Biography

CHRIS PICKERING is an exceptionally talented singer, musician and songwriter, who writes remarkable songs with beautiful melodies, smart hooks and thoughtful lyrics.

CP fearlessly tackles all manner of styles and arrangements, introducing flavours of pop, rock, country, bluegrass, folk, blues and psychedelia in his music.

Bridging the gap between indie-pop and alt-country, he’s close to truly claiming a style all his own. His latest album, Work Of Fiction, his third long player, was released in October 2010 and is already garnering strong critical acclaim:

“Well written, superbly executed timeless pop? Absolutely!”
– Rhythms Magazine

“From start to finish this is a polished and graceful outing from Pickering, with roots that go down deep into country and soul music.” – Courier Mail

The song and second single from the album, ‘Fisherman’s Daughter,’ has already received strong airplay and the clip has been added to rotation on the Country Music Channel.

Since releasing his debut EP Hard To Find in 2004 and the follow-up album A Safer Place, he’s been winning over audiences throughout Australia and the United States with his distinctive sound that combines soaring melodies with lyrics that paint vivid pictures of life in - and out - of the country.

In 2006, CP released his next EP, Ghost City. Produced by ARIA Award-winning legend, Magoo, Ghost City earned CP a swag of rave reviews. The accolades continued in 2006 when he won his first Q Song Songwriting Award for ‘Better Off’ (from A Safer Place LP).
