Welcome to my webpage and welcome to the end of another summer season. One of my highlights this summer has been to perform at so many very cool private parties. These parties have ranged from weddings, 50th anniversaries all the way to backyard pool parties and in some very lovely settings. These events have been blessings to me. If you would ever like to book me for a private social function, click here:
It has been another summer patio season and I have enjoyed performing Sunday afternoons from 1-4 p.m. at the Thirsty Cactus in Dundas. I will continue to perform there in my weekly residency there, as well as lead their open mics (last Tuesday of every month). To celebrate 9 years of faithfully performing there I will be holding a special show on the evening of Saturday September 10. More details to follow.
One of my least favourite experiences this summer has been falling victim to Covid-19. I began to experience symptoms on the evening of July 3 and tested positive (via a rapid test) the following morning. On July 7, a PCR test confirmed that I indeed did have Covid-19 and began to isolate and get better. I must admit that it did hit me harder than expected and by day 11 was starting to feel more like myself. I am grateful for science and for the vaccines/booster that I had. I could not imagine how bad it could have been if I had not been immunized. For those who are still on the fence, or who don't want to be vaccinated for personal reasons, I want to encourage you to do it. I would not take the chance and see if my immune system could handle it. It is just too risky.
In June, I also had to say goodbye to my church community, Graceworks, as the church made the difficult decision to close. As this professional door also closes for me (and having worked for them for 20 years), I am encouraged to know that I am open now to begin a new vocational chapter in my life. It is my hope to continue to spend more time creating new music and performing, with the hopes of visiting some new locales to share my music with.
I want to thank all of my Patreon members for their support as I begin to perform online shows for a very appreciative audience. If you want to find out more about these special online shows, you can check out some complimentary shows on my YouTube page and then sign up at www.patreon.com/christopherclause. For as much as a Starbucks coffee, you can enjoy three online shows a month!!
I have taken a bit of a break from recording but will return to session work at the end of August to resume work on “Deep Blue” as well as my next worship album.
I look forward to seeing you either at a live show or an online event very very soon. I hope this has been a summer of blessings for you, and want to thank you for your interest in my work.
