Chris is a self-taught guitarist with a unique playing style and sound. Spending his childhood with his family in the Torres Strait Islands, he now resides in Brisbane and travels nationally and internationally with his music, as a proud ambassador for his Culture and Country.
His distinctive guitar-tap style and vibrant personality see him in high-demand with gigs across Australia, the USA and ongoing media appearances and documentary features. In 2016 national TV audiences also watched Chris make his way thru to the grand finals of ‘Australia’s Got Talent’.
Having played some of Australia’s largest festivals he often surprises crowds with sensational on-stage collaborations. He represented proudly at G’day LA, G’day USA and in Hawaii, and returns home to the islands whenever he can.
2015 saw the release of his debut EP Ngaw Laag ‘My Home’ (available now thru iTunes and Impossible Odds Records), and the honour of receiving the National NAIDOC Youth of the Year Award. Dubbed a ‘guitar virtuoso’, this humble young man’s music and vibe is unforgettable.
