“Heartbreaking. Chris T-T can draw the poison and heal the wounds, simply by singing from his heart. It’s evocative, elegant and funny.
How often can you say that these days?” - ARTROCKER
"Like Kerouac, Chris T-T understands what is subversive about love and knows that God is in the detail of everyday life. We should cherish such poets." - PLAN B
Already consistently acclaimed for a decade, in the last few years Chris T-T has developed from insurgent rabble-rousing roots into a significant influence over a generation of UK punk-folk singers. Yet he's never troubled the mainstream and seems comfortable keeping the music business at a polite arm's length. Veering from early albums of psych folk-rock (years before it was de rigeur) to far-left folk- protest, from hard-edged indie rock, to piano-led treacle-black heartbreak, he bewilders and bewitches at every turn.
Chris T-T is married, lives in Brighton and, amongst other things, writes a weekly column on the arts for national left-wing newspaper The Morning Star.
Padraig says "Hello. I was born in South Elmsall, a little mining village in Yorkshire. My stuff has been described as timeless, elegiac & of having a vivid, cinematic feel to it. I just hope they’re well written songs. I like fiddle reels, plate reverbs & North Korean army uniforms. I like the Beat Poets. Bill Callahan. I like William Blake. I like old man’s pubs & I can drink alone or in company. Doesn’t matter. Such potential in sitting still. I like Lee Miller. Noam Chomsky. Dylan too. Still, who doesn’t. Very inspiring."
