FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Contact: Chris Moyer 509-535-2703 CHRISTOPHER MOYER & HIS ORCHESTRA TO EXPAND ON FAN BASE Spokane, WA - November 12, 2004 Christopher Moyer, not satisfied with his success in the Pacific Northwest, has decided to embark on an agressive campaign to present his music nationwide. "The audiences in the tri-state area have been great," says Moyer, "but I've recently had some inquiries from L.A., Louisiana and the New England area about my CD so maybe it's time to reach out to them." Moyer's CD "The First Time", was recorded live in Spokane, WA at the historic Fox Theater. "I'm going to increase my presence at radio stations nationwide, and on the Internet. If that generates enough interest out there maybe I can put together a tour. The guys in the band have asked me about that from time to time."
