Chris Brain

Chris Brain emerged from the vibrant folk scene of Leeds in 2022, making a notable debut with their critically acclaimed and widely-distributed album, “Bound to Rise,” which reached #22 on the UK Folk Charts.

Their much-anticipated second album, “Steady Away,” set to release on October 6th, 2023, takes a more self-reflective approach while still retaining hints of soaring melodies and pastoral imagery.

Brain’s distinctive warm vocals and skilful finger-picked guitar style remain a hallmark of their music, now accompanied by expansive string arrangements and delicate piano compositions. This album delves into evolving and introspective themes, exploring concepts of tenderness, loss, pain, and a profound sense of wonder in nature.

“Steady Away” captures the intimacy of Chris’ songwriting, drawing listeners closer to the heart of their music. This album further solidifies Chris Brain’s position within the contemporary folk scene while paying homage to the rich folk tradition. Their dedication to the genre is evident through the two folk clubs and folk festival in Leeds that Chris has established and oversees, attracting a diverse range of audiences and musicians alike.
