I’m very pleased to announce I have a new song coming out on June 28th and its...
After a show one evening Ben (my incredible cellist) and I were chatting and I mentioned I wanted to do a new cover. We usually do Kids (by MGMT) but we have been playing it for years and I wanted to freshen things up.
I began looking at new releases and thinking "this would be cool... that would be a sweet cover" etc when all of a sudden I thought NOOOOOOO! I should do a song that would be VERY DIFFICULT to cover. Something that would raise eyebrows. I wanted to be brave and not choose the easy option. I wanted to make you all totally reimagine the song...
A few songs were on my list, but Wonderwall stood out as the biggest challenge - So I worked out a new version and showed it to Ben. He sprinkled his genius on it and we started chucking it in the show and the reaction was so good that I decided to record it. The recording has turned out so well I decided we should put it out.
It's out on Smithereen Records on June 28th and you can pre order/pre save it on June 23rd.
I'm really proud of this track and I can’t wait to hear all of your reactions!

Hi all - just a quick update, the first of 2 big announcements this week - I am so pleased to say I will be opening for Gaz Coombes for his 4 shows in January! I am HUGE Fan of Gaz and love everything from Supergrass to his absolutely stunning solo work.
I can't quite believe I will share a stage with him! Tickets on sale Friday here.
Hey all. Wanted to share this idea for Saturdays gig with you.
I am going to set up two 'Gold Dust Boxes' at the venue all day tomorrow (Saturday 3rd) and ask that everyone who comes to the show brings something along to help the more vulnerable in our society.
In box one I am collecting for a local food bank, so any non perishable food that you can bring will go to help feed a struggling Worthing family.
In box two I am collecting winter clothes for Worthing’s Homeless, so any jumpers, socks, jackets etc. can be left there.
The boxes will be in the venue from 1pm so you can drop your bits off rather than carry them about for Pre drinks etc.
I am working with the lovely people at Turning Tides to make sure this all gets to where it's needed most. Let's all try and make a difference to some local folk tomorrow and please share far and wide. Chris x

The shows were great, the company was great and the crowds were great. Mike left me totally speechless when he handed me his guitar on the last show AS A GIFT. A stunning J45. Just blown away.
