'Labrador' is a solo acoustic singer/guitarist based in the Peak District, south east of Manchester. Chris actually did his masters degree in design engineering and only first picked up a guitar just has he finished university in 2007. Just one year later, with guitar in hand, he made his stage debut and music has been his number one passion ever since. Since then his performing experience and abilities have grown extensively having worked a wide variety of events from pubs, bars, restaurants and weddings through to corporate events and trade shows.
Chris also has a love of song writing and is currently in the process of writing/recording a demo album of all original material. Chris's favourite musical influences sited vary from the Nordic folk sounds of Jose Gonzalez & The Tallest Man On Earth through to James Blunt to create a folk/pop sound. Central to his ethos is the importance of good lyrics and the intimate, heartfelt delivery of them; skills and originality which he always endeavours to transfer through to his work as a cover artist to give you a night to remember!

I knew of Chris's musical ability after seeing him perform in a social capacity previously. I then approached him on behalf of one of my clients, Molson Coors Brewing Company, to see if he was open to the idea of performing at an internal corporate event at the NEC on behalf of the brand experience agency I work for, TRO. Chris was fully briefed and provided an excellent service over a 2-day period, resulting in positive feedback from both the client, attendees and myself. In light of this positive feedback, I subsequently booked Chris for a further brand experience event for a different client. I would have no hesitation in recommending Chris for any other future performances.

Chris performed for us at our wedding. He was there for the full day, as I wanted him to sing as I walked down the aisle. Having him singing my favourite song as I walked down the aisle was amazing and just made that moment all the more perfect.
Chris then performed in the evening too. We gave him a set list of songs that we liked and he performed them perfectly. It was perfect. He is so professional, very personable and really easy to get along with, very accommodating and very reliable. The feedback from all my guest was fantastic. They loved him, and even now, when I talk about my wedding, he is a part that is always mentioned. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. Five stars
