Chris Tye is a singer-songwriter who makes beautiful harmonic pop music with roots in a folk and jazz tradition. 

 
He is a sublime guitar player with a complex sense of rhythm, and a talented and ambitious composer and arranger of his music. But perhaps what strikes the listener first is his hugely distinctive voice, expressive and versatile, veering from melancholy to ecstasy, which at times recalls such important musical influences as Nick Drake, John Martyn, Grizzly Bear, The Beatles and Paul Simon. 
 
After early releases Somewhere Down the Line (Headwrecker Records) and Matchbox Stand he is releasing his ambitious debut album The Paper Grenade in November 2014: urban folk music on a huge canvas, intimate, anthemic and built for the big stage. 
 
Chris is well-known on the Birmingham’s revitalised music scene, where he collaborates with diverse artists including Sam Redmore and Michael Clarke, and he has played to full venues across the country as a headline act as well as supported artists including Amy Winehouse, Fionn Regan and Ben Howard
