The tale of the unexpected rising star from Clitheroe began in 2006, where 15 year old Chris Scott unassumingly and drunkenly got up and performed karaoke at a routine birthday party. In amongst the party goers was schoolmate Jamie Turner. In a moment of forethought, with a budding Simon Cowell persona coming into the conscious, a brief thought crossed his mind: “Wow ¬≠Scotty can sing”.

Fast Forward almost three years and after the break¬≠up of his band, in a hunch, Jamie phoned Chris and asked if he wanted to give singing a shot. Chris entered the public domain for the first time when he released his first batch of recordings in December 2009. The small handful of swing covers were recorded at St Mary’s College in Blackburn with a makeshift band that still forms the core of the band today.

Well known to locals across the breadth of the Ribble Valley & Hyndburn, Chris’s infamous public night¬≠time antics have occasionally caused shock, amazement and wonder in equal measure; a person with an innate ability to entertain crowds of nightclub goers. His ‘charming rogue’ persona has a habit of getting him out of sticky situations ¬≠Chris had a knack of dodging expulsion from his school on several occasions, and now employs the same tactic when avoiding getting chucked out of local watering holes after ten pints too many.

Chris’s laddish character has also earned him droves of fans as he works his way round the Merseyside club circuits, quickly rising up the billing as he performs his original material to the dingy sweaty clubhouses filled to the rafters with punters. One of the lads but popular with ladies of all ages, Chris has a rough northern charm akin with Robbie Williams, but combine it with the soul & style of other contemporary singers such as Bruno Mars and Plan B, you’ll be getting close to his on¬≠stage persona. That’s not to mention his voice, which can best be described as powerful & poised in equal measure. Versatile ¬≠ capable of anything from rock to swing. Sinatra on steroids or Buble with an ASBO.

His band are an asset worth mentioning too. A range of influences, styles and personalities, Chris has some of the most promising young musicians from the area flanking him on stage. Almost entirely consisting of ex¬≠ St Augustine’s (Billington) and St Mary’s College (Blackburn) students, five members of his band have gone on to study at some of the nations leading music establishments including Paul McCartney’s LIPA and RWCMD. They may have members scattered around the place but their collective heart remains in Lancashire. The band vibe is akin to a Sunday league football team ¬≠a bunch of sweaty lads, shouting, laughing, insulting each other and always having a great time simply by being in their element and performing music they share a passion for.

An advocate of the ‘big show, big sound’ method of going about his business, Chris is now looking to a bright future with a new single and video in the pipeline.
