Music Moves Us
Music moves us, and there isn’t much more inspiring than a good song. It can also change our moods, and sometimes take us from a bad day to the Best Day Yet.
Chris Doolittle is a passionate musician and also believes in the power of music to heal the heart and mind; he has been so kind as to collaborate with The Invisible Riptide in a way that lets us showcase how important each element is in kids’ overall mental well-being. Sometimes it’s about getting up and moving around to get those wiggles out; other times it’s about taking a moment with headphones to calm the anxiety and nerves.
Chris Doolittle’s first performance was at a McDonalds in Simi Valley, CA in 1976 for a short lived program called the Big Mac Supper Club. So began a love affair with making music and performing for food. In the 80s he formed The Front (https://thefrontband.net/bio/) which became one of the more popular Kansas City acts of the time, doing shows with John Waite, The Romantics, Modern English, Berlin, and a few other popular acts of the day. Chris left the band shortly before they signed with Sony Records and joined the millions of Americans who are forced to make a living to feed their families. In the 90’s Chris began writing, recording and performing Children’s music in and around his hometown of Kansas City. He has performed all over the midwest either as a rock act or a Children’s performer and continues to record and produce music from his home recording studio. No longer part of the labor force, Chris is collaborating with The Invisible Riptide , writing/producing songs and performing as they work to help families with mental health wellness.
