Seventeen year old singer/ songwriter Christian Yeager has signed a record deal with Lamon Records in Nashville, TN. A native from Mechanicsburg, PA, Yeager’s passion, dedication and love of music started at a very young age. With his first theater show at the age of five, he has gone on to do over twenty-five productions since and completed his first recording at the age of fifteen at County Q Studio Nashville with the guidance of Lee Bach. Yeager is a member of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians and ASCAP. He recently completed a songwriting course at Berklee College Of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and is planning to pursue a BBA major in Music Business.
“I’m so fortunate to work and collaborate with experienced and well-seasoned songwriters and musicians such as Lee Bach, Andy Timmons, Robin Branda, Forrest Brown and retired music executive Tom Long, who guided me along the way with my first single release project,” Yeager shares. “I’m learning every day how music is being created from writing the lyrics, putting the melody, the production and the marketability of a song together and I can’t wait to learn more.”
Musically influenced by his father, Yeager grew up listening to a wide range of musical genres, but recalls two favorites: “I only had two CDs growing up, and I would walk around my house carrying my little portable CD player, listening to Bobby Vinton and Lynn Anderson for hours on end.” His father used to entertain him and his sister by telling stories about being backstage at the Grand Ole Opry with Bill Monroe. When he was introduced to country music and the stories of Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks, and Randy Travis, he knew that these were the songs and stories he would like to share to everyone. Yeager has a love for God, his Country, and a passion to spread positive messages of love to all through his music.
“There are so many artists who have been the soundtrack to my life, and there have been so many songs that have had an impact on me. If I could just do that for one person, then I know that I’m doing my job right, and that is fulfilling enough for me,” shares Yeager.
Christian Yeager’s first single “Born For A Friday Night,” written by Andy Timmons, Chris Yarber, and Hunter Phelps, will be released on May 28 and will be available most everywhere music is sold and streamed, including iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify.
