Chris Ray King is a singer-songwriter and guitarist from Scotland. His songs typically feature layered, fingerpicked guitars, and his thoughtful lyrics talk about a wide range of themes, including love, loss, and growing older.
He is currently working with his new studio band to record his first album to 16-track tape in an all-analogue environment in Anvil Recording Studio in Edinburgh. His influences are wide and include folk, jazz, punk, progressive rock, country and electronica.
If pushed, he would name the Velvet Underground as his favourite band.
He lives in Edinburgh with his family and a big, silly cat. With the exception of the cat, they are a great source of inspiration and encouragement for his music.
