Welsh singer-songwriter Christopher Rees has released 7 full length albums. He has received widespread critical acclaim from MOJO, Uncut, Q and support from Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2.

In 2017 he released ‘The Nashville Songs’ – an inspired collection of songs co-written in Music City, USA.

A dynamic, soulful and passionate performer Rees employs a wide range of Americana / roots styles from vintage old-time country to upbeat Rockabilly, Appalachian claw-hammer banjo, stripped back acoustic storytelling and foot stomping bottleneck blues.

He has toured with music legends like Steve Earle, Billy Joe Shaver, John Cale, Wanda Jackson and the great Mavis Staples.

“Absolutely terrific”. (Bob Harris – BBC Radio 2)
