Chris Henderson releases second album

Former Estevan resident Chris Henderson is thrilled with his second album, My Turn.

The country music album, which was released on March 17, is his first since Follow the Signs in 2008. Henderson had a hand in writing all of the songs on My Turn, and that provided the inspiration behind the album's name.

“I'm very pleased with the product,” Henderson told Lifestyles. “In my opinion, I think it's better than the first go-around.”

Henderson noted that this album was recorded in Regina, at Brad Prosko's B-Rad Studio, and with Saskatchewan talent, which allowed him to keep the focus on Saskatchewan as much as possible.

Follow the Signs was recorded in Nashville.

Prosko has been part of Henderson's band for the last four years, and other musicians who are involved with the album have been with Henderson on-stage.

Family plays an important role in the album, too. His brother, Joel, who performs under the moniker of Poor Nameless Boy, co-wrote one song, Dance or 3, and lends back-up vocals for multiple songs. His father, Donn, sings a verse for Taking Sides.

“My mom, (Linda Henderson), did the calligraphy that's found on the back cover of the album as well,” said Henderson.

He has recorded a number of singles since that first album was released, but the cost and time associated with a full-length album delayed the release of the sophomore recording.

The response to My Turn has been great, he said.

“People are starting to write me this week, and getting back to me, and people on iTunes have been e-mailing the website, but the album's doing really well,” he said. “The single (I sure hope he Loves You) has been doing really well across the country, and I'm excited to release more as well.”

My Turn was released a couple weeks after the finalists for the Saskatchewan Country Music Association Awards were announced, but the timing was coincidental, he said. Initially he wanted to release the album last fall, but he decided to delay the project until the spring to pursue other opportunities.

“Given that there were a few other artists that were releasing some stuff, we tried to time it so that each musician had their own time (to be in the spotlight),” he said.

But it definitely helps that his album was released so close to the ceremony. Henderson is up for four SCMA Awards this year; they'll be handed out in mid-April.

Henderson will be touring to help promote the album, but details of the tour have yet to be announced.
