Chris graduated from Middlesex University in 2004 2ith a 1st Class Honours in Jazz Studies. Along with Pete Grogan, he is a member of the wacky improv band Led Bib. After winning the "Pete Whittingham Award" in 2005, the band has gone on to release their second and third albums (Sizewell Tea and Led Bib Live) on Babel, appeared in the London Jazz Festival 2006 and 2007. They have also played in the Queen Elizabeth Hall and have been featured on BBC Radio 3's programme Jazz on 3. Chris is kept busy by playing in a number of other bands of all kinds, with styles ranging from the Disco dance-beat madness of Chik Budo to the Dub bass-improv-fuelled, lyrical music of New Telepathics. With these bands, Chris plays regularly throughout London and increasingly up and down the country, with performances abroad taking him to Ireland, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Austria and Portuga with a tour of New Zealand with New Telepathics planned for early 2008
