The twelve tracks of "Edge of a Song" are compelling and contemplative.  The overall
spiritual vibe of the collection is reflected in Raman's choice as producer to include a
small choir of friends on "Edge of the Wind", "Nature of Things", and the gratitude-filled,
country-flavored closer "Thank You".  Chip's arrangements on this project reflect his
close connection to the
Kerrville Folk Festival where, he says, you play your songs at a
midnight campfire and people are sometimes inspired to join in.  He approached the song
arrangements much as he does his paintings; layering just the right "colors" to achieve his
desired effect.
