CHRIS PICKERING is an exceptionally talented singer, musician and songwriter, who writes remarkble songs with beautiful melodies, smart hooks and thoughtful lyrics. CP fearlessly tackles all manner of styles and arrangements, introducing flavours of pop, rock, country, bluegrass, folk, blues and psychedelia in his music. Bridging the gap between indie-pop and alt-country, he’s close to truly claiming a style all of his own.His latest album, Work Of Fiction, was released in October 2010 and is already garnering strong critical acclaim: "Well written, superbly executed timeless pop? Absolutely!" - Rhythms Magazine "From start to finish this is a polished and graceful outing from Pickering, with roots that go down deep into country and soul music." - Courier Mail.
