“CHRIS VELAN ON THE LAWS OF LIVE SHOWS”
RETURN TO ONLINE ISSUES (2011)
Chris Velan finds gigs this week in both Waterloo and Guelph (Starlight and eBar).
“Chris is a fantastic artist with a really interesting history – after passing the bar exam, Chris left the law profession to work on a documentary in Sierra Leone, and in the process “discovered” Sierra Leone’s Refugee All-Stars. That experience taught him that he could combine his two passions, human rights and music.
His new album, Fables For Fighters (Fontana North, 2011) was produced by Iestyn Polson (David Gray) and it’s a terrific singer/songwriter-pop album.Fables For Fighters has had great success at Radio 2 and Chris has spent the summer touring the U.S. in support of the album’s release.”
Check out Chris’ live track and be sure to make your way down to the shows this week.
