He appeared in repertory at The Citizen’s Theatre in Glasgow (his first play there was with one Pierce Brosnan), Nottingham Playhouse and the ICA in London as well as in TV and film. He has written for various magazines and newspapers including The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, the Mail on Sunday and Rolling Stone.


His first records were made during the 1970’s for David Geffen of Asylum in Los Angeles and he toured the USA and the UK. He revitalised his song writing in the late 1980’s after a long break and helped brother Mick out on the Stones acclaimed albums “Dirty Work” and then later “Steel Wheels.” He has written for various magazines and newspapers including The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, the Mail on Sunday and Rolling StoneHis first records were made during the 1970’s for David Geffen of Asylum Records in Los Angeles and he toured the USA and the UK.He revitalised his song writing in the late 1980’s when he worked in France as lyricist for producer Franck Langolf [Vanessa Paradis] and helped brother Mick out on the Stones acclaimed albums “Dirty Work” and then later “Steel Wheels.”Chris decided to then concentrate on his own material and the result was the critically acclaimed Sequel C.D. ‘Atcha!’ in 1994, a mix of Cajun style with Chris’s individual brand of song writing. Acclaimed and respected music critic Tony Parsons in the Telegraph compared his lyrics to those of the famed Sammy Cahn. Contributions came from David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) and Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) on ‘Lhasa Town, Leo Sayer and a touch of brother Mick on ‘Stand Up for The Foot.’ This record was later released in the US by Curb Records as ‘Rock the Zydeco’ where Chris and his band promoted the record on the Conan O’Brien Show for NBC.Additionally he arranged the music for the Bosnian charity concert – “Bop for Bosnia” -at the BBC in Studio One with Dave Stewart and David Gilmour and two subsequent concerts for Tibet in Battersea Park and Alexandria Park in North London.


In London he assisted in raising money for the charity ‘Warchild' with a ‘bop for Bosnia’ at the BBC studios, and organised fundraisers for Tibet, where Sinead O’Connor and David Gilmour appeared alongside HH The Dalai Lama. He made four more subsequent CDs including ‘The Ridge’ a solo effort featuring Danny Thompson on double bass and John Etheridge on guitar.


He wrote and presented a three part series for BBC Radio on Alexis Korner, the pioneering blues musician and broadcaster and   finished a film for SKY ARTS on the blues in Austin Texas with guests including pianist Pine Top Perkins, guitarists Hubert Sumlin and Jimmy Vaughan.

Chris has recently signed his catalogue including publishing to BMG in Berlin and has compiled some of his best recordings in a 15 track CD due out in 2017.
