The original soundtrack of southwind was composed by Chris Cutting. Chris has been singing and composing for over 10 years, and his music style is very much the result of early influence.  Growing up, he was most inspired by the Cirque du Soleil albums from the 90’s, and in a way, these served as a great form of early education (though he studied composition and vocal performance at GVSU, MI).  Vocally he focusses on both the baritone and countertenor registers, and has proven himself to constantly be pushing the limits to deliver the unique and unexpected.  He has released three albums; This Journey (2001), Cutopia (2003), and Home Again (2011), the most recent of which is available on all major online distribution sites.
