He’s back… by hugely popular demand… CHRIS HELME returns to Saltburn. This time Chris will be performing with his band over the course of 2 x 45 minute sets.
Chris first rose to prominence in the mid 90’s as front man of John Squire’s post-Stone Roses band ‘The Seahorses,’ and subsequently released his first solo album in 2012. Although rightfully remembered for the anthemic Britpop classics Love Is The Law and Blinded By The Sun – songs that evoked everything the 90’s stood for – from the opening track of The Rookery, he instantly appeared cut from an entirely different cloth.
Helme’s is an enviable back catalogue, bolstered further by his acclaimed works with The Yards, but it was The Rookery’s knack for melody and imaginative, intricate, three-way guitar interplay that brought each track to such lush, blossoming, climaxes. Add to this Helme’s keen ear for arranging, combined with his beguiling voice, and the brooding string passages resonate even more deeply.
Chris returned to the road in 2015 to promote the release of his second solo album, headed by the first single ‘You’re Too Bad.’
“Echoing the fragility of Gram Parsons, while flirting with the rustic side of Neil Young.” UNCUT
“Dreamy but driven indie folk. Enhanced by lavishly layered productions and a deftly deployed string quartet.” Q MAGAZINE
