Since the early 1990s, Chris has collaborated on various band projects with partner Shedea (keys) as well as touring and recording with singer, harp-player and songwriter Dorothy-Jane ‘DJ’ Gosper from 2007 to 2010. Since 2011 Chris has concentrated on acoustic duo gigs, playing original material and ‘60s covers with Shedea.

He has played mainly original blues/rock since forming his own band in 1997. His partner, Caroline McNicholas (flute, vocals, keys, guitar) is a singer-songwriter from Ireland who toured widely with Urban Trad band Suas, before she and Johnny formed Celtic ambient rock band Night Potion in 2010.
