Biography

Chris Read is a singer, performer and songwriter and has been writing and performing since 12 years of age, having worked with many major companies and music industry power houses such as: EMI, Sony ATV, Nigel Martin-Smith (Take That and Robbie Williams), Hyperactive Management (World’s Apart, Liberty X, Brother Beyond), Steve Crosby (Steps, Scooch, Partizio Buane).

Gaining some powerful experience of being a part of several great projects, bands or pop groups going back over a decade, this Manchester born Aussie is now taking on a solo career, after a bit of a break since departing from his latest group; Sydney based Rock band ‘Ultimo’ in 2007. Together Ultimo recorded the album ‘Opposite Ends of The Earth”, had regular airplay on mainstream radio across the country, live appearances on MTV, Rove and Video Hits as well as support tours for Nickelback, INXS and Screaming Jets.

A Little Older is the name of the solo album and is a collection of pop songs with a nostalgic injection of the Rock ‘n’ Roll era. The theme for this album and tour is to take the best parts of the past and merge it into today's beautiful world. The journey this musical story takes us on combines new technology with vintage melodies.
