Mark your calendars! The music video for Chris Eberlein's new single "These Words (Softly Spoken)" will premier on Friday, January 5, 2018.
Says Chris: "I had this very singular vision early on for what I wanted the video to be, if there would even be a video. It took a lot of searching and prodding, but we got our hands on a lot of awesome visuals that represent what the lyrics are about in my song. Being in love, especially when you're making a lifelong commitment, is such a risk and there are so many emotions that flood the senses. There's hope. There's fear. There's apprehension. It's a total rush that makes you feel you can do anything and take on the world. I wanted a visual accompaniment that would incorporate all that."

Good things come to those who wait. The lead single "These Words (Softly Spoken)" from Chris' fourth studio album debuts worldwide on January 2, 2018.

What a true Throwback Thursday! After three years in the process and over a year since he was open to communicating through the adoption agency, my birthfather from South Korea has sent me a letter (currently in translation) and pictures. So surreal.
By the way, can you tell we're related?
November 3, 2017
Anything for Selenaaaaass! It was so surreal and I am so glad I got to be a part of history as La Reina de Tejana Selena Quintanilla-Perez received her well-deserved Hollywood Walk of Fame star tonight.
I first learned about the Queen about a year before her tragic death through a friend. She was the first to inspire me to even consider getting into music. Without her, I probably wouldn't ever have become a recording artist.
Selena, you will be forever missed, but NEVER forgotten. "Con tu adios te llevas mi corazon..."
October 15, 2017
The countdown begins.

Jardin at the Wynn in Vegas is always a stunning place to get brunch!
June 18, 2017
I decided to make it back up to Idaho this weekend last minute and see one of my best friends, my Grandma Margaret. It was a lot of sleepless driving, stress and anxiousness, but I made finally made it and I am so glad I did. I can't believe it's been over 3 years since I last saw her, and I will NEVER let that much time pass again. She didn't know I was coming so I got to surprise her and spend an incredible four days with her, just reminiscing and catching up. I am so grateful to have her in my life still, now as she approaches 93 years old young. I also got to see my parents and my Aunt Sara, the latter of which I haven't seen in a long time too even though she's my closest aunt! Overall, it was a splendid trip and undeniably worth it.
My hometown also changed so much and it was great to relax and "veg" out for a bit. It's a wonder what three years can do to a city!
This trip reminded me something very, very important: Life is about those you love and the moments you spend with them.
June 4, 2017
Thanks for having me, Wynn.

We had a lovely time checking out Abbot Kinney tonight!
April 24, 2017
I'm 32! I am so thankful for such dear friends and family who remind me of the true meaning of being alive and what matters most. It's not money. It's certainly not working yourself to death. It's about sharing moments with those you love. I am truly blessed to have so many amazing people in my life!
April 20, 2017
My sis and I jumped on the Starbucks Unicorn frap train! It wasn't bad either!

I tried on my first bra...incorrectly because it was upside down.
April 11, 2017
I made it to Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve just outside of Lancaster. I've wanted to go FOR YEARS, but it was never so amazing due to the drought. I am SO glad I made it because it was absolutely stunning! I needed some R&R with nature and it definitely fulfilled that desire.

I hate the gym, but going with my wife makes it fun!
March 31, 2017
Every March 31st I reflect on a truly astoundingly talented artist, an icon, who first inspired me way back when to even get into music as a singer and whose music I continue to play to this day on a regular basis. Her name was Selena (THE one and only). Her death shocked me to the core, affecting me on so many levels...a moment in time that I will never forget because it was so impactful. In an ironic way, losing Selena was also a loss of childhood innocence because I realized that the world wasn't all posies and roses.
Thank you, Selena, for all you gave me. Unfortunately, we never met and I only just started to get into your music by the time of your passing. I'm not Mexican-American, but your music spoke to me. Your talent, your drive, your tenacity, your beauty, your passion, your humor I shall never forget.
Con tu adios te llevas mi corazon. RIP Selena, La Reina.

January 16, 2017
Can you believe it's been 10 years since Chris embarked on his solo career as the heartfelt indie singer/songwriter we know and love? The year was 2007 when "Brother (Make It Right)" became a buzz single across the Internet, creating a stir with its meaningful lyrics and ambient pop backings. Decade: The Best of Chris Eberlein is the artist's debut compilation collection, featuring over 20 of Chris' best recordings, including all his singles. Slated to drop later this year, this is the definitive Chris Eberlein discography that you won't want to miss.

