Chris Townsend - Copenhagen

Chris Townsend


Folly Records Ltd

Released: 2nd June 2008 | 10 track singer-songwriter album
Debut album release from 23 year old singer/songwriter Chris Townsend. The album is a 10-track collection blending rhythmic guitars, catchy melodies, heartfelt lyrics and driving pianos revealing a mature, diverse and extremely promising young singer/songwriter, who has already been ear-marked as one of the brightest new talents in 2008. Since early 2006 when he supported The Feeling Chris has played over 100 shows all over the UK culminating in a 3 night sold-out gig at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2007. The 23-year-old has also played a number of concerts in Copenhagen, Denmark during a six-month stay there between August 2006 and January 2007 and plans to return later this year to promote the new single and album. '…perfect faultless pop music. A Catchy song recorded & mixed to the best quality. Perfect for national radio play..' (Bristol Rocks) '…cuts through the trivialities of life, right down to the raw emotion which can be both painful and euphoric...' (Student Pages) Townsend's songs explore the classic themes of love, life, loss and regret but these now have an added originality with the use of effects pedals, creating drumbeats, bass and lead lines and vocal harmonies live onstage around his acoustic guitar and vocals. This creates an ethereal and dramatic sound; similar to that of bands such as Crowded House, The Verve and Coldplay with further comparisons being drawn from the likes of US artists Gavin Degraw, John Mayer, Howie Day and The Dave Matthews Band. The future looks very bright for this young artist as he prepares to release his debut album.
