  • Have been listening to Chris we may be supporting him in Brisbane on his next show soon Great music and worth the listen and live show experience...
  • This man is a must see live act, and his albums are some of the warmest and well put together masterpieces I have ever heard. Happier Blue is my pick, licking my lips :-)
  • Saw him in a small venue in south wales, bought some cd's and had an opportunity to talk to him as we waited for our cars. A great guy, and an excellent artist to see live......more people should find out about him

  • Just saw him tonight in London ... really enjoyed the show and can echo that he seems a really genuine guy.
  • Great song writer and great guy!
  • Incredible!! I first heard his cover of Visions of Johanna, and am hooked! Winsome smile is another favorite!
  • I love this guy. Except his songs - I suppose he is the only one who is able to remake Bob Dylan´s songs.
