About Chris Whittington and Bright Portal:
Texas-based singer/songwriter Chris Whittington recently released his debut EP, Bright Portal, a collection of melodic, guitar driven tracks woven with symphonic overtures and lyrics planted in the truth of Scripture. The musician collaborated on Bright Portal with fellow Texan, CCM pioneer Kemper Crabb, known for his work with Caedmon’s Call, Radiohalo and ArkAngel. The new EP is available on amazon.com and other online retail outlets.
“My life has been a twisting path filled with surprises, but music has remained a constant,” Whittington says. “Bright Portal is a collection of all of my musical influences so far in my life, including David Bowie, Kemper Crabb, Led Zeppelin and Caedmon’s Call.”
Whittington, who has shared the stage with Crabb and Caedmon’s Call, called on Crabb to produce Bright Portal. The two met in the 1970s in a record store and became fast friends. Whittington and Crabb are both part of Colony 3, a creative community committed to learning how to think biblically about everything.
