2017 saw Chris record his 3rd slide guitar video package for Jam Track Central. It also saw him writing a regular slide column for Acoustic magazine and interviewing the dobro legend Jerry Douglas.
Chris is regarded as one of the UK’s finest slide guitarists. In the late ‘90s his band, CBN, were signed to The Sticky Label and toured the European blues scene, performing at festivals and opening shows for the likes of The Yardbirds, The Hoax and Nine Below Zero. This work lead to other projects, such as playing at London’s Brixton Academy supporting rock star Bryan Adams.
Chris’ adaptability as a session guitarist and specialist slide guitar skills impressed singer/songwriter Ian Parker, who hired him. Then came European tours, recording sessions with members of Radiohead and Robert Plant’s band and support slots for Seasick Steve, Peter Green and Buddy Guy.
He has taught at many leading guitar schools, including The ACM, Guitar Cities London, The International Guitar Foundation and BIMM.
Chris is an endorsee of Danelectro guitars, Gold Tone resonators, Eastwood lap steels and Diamond Bottleneck slides. He lives in Storrington, West Sussex.
