Bio

In an industry full of gimmicks and quick tricks, stands Australian singer-songwriter Chris George Bancroft. Focussed on the sonic story-telling of various moments throughout his life, Chris weaves songs straight from the heart.

Filled with a deep passion for music, Chris honours each element of production and musicianship, continually developing his techniques and learning from his experiences in past bands - Blue Chorus, Asha Jefferies and The Holy Rollercoasters. Inspired by iconic artists who have the ability to instill a long-lasting connection Chris George Bancroft aims to create music that captures the minds and souls of all those who listen.

Following a year of writing and recording, in addition to the release of Don’t Want To Die, an indie-pop / rock single reflecting the dichotomy of life and death, and our thoughts, feelings and actions in between. The most recent single in the catalogue, Don’t Want To Die received acclaim from audiences and industry alike, garnering over 26k Spotify streams, his first play on Triple J Home and Hosed and an addition to Triple J Unearthed rotation.

2021 promises even more with Chris George Bancroft set to release two singles and a forthcoming EP to signpost a collection of new music in the years to come.

Breathed an audible "damn he's good" to myself during that gleaming guitar intro. Kudos CGB! Love where you take the rest of the track from there - you've got an eye for detail and it shows in everything you do.

"without a little dark, what good is the light?" is a great line from CGB. And that's good, because this is also happens to be a great track from him.
