Chris T-T & The Hoodrats

Huw Stephens of Radio 1 calls him a genius. Independent writer and music maker Chris T-T has been acclaimed for 15 years, without ever bothering the charts, nor compromising his radical, psychedelic songs.

Active since 1999, Chris has released nine albums and since 2007 has been signed to Xtra Mile Recordings. His latest album “The Bear” was recorded with long-time live lineup The Hoodrats.

Chris has written for publications including the Morning Star, New Public Thinkers, Huffington Post, Dark Mountain, NME, and Louder Than War. Called “a modern-day Blake” by the Sunday Times (who’ve twice placed him in their top 5 albums of the year), Chris is increasingly cited as a key influence on a generation of successful British singers.

In 2010 Chris instigated the #IAmSpartacus civil disobedience Twitter meme and last summer his critique of the Olympics Closing Ceremony brought 65,000 visitors to his website in three days.

More recently, Chris has been artist in residence (Popular Music) at Leeds Met University; delivered a TEDx talk on the generation gap; taken a one-man show of A.A. Milne poems to the Edinburgh Fringe; and spent six months in 2013 as writer in residence at Brighton’s iconic Royal Pavilion & Museums.

Jon Snow of Channel 4 calls him “one of the great underground artists of our time.”
