Initially, Manheim Steamroller was the alias of composer and record producer Chip Davis. The name stems from a classical German music technique Mannheimer Walze, which refers to a crescendo passage which rises over a melodic line with an ostinato bass line playing behind.
Chip Davis formed his own record label, American Gramaphone, and released his first album, Fresh Air, under the moniker of Mannheim Steamroller. Under his record label Davis released three more Fresh Aire albums, labeling them I, II, III and IV respectively. The albums were an exploration of the four seasons (Spring, Fall, Summer and Winter respectively) and featured elements of rock, light jazz and baroque classical music.
Following the first four Fresh Aire releases, Steamroller released four more albums under the series and this time he explored various themes like Greek mythology and infinity.
In 1984, Mannheim Steamroller released his first Christmas album. The album featured a contemporary interpretation of several Yuletide favorites and became an instant hit with fans. Several more albums were released under the Christmas albums series and he became one of the most demanded artists on radio stations during holiday time.
Chip Davis announced that Mannheim Steamroller’s annual Christmas tour will begin in November 2016 and visit major cities all over the US. Davis will direct the performances, while the tour will be co-produced alongside MagicSpace Entertainment.
