That’s followed by “Butterfly,” yet another soulful stroll along whatever delicate getaway that may exist in your mind by now.

The success of Chris Godber’s 2015 album ‘Starting Over’ launched him into the big leagues of Smooth Jazz, with headline appearances on top festival line-ups, and opening slots for, among others, Gerald Albright, Mindi Abair, Snarky Puppy and Tower of Power.
Picking up the sax in middle school band at age 12, 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 picked up 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. For over 20 years, Chris Godber has been leaving others breathless with his soulful saxophone playing and inspiring testimony.
