CHRIS ROBINSON KING – SHE’S GOT NINE LIVES
Cambridgeshire’s Chris King Robinson’s musical career may have started at age 9 when he got hold of his first Fender Stratocaster, but his love of the blues began at a much earlier age, growing up listening to guitar legends such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix & Buddy Guy. Fast forward to 2011 when after 1000’s of hours spent learning his craft and dozens of clips uploaded to YouTube, Chris was awarded the accolade of being one of the top undiscovered guitarists worldwide by the acclaimed international music photographer Robert Knight who in partnership with guitar manufacturer Fender was searching the globe to find the next great guitarist. In 2013, Chris’ online popularity began to soar gaining millions of hits on YouTube he quickly established himself as Twitter’s most followed blues guitarist worldwide. All this interest encouraged Chris to self- produce and release his first single Lipstick On Her Cigar. In 2014, huge public demand for live performances led Chris to form his own 4-piece group The Chris King Robinson Band which quickly gained recognition as one of the most exciting live bands in the country. This mini album features four live tracks broadcast by ICRFM in Ipswich in August last year.
