Despite his relative youth, singer-songwriter Chris Pickering is no youngster on the Australian music scene. Since releasing his debut EP Hard To Find in 2005 and the follow-up album A Safer Place, he's been seducing audiences throughout the country with his distinctive acoustic sound that combines soaring melodies with lyrics that paint vivid pictures of life in - and out - of the country. In 2006, Chris released his next EP, Ghost City. Produced by Australian Record Industry Award-winning legend, Magoo, Ghost City earned Chris a swag of rave reviews. The accolades continued in 2006 when he won his first Qmusic songwriting award for 'Better Off' (from A Safer Place LP). And if there was any doubt, Chris' reputation as a musician on the rise was cemented in August 2007, when he secured his second Qmusic award for 'The Humming Song'. 'The Humming Song' is featured on his new album, Excuses Excuses - also produced by Magoo - released February 2008. Chris spent much of 2006-2007 performing to a loyal - and growing - following throughout Queensland, Victoria, New South Wales, Tasmania and Germany. Although he plays with a 4-piece band (including pedal steel guitar), it's his solo performances that offer a truly intimate musical experience.
