Chris Tavener is the witty, satirical songwriter saying things that everybody thinks, but nobody says.
He’s like Bob Dylan meets Tim Minchin; Paul Simon meets Monty Python…
Chris performs hundreds of gigs a year, making him one of the most hard-working singer-songwriters in the UK. He’s had praise from Carl Barat of The Libertines, Jamie Lawson and Steve Lamacq of BBC 6 Music. As a performer, he has shared the stage with Super Hans (Channel 4), Mark Radcliffe (BBC Radio 2), Peter Hook of Joy Division and Tony Hadley of Spandau Ballet.


Originally from Northwich in Cheshire, Chris began writing and producing demo albums annually from age 17. He writes sarcastic, storytelling songs about the irony in everything from drunken romance in nightclubs to climate change and mental health.
Chris has performed at Glastonbury Festival, The Great Escape, Latitude Festival and The Edinburgh Fringe. In 2018, he embarked on an 18-date European tour through France, Germany and The Netherlands which was soon followed by a UK joint tour with folk legend Gavin Osborn. Following the tour, he appeared at the famous Lowry Theatre for BBC Radio ...

I want to thank you for playing at my recent birthday party. You certainly made the night special. The music was just right and everyone said how good you were. I didn't realise what talent you had until I read the article in the local paper. I hope your career goes from strength to strength and good luck for the future.

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you again how much I enjoyed your set last night. I loved your material - the wit, and the surprise, in the lyrics - paired with excellent music. And you are one HELL of a performer! I got home last night and immediately went to your website, and watched a few of your videos. Much more so than most, you have a strong, cohesive vision for who you are and what you do and how it all works together, and that shows very clearly - those videos are outstanding. I am going to do my best to get to your gig in Manchester at the end of next month. I would very much like to see a full, proper gig of yours. I have a feeling it will be one I will remember for a long time. It is always a wonderful thing when you find a musician new to you that excites you - I am very, very happy I got to see you last night. I look forward to seeing you many more times in the future.
