Our guest this week on the Art of the Song Coffeehouse Podcast is the Grammy Award winning founder of Mannheim Steamroller, Chip Davis. A musical prodigy who wrote his first song at age 6, Chip went on to form the American Gramaphone label in 1974. A multiplatinum selling artist, he is widely credited with launching the New Age music genre. Mannheim Steamroller has sold more than 40 million albums, making it one of the 50 top-selling musical artists of all time and the top-selling Christmas artist of all time.
Beyond his work with Mannheim Steamroller, Chip Davis has developed Ambient Therapy, an innovative use of composed and natural sound designed to heal and calm, which NASA has approved for use by astronauts in long-range space travels. Davis is the author of seven best-selling children’s books, and the creator of a line of food & home products under the Mannheim Steamroller moniker.
