Act Profile

Christopher

Chris is a Leeds-based acoustic singer and guitarist who offers fantastic acoustic versions of some of the best popular music from the last 60 years. He grew up during the Brit Pop era listening to artists such as Oasis and Blur. Chris, a south-paw, first picked up a right-handed guitar and began to learn upside down. Encouraged through his fathers love for music, he was introduced from a very early age to artists such as The Beatles, The Kinks, Rolling Stones and many more.

Chris has played guitar and sung in various bands since school. During November 2011 � March 2012 Chris played at various resorts around the French Alps and into to Italy. This has lead to him having a large repertoire of great songs and experience working with all types of audiences. Chris is available to perform solo acoustic for conferences, weddings, parties and other functions playing cover songs or original material. He can also arrange play lists for DJing following his sets.

As well as performing and singing solo on acoustic, Chris is also available as a duo with 'Cajon' percussionist, this carries the sets well with a good tempo.
