"Chris Rosser is his own tour de force. An accomplished producer and instrumentalist, a graceful writer and a proficient singer, Rosser's Hidden Everywhere is an outstanding expression of all of his talents combined."- Kari Estrin, Sing Out Magazine

 "These are not songs of the moment nor are they 'ditties' or anything of that ilk. They are life set to music so well that you wish you had the talent but, lacking that, are glad that he does. Sometimes you need more than the music or the lyrics—you need the music AND lyrics welded seamlessly together and that is precisely what he gives us. Hidden Everywhere is nothing less than food for the soul."- Frank Gutch, Jr, Folk and Acoustic Music Exchange

The Holy Fool (2000)

 

"Now he has at last released The Holy Fool and it's an affirmation of Rosser's considerable talents, with more fine songs combining often-unexpected lyrics, with a tastefully eclectic musical backing. At the center remains Rosser's warm personable voice..."  - George Graham, WVIA-FM

"What evolved planet did this person drop in from? It gives one pause when someone so talented and unique is also so unassuming...Rosser's themes and instrumentation, indeed the very spirit in his songs, span many places, and many times. "  -Frank Goodman, Puremusic.com

The Unraveling (2008)

 

“The Unraveling is an enthralling new CD showcasing some of the nicest acoustic world world beat blends coming out of the many aromatic sonic flavors of Eastern and Middle Eastern origin. Grab this perfectly balanced mixture of jazz, ethnic, chamber music and a dash of funkiness. I can’t live without it. An absolute stunner!”

Go find this album and get lost in the world for a while. It’s a nice place. 5 big fat stars all around.”

— Chris Cooper, Smoky Mountain News
