to a variety of outlets and has an endorsement partnership with Breedlove Guitars.

Audiences will love Christopher Ames, his sense of humor, his heartfelt stories of love, faith and family, his terrific arrangements of popular cover tunes and his all original music too!