F is for Fucked. Thank you, Middle America. I am seriously in shock and peaved that so many of you would elect someone as volatile and unpredictable, not to mention inexperienced, as Donald Trump. Clearly you are out of your minds. *slow claps*

Enjoyed a beautiful day in Chinatown with wifey & Ericka!
June 15, 2016
I decided to introduce myself to the ad agency floor our studio shares space with with a gigantic (seriously, it's huge - feeds 100 people) cake with an edible photo of me!
June 2, 2016
Date night dinner was a simple one tonight - two kinds of kale (I love the darkest green varieties best - they've got this peppery bitterness I love and the texture is amazing) with roasted chicken, blue cheese and hard boiled egg. It was delicious.
May 22, 2016
What a wonderful time getting delicious Korean food and coffee with these fellow KADs!
May 15, 2016
My wifey and I had a great night (can you tell in that second picture? LOL!) in Old Town Pasadena with our friend Ericka eating at a great sushi joint (A'Float - literally, it all comes around floating in a boat!) and enjoying a well deserved night on the town!
May 12, 2016
It's been awhile since my wife and I have been able to have a romantic date night, so tonight I went all out. I made homemade stir fry with marinated steak, honey teriyaki brown rice plus dipping sauces and for dessert raspberries in papaya with cream. It was a stunning spread to say the least!
May 11, 2016
I've lived in LA for almost 9 years and tonight was the first time I ever hiked to the top of Mt. Hollywood. How can that be??! It's an absolutely gorgeous hike with amazing vistas of Glendale and you literally walk the spine at the top with stunning views of literally every angle you can imagine. The sunset is to die for!
May 4, 2016
Tonight I didn't look into any recipes and just cobbled together what I call a cheesy chicken tomato basil bake! My wife really wanted something with chicken and pasta, so voila! I baked it in a cast iron because I love that and it turned out quite nicely.
May 1, 2016
Who says eating for one has to be from the microwave or takeout? Tonight I made myself a pork tenderloin with a rosemary, oregano and cilantro rub and baked romaine hearts sprinkled with herbs, spices and Parmesan cheese. Yum!
April 27, 2016
Tonight I whipped up a lemon orange chicken. It was delicious!
April 25, 2016
One of the best things I've ever received. Can't. Even. Deal. (Yes, that is a Britney Spears shower curtain.)
April 24, 2016
Thank you everyone for the wonderful birthday wishes, flurry of gifts and words of encouragement. It truly means so much to have such amazing people in my life! I'm 31...AAAAAHHH!!!
I spent the weekend kayaking (and nursing a fractured toe as a result of slipping on the dock), going to coffee with different people and then having an awesome dinner with a small group of friends and my wifey at one of my favorite Korean BBQ spots in Koreatown.
It was also a weekend of conclusions and new beginnings. After almost 8 years working in nightlife and seemingly everything in between, I put in my notice of resignation. With new prospects on the horizon, it was simply time to move forward. It's nerve-wracking, but a necessary risk.
April 22, 2016
I can't wait to start rehearsals next week for some shows in LA! I'm energized to get back on stage and in front of y'all!
April 19, 2016

December 31, 2015
Happy New Year's Eve! Tonight I made pork tenderloin I marinated in red wine and garlic on top of a bed of red potatoes. It was absolutely amazing!

We enjoyed a wonderful time at the wifey's friends' holiday house get together. Our daughter is clearly a drunk, but she's a laugh. I made another batch of my bread & butter pudding, which was divine! I also swamped the floor with the first Cards Against Humanity game I've ever played.
Happy holidays, y'all!
November 26, 2015
Happy Thanksgiving, y'all! I ended up opting for baking ham instead of the traditional turkey, mostly because I couldn't find just turkey breasts around here and didn't want to roast an entire turkey.
November 25, 2015
Tonight I made two batches of bread & butter pudding for Thanksgiving. One for me and one for who I call my "gay parents" for their annual Thanksgiving get together!
November 7, 2015
Tonight I made us an original recipe I'm calling the Steak Wreath. Perfect as we get into the holidays!

Chris is back! The singer and songwriter returns with a brand new extended play - Presenting...Chris Eberlein - on October 20, 2015.
"I decided to title it 'Presenting' because this is me reintroducing myself again as a musician to the public," Chris says. "It's a very eclectic grab bag of songs and I wanted it that way so people could get a mixture of what makes me, well, me."
Presenting... will be preceded by the single "Standing There Alone," described as an electro-pop song in the vein of Chris' first singles and featuring a bold vocal performance, typically witty lyrics and a beatboxed beat.
Pre-orders will be available soon so stay tuned here for more information.

