about

Ohio based, Award Winning Children's, Singer-Songwriter Chip Richter is hitting the internet air-waves and Family Music Playlists with a SMILE behind his mask!

Smile Behind My Mask is Chip's new single for kids and adults and anyone really who might be feeling a little anxious or uneasy about the idea of people wearing masks in public spaces and maybe having to wear one yourself.

Chip says, "I wrote this song over a few days, and most of it while watching the daily Covid-19 briefings with Ohio Governor Mike Dewine and Health Director Dr Amy Acton. They were talking a lot about masks and how important it was going to be for all us to be participating. I was just imagining how odd the world was going to look with everyone wearing masks... then I thought if I'm thinking and feeling this way what are kids going to be thinking? I hope this song will help bring a little calm to a potentially scary or anxious situation for children and grown-ups."

​Smile Behind My Mask features Chip and his band The Munks, Brad Shell aka Dr Groove on Drums, Marty Cummings aka Mr Marty on Bass and Greg Aker aka Grego on Whistle. The song was recorded and tracked virtually connecting Groove House Studio, Kensington Ohio, Real Life Studio- Canton, Oh and Improv Studio- Columbiana, Oh all connecting to and tracking in Chip's Nutshell Studio- Columbiana, Oh. Chip explains, "We were all like everybody else, on lock-down or isolation so I thought maybe we could record this tune together virtually and that's what we did. It was actually pretty cool and I think it came out great! I had to keep it simple but that really works for this song."

lyrics

Smile Behind My Mask
by Chip Richter

There’s a Smile behind my mask
There’s a Smile behind my mask
I just thought I'd say before you ask
There’s a Smile behind my mask
Yes I’m feeling fine
Yes I’m feeling fine
I’m just doin’ my part keepin’ my spit mine
Yes I’m feeling fine

I know… Things are lookin’ pretty strange out there
About everywhere
You look... people wearing something over their face
In the public space
But I just wanna say

There’s a Smile behind my mask
There’s a Smile behind my mask
I just thought I'd say before you ask
There’s a Smile behind my mask

Break-

You know… I’m not wearing this mask for myself
It’s for someone else
Maybe you or anybody else I happen to
Get close to
That’s just when I’ll say

There’s a Smile behind my mask
There’s a Smile behind my mask
I just thought I'd say before you ask
There’s a Smile behind my mask
Yes I’m feeling fine
Yes I’m feeling fine
I’m just doin’ my part keepin’ my spit mine
Yes I’m feeling fine

So you do your part and I’ll do mine
And we’ll keep smilin’ you and I
Before you know it it’ll be July
And I think we’ll be
Fine
