Chris Helme

“Echoing the fragility of Gram Parsons, while flirting with the rustic side of Neil Young” Uncut

Chris first rose to prominence as the front man of John Squire’s post-Stone Roses band ‘The Seahorses’ which saw him touring extensively and sharing the stage with The Rolling Stones, U2 and Oasis in numerous support slots.  Now solo- he is still rightfully remembered for Britpop classics Love Is The Law and Blinded By The Sun – songs that evoked everything the 90’s stood for, the excitement, the culture and the bands that provided a voice in a period of political and social imbalance.

Chris’ enviable back catalogue, bolstered further by his acclaimed works with The Yards, but it’s his last album,  The Rookery’s which has a knack for melody and imaginative, intricate, three-way guitar interplay that brings each track to such lush, blossoming, climaxes. Add to this Chris’ keen ear for arranging and those brooding string passages which resonate even more deeply.  Melodies rooted in traditional folk are reimagined on an album of rich variation, testament to his most powerful weapon – his voice.
