Award winning Songwriter and guitarist Chris Cleverley is renowned for his ability to draw audiences to the edge of their seats with hauntingly delivered tales of ghost women, lonesome clock towers, lovelorn mariners and hospital beds.
Chris has crafted a reputation as a songwriter of singular ability with characteristic original and traditional material that has resonated deeply with audiences up and down the UK. His unique brand of contemporary folk contrasts the calming, pastoral influence of a childhood spent roaming the foothills of the Brecon Beacons and Cornish coastlines, with the anxious frenzy of an urban mind shaped by 29 years in the UK’s bustling second city.
