Chris Cleverley

From the fairy-light intimacy of concert venues, to the stages of world-renowned festivals, Chris has built a sturdy following in his 7 years touring the new British Folk Scene. Outstanding musicianship and warm delivery combine to underpin the infectious draw of his unique songwriting prowess.

His visceral lyrical style pays homage to the American greats, Elliott Smith, Paul Simon & Sufjan Stevens and his songs reveal the presence of an enduring human spirit within the cosmic loneliness of the 21st Century emotional landscape. Powered by a strong social conscience, his music serves as a vehicle for exploring constructive, meaningful change.

A student of classic John Martyn & Nic Jones records, Chris possesses a blistering guitar fingerstyle. Described as “Impressive” by The Telegraph, his playing has commanded attention across the cardinal points of the UK. His dynamic live performance, revered by audiences and musicians alike, has provoked the full spectrum of emotional responses from pin-drop silence to standing ovations.
