Singer songwriter Chris Rose is a purveyor of coastal, country, indie pop. This Sunday afternoon he shares his talent with punters at the Pacific Hotel in Yamba.
Growing up in Port Macquarie, his connection with the region’s secluded surf breaks, coastal campfires and country vibes, have coloured and shaped his song writing.
After being ‘discovered’ by Andrew Bee of the Talent Development Project, during a performance at the town’s Glasshouse Theatre, he packed up and moved to Sydney, where he was subsequently signed to a Sony Music development deal.
October saw the release of We’re here to Party, from his forthcoming EP, Nowhere Land, which is set for release in early 2017.
Rose likens the sound of his EP to that of Paolo Nutini, Jason Mraz and Tom Petty, to name a few.
“I want people to know that I am a real artist; I sing, I write, I play guitar, and I perform live,” he declares. “And that I will continue to tell my stories through song.”
