UK Artist of the Week: Chris Short

You’d better have some tissues handy, because this week’s Artist of The Week is bound to to get those tear ducts working! Irish newcomer Chris Short recently shared his stunning new single “Higher” and it’s the perfect winter warmer to get those emotions flowing.

“Higher” is instantly reminiscent of the likes of Foy Vance or Newton Faulkner as he combines elements of folk and pop to create a sound that is powerfully poignant. The charming lyrics compliment Chris’ distinctively gritty vocal tone, allowing the intricate guitar twangs and lo-fi electronics to hum supportingly in the background.

“Higher” was written about Chris’ wife of ten years and his ongoing love for her. “Higher” is the first single to be taken from Chris’ forthcoming EP, “Somewhere,” due for release in May 2021.

“Higher” is in stores now via Beardfire Music.
