Chris has always sung, since the days of being driven to the beach on a stinking hot day with no air conditioning, in the back of the Holden station wagon with his brothers and sisters. They’d harmonise to whatever song was on the radio at the time.
It never entered his mind that you could do it for a living! It never seemed possibility growing up in Perth, Western Australia so he thought it was best to put those dreams behind me and get a real job. Chris had a great career – he owned my own firm selling real estate for 20 years and raised a family…4 of the best kids!
As he worked, though, Chris found himself needing something more fulfilling. He’d always aspired to more than ‘work’. He would find himself sitting in the car on his lunch breaks, singing to my steering wheel. It was then he realised that the shower curtain and the steering wheel – well they might be a great audience, but he was longing to sing to people! So, Chris sang at markets and busked in Fremantle. And people began requesting him for their private functions!
He wanted to see if he could make a new life doing what he loves. And he’s truly learned that it’s never too late.
So Chris has put together an act!
And called it, Beatles to Buble…And Before. These are the songs that he truly loves – the classics from the 50’s, 60’s and beyond.
