The Boy Will Learn - summer 2012



"A truly great songwriter with an incredibly distictive voice"


Chris began his career with a pocket full of pennies and a one-way ticket to Australia. He busked his way around the globe, performing on National T.V and Radio, in New Zealand, Australia and Europe.

He returned to the UK a year later with 36 Songs and £35.

Since then he has toured the USA 3 times playing with the likes of Jackson Browne, Jane Weidlin and The Violent Femmes, signed to Mulberry Music Publishing and is completing work on his debut record with Luke Buttery (Jamie Woon, Noel Gallagher, Scott Matthews) which features co-writes with songwriting hero and double Ivor Novello award winning Squeeze legend Chris Difford.

In Europe has racked up support shows with the likes of Seth Lakeman, The Von Bondies, The Kooks, Squeeze, The Departure, Suede, The Maccabees, Finlay Quaye, Ocean Colour Scene, Seth Lakeman, Beth Orton and many more..
