From the moment Chris first stepped on stage, he has chased the thrill of singing great music in front of a live audience. His Grandmother played him Frank Sinatra (who she affectionately referred to as ‘Frankie!’) for the first time when he was 8 years old, and from then on not a day would go by without Chris singing along to yet another Sinatra standard!

Since beginning to sing professionally in his teens, Chris has sung with Big Bands including a stint with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra and also the Oxford University Jazz Orchestra (twice winners of the BBC Big Band Award!). He has worked throughout the UK and also extensively in Europe.

Chris prides himself on being an utter professional, working with his client before every event to ensure that the evening receives the entertainment it needs to really succeed. Everybody has their favourite songs and Chris always arranges his sets around those songs that you really want to hear in an evening. He is able to set the mood for any event, be it a classy, toe-tapping affair where your guests can chat and catch up or an evening of dancing that they will never forget!

Depending on your venue size and budget, Chris can either work alone with top quality instrumental tracks or with a live band (up to 8 players) made up of the very best professional Jazz musicians (please see booking options).
