Biography

London, United Kingdom (1999 – present)

Chris T-T is a singer-songwriter with a unique gift of capturing the subtleties of British life. Not one to keep his opinions to himself, this articulation often results in audience members being offended, outraged or otherwise aghast. He’s received earfuls from angry old ladies in hunting villages, indie crowds in Essex and a few outraged liberals at the Leftfield stage during Glastonbury Festival. He must be doing something right.

After spending three years at Leeds University earning a degree in pop music, the inevitable move to London followed. He spent 1999 slogging at a day job, and recorded his first album during evenings and weekends on the cobbled-together not-exactly-state-of-the-art recording equipment in his bedroom. The result was Beatverse, released in 1999 on his own label, Wine Cellar. It sold fewer than 500 copies, but it taught him not be afraid of being opinionated and brutally honest in his songs.

Snowstorm Records loved the album and offered to fund the next T-T release. The result was 2000’s Panic Attack at Sainsbury’s, a mixed bag of pop anthems (You Can Be Flirty), anti-establishment sing-alongs (Dreaming of Injured Popstars) and twisted love songs (Open Books, Exeat).

Over the next few years, T-T became intimate with every venue on the UK indie circuit, driving beat-up vans and sleeping on floors while getting paid next-to-nothing to perform to an ever-increasing base of dedicated fans.

    The a cappella you did when I saw you a while ago supporting Frank Turner was truly amazing. It was the best of the night by anyone. Hopefully see you soon sir.

    Did he use to play piano in Frank Turner's old live band? I saw him last night supporting him and he looked alot like Frank's old piano player.

    Just got the 500 Miles EP from a charity shop today, it's all good except the title track... it's just not a very good cover, and it's a pretty boring song to cover in the first place! However I also have another EP and album somewhere, and I've been prompted to give them a spin.
