It only seems like yesterday that Chris left his home town of Oberon New South Wales, with the words of his mother ringing in his ears. She said, “Christopher, never give up you’ve just got to do whatever it takes.” Inspired by these words of encouragement, Chris wrote and recorded what has now become his signature song “Whatever It Takes”, and so began his many times difficult but always rewarding journey of following the music.
In the beginning he was at heart a country boy writing and singing folk and country songs, but when introduced to the music of Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash, and later the sound of Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton and Brandi Carlisle, their influences filtered through into what has become Chris’s own brand of country blues.
Fast forward twenty five years of constant touring and performing, Chris now proudly presents CC’s Got The Blues. This show is filled with two hours of highly entertaining songs and stories which document his transition from Country to Country Blues.
Exciting news for October 2024, Chris has been listed to perform on an 8 day Royal Caribbean Country Cruise. Further details to be announced soon.
