Chris performs under the stage name 'Chris Vox'. As a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter, Chris has performed original music and unique covers at venues including Bristol's beloved Trinity Centre, The Louisiana, The Fleece and Tobacco Factory.
During lockdown, Chris has continued performing online through solo livestreams and with renowned festival How The Light Gets In.
After lockdown lifted in 2021, Chris opened Valley Fest's Hear Here stage with a set of planned material and entirely improvised songs.
Chris performs collaboratively with other artists. His duo with chart-topping rapper/poet Craft-D has been an exciting development. Together, they have supported rapper/activist Lowkey, headlined Bristol Harbour Fest and wowed the audience at Sofar Sounds London.
Another creative partnership is Dancing Ledge, combining music with the poetry of Beth Calverley. They performed online for festivals during lockdown and have begun rocking real-life stages as well, including Green Man Festival 2021.
As a composer, Chris has scored independent short films, plays, video games, video essays, comedy shorts and animations. He was a finalist for the English Riviera Film Festival (2019) with his score for the animated short film, 'Mute'. He has written for animation, short films, music theme tunes, promotional videos, national campaigns and private clients.

'Chris composed a bespoke piece of music for my promo video. Empathy and connection are at the core of my business ethos, so stock music options didn't convey the right depth of emotion. I didn't want it to just sound like every other promo video out there! What Chris created was perfect. He even recorded the sound of my typewriter and wove it into the track for maximum authenticity. Clients and collaborators have told me how much they loved the video - and specifically mentioned the music. And to top it all off, Chris is a joy to work with - he listens closely to what you need and turns a project round in no time. Highly recommended!' – Beth Calverley, The Poetry Machine.
