Biography: The guitar in the corner of the living room had been mesmerising Chris all his life. At age 11 his hands were big enough to start playing songs by The Beatles, Oasis and The Darkness.
Since moving to Leeds when he was 18, Chris has been active in the music scene playing a variety of instruments in many bands. Producing and recording with collaborators has led to recent projects getting national radio play and festival gigs.
Chris is happy to pass on his knowledge to young musicians teaching them how to play, write and record their own music. Students have gone on to pass grade exams and be accepted to music colleges.
