Chris Hurn

Bio

Chris Hurn is a folk-pop singer/songwriter from Lower Hutt, and now based in Auckland. After playing in various local bands, including Play it Strange 2007 winners The Lunch Box Boys, a 60's style indie-pop band, he discovered a love for folk music and decided to go solo in late 2009.

Inspired by the likes of Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen, he began to write a collection of songs that would soon become his first album. Although heavily influenced by his folk heroes, he draws upon a wide range of genres and styles of music. As well as having a soft spot for modern pop and rock, Chris has spent a considerable amount of time soaking up 60's pop groups, notably The Mamas and the Papas, The Beatles and the Kinks.

Coming from a multi-instrumental background, Chris commenced his musical endeavours at a young age with the piano and a cheap plastic recorder. His first album is heavily based around the acoustic guitar but whistles, clicks, claps, harmonica and harmonies also play a big part in the sound.

Astonishingly, Chris plays all the instruments on his debut as well as mixing and producing it himself. His lyrics reveal a world-wise maturity far beyond his years and coupled with his knack for writing catchy melodies, he seems sure to secure himself a place amongst New Zealand's fine new generation of singer/songwriters such as Liam Finn, James Milne and Connan Mockasin.

When not playing folk music, Chris works as a composer writing orchestral based scores for video games and films.
