Chris Cope’s journey as a songwriter and performer began early.

Coming from a background in drumming, Chris possessed a natural ability and flair, which easily adapted to other instruments, namely the guitar. His talent as a songwriter have been honed and influenced by his involvement in various bands and groups over the years, ranging from Jazz trios, to Big Band, to commercial Rock Bands.

Chris achieved a notable degree of success in New Zealand with his former band ‘eight’, whose debut album ‘Moving’ was released through SonyBMG in 2004. ‘Moving’ achieved Gold sales status, and produced several successful radio singles and music videos, including number 1 Rock-Radio airplay for the single ‘No Way to Decide’. Throughout 2004-2005 the band eight enjoyed strong press coverage, and an extensive nationwide presence, including international support slots for Creed and Incubus, as well as their own successful headline tours. In 2005 Chris decided it was time to go it alone, and began to focus his full attention on developing his own original material, relocating to London in 2006.

Chris’s songs speak for themselves. Combining mature pop sensibility with elements of blues, folk and a classic singer-songwriter vibe. Chris’s music has a broad commercial radio appeal, and yet retains a sense of earthy musicality, which is often lacking in today’s ‘Pop Idol’ environment. Chris’s songs are equally captivating when performed with just an acoustic guitar as they are in a full band arrangement, and Chris excels in both environments. Always delivering a vibrant and emotive performance, Chris’s natural easy-going personality and cheeky character shines through both on and off the stage.
