I’ve been gigging with the band Left Hand Drive since 1996 (longer than the Beatles – but not quite as prolific). I'm still very much engaged to Left Hand Drive, after that long together we are simply best friends/brothers. In 2017 I decided to start being a solo act too.

Leftychris is a mainly original act, all about my songs and getting them heard. It’s an opportunity to play them in the hope that anyone listening is open enough to hear them and in some cases, feel them. Stripped down to one guitar and one voice performing as a singer songwriter there’s nowhere to hide but behind the song – so that’s where I’m hiding, come find me.
