The book is an antology that includes a hundred Chris Cappell’s songs. The songs, still unreleased, are published in english language, the one that Cappell used to compose them.
In his songs Chris express an equivalence between music and life: an unbreakable link from his emotional point of view.
The songs are expressive moments and memories, situations revaling his inner world and his history, his hopes and his dreams.
Music becomes a way to evolve and improve, a sort of “ascesis”.
This volume is targeted to those who are young not because of their age, but instead because they own the capacity to get intrigued and thrilled with unusal spiritual adentures, original inner paths, tuned with expectations and emotions that find their complete and significant expression in the pop music.
