Bio

Kicking off his career with the debut album ‘Back Down’, Chris Watts offers a set of irresistible folk/indie-pop tunes underpinned by catchy riffs that stay with you. The songs on his debut album ‘Back Down’ have drawn favourable comparisons to Jake Bugg and First Aid Kit. One part power pop, one part melodic folk, they are full of infectious chords, robust rhythms and soaring vocals.

Chris’s career highlights include performing at the Queenscliff and St Kilda Festivals, being selected to be a part of MTV Brand New (alumni includes the likes of Tkay Maidza, Cosmo’s Midnight and Carmada), supporting the likes of Sydney duo Georgia Fair, playing in iconic venues such as The Metro Theatre and on ground at Etihad Stadium, and having his debut single ‘Back Down’ played on triple j.

Chris recently stepped into the studio with Steve Schram (San Cisco, Little Red) to record his new single ‘Let Go’

Definitely getting those San Cisco/Andy Bull vibes. Very fun, would bop to this one.
