Chris started his singing career in 1997 performing as a timid backing vocalist for a local originals band. During a gig for this band Chris was approached by a student of SSPS who recommended he visit the school to help progress his voice. Despite this advice, it took Chris a little while to pluck up the courage to make contact, but shortly after his first singing lesson he was successfully inducted into the school's performance group En Masse in 1998. Chris spent a further 8 years in the group and was one of the few people in En Masse to be awarded the coveted Roy Moore Achievement Award for his experience and skill development during that time.
He has also enjoyed (and is still enjoying) a highly successful career as a performer in Soul duo 'Richmond Soul' and retro harmony combo '4Gone', and has had the pleasure of supporting acts such as Lemar, Alexander O'Neal, The Drifters and Peter Andre. In addition to being a competent and experienced live vocalist, Chris has been involved with songwriting and production for some years, and has written and recorded tracks for various RnB/Pop studio projects and aspiring artists as well as for his own repertoire.
Chris began studying Speech Level Singing over 2 years ago and is currently a Pre-Certified SLS teacher. Having used his speech level singing skills to perfect his performance and protect his voice in his hectic gigging career, he is now keen to help others, whether their goals are to use their voice in the professional environment or if their ambitions are far more simple.
His boundless enthusiasm and infectious personality compliment his passion for SLS to produce a teacher who is sure to deliver a lesson as enjoyable as it is educational.
