A modern-day Blake.” THE SUNDAY TIMES Writer and music maker Chris T-T is one of the UK’s most consistently acclaimed underground artists. Active since 1997, Chris has released nine albums, including a trilogy about London: The 253 (2001), London Is Sinking (2003) and Capital (2008), as well as influential political protest record 9 Red Songs (2005) and most recently The Bear (2013). He has written for Dark Mountain, Louder Than War, Huffington Post, NME.com, New Public Thinkers and for four years wrote a weekly column on the arts in The Morning Star. He has spoken at TEDx,Boring Conference, SOAS, Brighton Digital Festival, Interrogate!at Dartington Hall, AIM Music Connect, Leeds University, Great Escape Convention, UC Falmouth and many others. “A national gem of a songwriter.” THE INDEPENDENT Emerging from roots in late 90s lo-fi and psych-folk, Chris first gained acclaim for sarcastic, city-obsessed urban folk. More recently he has developed into an influential figure of UK songwriting; crossing barriers between punk, psych-pop and English folk, inspiring a generation of successful home-grown artists. Chris has played shows around the world with artists such as Ben Folds, Elbow, The National, Divine Comedy, Bellowhead, Walkmen, Frank Turner, Delgados, British Sea Power, Arab Strap, Carter USM, Marcus Brigstocke, Madrugada, Robyn Hitchcock, Stewart Lee, Iain Sinclair and many others. He has played piano for Tom Robinson, Jim Bob (Carter USM) and Frank Turner. In 2010 Chris instigated the #IAmSpartacus global Twitter meme, as an act of civil disobedience in support of Paul Chambers’ Twitter Joke Trial. Chris has also performed on the fourth plinth at Trafalgar Square for Anthony Gormley’s One & Other project; re-soundtracked live cult Japanese film Battle Royale for Soho’s Other Cinema and composed music on commission for the Natural History Museum and the World Health Organisation. In 2011, Chris took his one-man show Disobedience to Edinburgh Fringe Festival, singing new versions of A.A. Milne’s 1920s childrens’ poems. In 2012, his blog entry criticising the Olympics Closing Ceremony, Not Just Shit But Dangerous brought 65,000 readers to this site in two days. Chris T-T’s 9th album The Bear, recorded with his band lineup Hoodrats, was released by Xtra Mile Recordings in October 2013.

Thanks to IOM Arts Council Island of Culture 2014 funding Chris is going to be spending a bit of time here. He'll be going out to schools and to IOM Soundcheck and offering different workshops for those organisations. This workshop on Saturday 25 January 2014 is intended for any band, working in any genre - here's some ideas of what you'll get: How to build a following / using online tools / how not to get ripped off. Your music video = your calling card. Thinking outside the box. How to manage a band, how to choose a manager, managing the band dynamic ... come along and bring your questions. Chris has been touring solidly for the last decade or so, so there will be plenty of meat to put on the bones of these questions and more! Starting at 11am and finishing by 1pm ... Chris T-T is looking forward to having you there. ADMISSION IS FREE OF CHARGE- however we will ask you to sign in and to complete a very simple questionnaire about your participation in the workshop. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Port-St-Mary-Town-Hall/363249277062377
