Chris started studying music on leaving school at 16 and has a National Diploma in Music Technology, an HND in Music Production and Performance, a Degree in Popular and Contemporary Music and a Masters Degree in
Studio Production. During this time Chris worked at The Garage Music Centre in Newcastle as a sound engineer in the recording studio, whilst
also maintaining the equipment to help run the studio and practice rooms.
After completing his Masters, Chris played bass guitar in a band and signed a recording deal with a UK label. During this time the band toured extensively playing UK and European festivals such as Glastonbury, Isle ofWhite and Ibiza Rocks, before culminating in playing Fuji Rock Festival in Japan. They also had the privilege of being support for various bands including Oasis and Primal Scream, released an album in 2010, and had their music used extensively on film and TV, most notably on Sky Sports Monday Night Football.
Whilst on the road with the band, Chris forged a sound reputation with many musical contacts. This allowed him the opportunity to begin the next stage of his career in 2011, as a guitar and drum technician looking after touring musicians. In this role, he has worked all over the world at events
and shows including the Brit Awards, The Grammy’s, MTV European Music Awards and Later with Jools Holland. He has also looked after musicians performing large arena tour shows, and global festivals such as Coachella, Glastonbury Pyramid Stage, Austin City Limits, and SXSW.
At Inspired Support, Chris delivers drum and guitar tuition, runs guitar maintenance and repair workshops and is also involved in fitness and coaching with the Inspired football team. Aside from music, his other interests include horticulture, running, astronomy, food and travel.
