Hull Music Scene: Chris Welburn

MUsic Chris Welburn

Introduced himself to us thus: “I’m a solo songwriter, guitarist, singer and occasional pianist, (in that order), from Hull and I’m about to release a new full length album. The album is called “Mary with a box of matches” and will be officially launched in the last week of June, along with a UK tour to support it. Also I ought to mention that the artwork for the album was done for me by Snapper, the gent who does a lot of the artwork for Welly and Fruit. The first single from the album, ‘Old Town’, has already received BBC Radio 6 Music airplay courtesy of Tom Robinson at BBC Introducing.“

You can find pretty much everything about Chris at www.chriswelburn.com including, live videos, some tracks from the new album, photos, Twitter and Facebook feeds, lyrics and so on. You can also check out a YouTube video he made after a recent gig. Looks like this could be yet another Hull Singer-Songwriter on the verge of something bigger, so check him out as soon as you can.
