As a multi-instrumentalist and master of the loop-pedal, Chris plays piano, drums, cello, Spanish guitar, accordion, vibraphone and other assorted instruments to create a veritable whirlwind of sound.
A prominent Bristol-based musician, he has toured extensively and played with a diverse range of musicians and bands including Movietone (Domino Records), Soe’za (Gringo Records), Matt Elliott (Ici D’ailleurs) and Third Eye Foundation (Domino Records). As a composer, he has also scored for an award winning short film, commissioned documentaries for Channel 4 and the BBC, and commercials.
With a new album forthcoming on French independent label Ici D;ailleurs (Matt Elliott, Yann Tiersen), Chris also tours and releases solo music under the moniker of Manyfingers. His last album ‘Our Worn Shadow’ (Acuarela Discos), was described by www.noripcord.com as “…a dark closer from a complex and enigmatic musician… one of the outstanding albums of 2006”, while Pitchfork compared his work to “…Vivaldi’s lilt, Ligeti’s playful melodrama, and Portishead’s dynamic ambience”, his music existing at the border between post-rock, folk, electronica, film and neo-classical.