I've hit 176 lbs after what feels like the longest cut ever. I'm pulling myself out of my cut and upping the weights again.
July 19, 2015
This is my savory bacon kale frittata. It looks complicated, but it's actually extremely simple - it just looks like it'd take a long time to make. Nutritious and delightful!
July 17, 2015
I've been in the kitchen again! Wielding my brand new cast iron skillet (LOVE by the way), I created this terrific crispy chicken & roasted Brussels sprouts dish for dinner, coupled with sauteed squash and a sweet side of raspberries in cream.

I've discovered the joys of the kitchen! I wasn't much of a cook/chef in my youth mainly because I was all over the place and when I was hungry I just wanted food and didn't want to wait, but I can tell you I'm quite enjoying being quasi domestic. I made this for us last night and it was delicious...my take on the ole sausage 'n peppers recipe!
PS - my aunt sent me the picture below along with her gift. #95StaysAlive

Today marks 20 years since Selena was shot at 23. It marks a significant time in my life especially not only because I had just been introduced to her music by a dear elementary friend, but also since it was big news.. Up to that point in time, I didn't even consider music as a means of personal expression (ie, singing) or a career. Even though I'm not Latino, she was truly a legendary performer, artist and a good human being whose music and life touched me in so many ways I can't even list them. I owe my entire future - there would've been no radio play, no awards, no music on TV shows, no Berklee, no Kpop boi - to this woman who touched millions of lives in life and millions more in death for it was she and only she who gave me the inkling idea to sing.
March 7, 2015
I met my goal!

Merry Christmas, darling.
December 13, 2014
How I spent my Friday night: playing Xmas music on AppleTV and putting together my Xmas present from my parents. After 2 1/2 hours, she's up!
December 11, 2014
This week I welcomed a new member of the family: I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine, and he shall be my Squishy.
Merry Christmas, y'all!
December 6, 2014
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Casa de Christophe.
December 1, 2014
It's December. Wow. This year's just flown by, hasn't it? It's funny to think back and recall how scrawny I was then and how it's only been 10 months since I got to work (b*tch) with my fitness. And now here I am, studying to become a personal trainer on the side. Again, wow!
I'm excited to announce I finally have a new record coming out. It'll have little fanfare I know since it's been so many years since I had a single out there, but I'm ecstatic for it. "Autompne-Hiver" grew legs this fall and it's one of the best things I've ever written, but it doesn't represent the album at all. Not As One (the name of one of the songs on the album) is a vocal pop album like most of my releases have been. Just knowing I have something to finally put out in album form really makes me happy. "Rain" is the single that will lead off the album and it's probably one of the best things I've ever done too; a dance pop song with lots of emotion and feeling about a certain ex of mine (who will know it's about him when he hears it). There will be some ballads for those of you still wondering if I can bring it vocally and a live and remixed version of my big hit "Twisted Up." Enjoy!
December 24th is my Grandma Margaret's 90th birthday - can I get a WOW?! She's one of my best friends and I plan to celebrate her special day with a surprise visit. At 90, I doubt there's much anyone really wants or needs, and I know that seeing me after so long will be the best gift I could give her. Our family is also putting together something of a montage of 90 memories for her special day and I've been asked to submit a video of it, which I wholeheartedly will do.
Tomorrow is the most important day of the year: Britney Spears' bday. Honor it, bitches.
November 5, 2014
Happy Britney Day, Las Vegas! Praise Godney!

It's Movember again, that time of year we menfolk grow a mustache to raise awareness for men's health issues! I do mine every year in honor of my Grandpa Jim who lost his battle to prostate cancer. My facial hair grows like cray, so I'll be sporting a full mustache in a couple days LOL!
October 29, 2014
I'm ready for a magical Halloween. Are you?
October 24, 2014
A girlfriend paid me a great compliment today: she said "You're a goal oriented person that I know will succeed because you have a goal and you work toward it to make it happen." A year ago I never thought I'd say I love working out, and now 10 months & 50 lbs later it's literally one of my favorite and most relaxing things. My next goal is to get my personal trainer certification. I'm doing my MBA and working on a new record in my spare time already, and I know it'll be hard work (b*tch), but to hear the handful of clients I have now who told me because of me how much better they feel both physically and emotionally makes me so darn happy for them. Let's do this!
October 17, 2014
I'm starting my NASM personal trainer certification! So psyched to be able to share my love of fitness and training with others!
