Chris’ trademark solo live sound is at times likened to the magnitude of a full orchestra only to moments later pull audiences to the very edge of their seats to soak in the delicate spider-like touch of his fingerstyle guitar playing.
From touring the UK festivals to sharing the bill with such heavyweights as Spiers & Boden, Martha Tilston and Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman, Chris has built up a formidable reputation and an enthusiastic reception for his debut album ‘Apparitions’.
I’ll be headlining the opening night of a fantastic new Birmingham event the ‘Nights At The Circus Folk Club’.
I’ll be performing with my live band and the evening will open with very special guests, and my bandmates from The Company Of Players, the Hertfordshire based threepiece Said The Maiden.

I’ll be looking forward to catching you at one of these dates over the coming weeks, or perhaps with my new Folk Supergroup project, The Company of Players

And in the meantime have a peek at the first official single, The Dawn Before The Day, released on Youtube:
The album, entitled Apparitions, will be released on Friday 30th October 2015 and will be available for online purchase shortly.
Keep an eye out in the live dates section for the Autumn album release tour dates – perhaps I’ll see you along the way.
In the meantime here’s a glimpse of the album cover, with beautiful artwork designed by the most spectacular of Birmingham based artists, Laura Tinald.
2014 has been an astonishing year, and I’m happy to announce I’ll be rounding it off with one final full band show.
Come join us on Monday 1st December at The Crescent Theatre in Birmingham City Centre.
As well as a host of new arrangements and an even bigger band, I’m massively excited to have the outstanding Manchester based singer Little Sparrow opening the evening. Cannot wait!
