When Dreams End is a unique and diverse album, showcasing Chris’ ever-expanding talents a songwriter,
guitarist, and vocalist. The album includes a Latin American based love song entitled “Her Name was

“Oh Papa”, a song which will be universally understood by anyone who has lost a father, “Bitter Tears”, a
song about the aftermath of a long term relationship ending in break up, and “When Dreams End”, a song
about finding your way back to innocence and spirituality. The album has 8 tracks, all unique, pulled
from numerous genres and influences. “Some of the session players asked where I come up with my
different chord changes and melodies. I just hear them and find them on the guitar, I said.” I don’t follow
any rules or formulas. I just express myself,” he added.
St John has had 4 number one hits on the World and European Indie charts, and several other top ten hits.
“I’m just glad people like what I have to say,” said St John. “I hope they like the new LP.”
The album was cut at Darkhorse and Sound Emporium studios in Nashville, with some of Music City’s
most renowned session musicians. “It started as an EP, but I kept writing, so we made it an LP.”
The album is produced by renowned artist and producer Stephen Wrench.
I heard an upbeat melody in my head one morning while working on my upcoming album Fly Away. I added lyrics on the fly and the song came out very fast. It takes a serious look at the plusses and minuses of modern technology in a fun way. It seemed to be infectious and something people would enjoy, so I removed one of the songs I’d planned for the album and replaced it with “Hey Siri”. I hope it makes people smile and they enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.
