His single Pandora, released earlier this year was recorded at the legendary Blueprint Studios, with a stunning music video, starring Maxine Peake in the role of 'Pandora'. As well as writing new solo material, Chris is involved in a number of collaborations with a variety of artists, including Julianne Regan. The accomplished singer songwriter previewed his new album with guest musicians in 2014; following sell out gigs and acclaimed performances in 2013/14. Most recently his Manchester Lowry Theatre gig sold out and received critical acclaim.
