Chris Rose is a mid-north coast born singer songwriter and guitarist with a distinctive voice and a gift for storytelling.
At 24 years old he’s not a stranger to hard work and perseverance, since leaving the secluded surf breaks of his home town Port Macquarie as a teen and moving to the bright lights of Sydney, Chris has since shared the stage with some of Australia’s most iconic artists including, Icehouse, Richard Clapton, Thirsty Merc and the Jezabels, enjoying slots at summer festivals including, Festival Of The Sun, Marrickville Fest, and upcoming Wildwood Fest.

After four years signed with Sony Music developing his songwriting, working with some of the most in demand producers from around the world, releasing a debut single, touring nationally, endless gig hopping in the City’s gritty bars and pubs. Chris is certainly carving a path.
This year he is really excited about the decision to go independent, and has planted his feet firmly on the ground with a new, raw and acoustic driven sound!
