The Stables Sessions: Chris Cleverley

Free event
  • This event has now passed

Dream-folk songwriter Chris Cleverley is among a new wave of pioneering artists carving an uncharted path through the UK acoustic landscape. Endorsements from The Times, The Telegraph and BBC 6 Music have fuelled his rising trajectory, leading to receipt of FATEA Magazine's 'Male Artist of the Year' Award in 2022. With a visceral lyrical style, inspired by the Lo-FI American greats Elliott Smith, Sufjan Stevens & Conor Oberst, his ambient Dream-Folk songwriting pushes the boundaries of 21st Century acoustic-led music. 

As a student of Nic Jones and Joni Mitchell records, his blistering guitar technique is infused with the hazy, dreamlike essence of the 60s Folk Revival, while ambient synth-laden production fuels his reputation as a true innovator of the UK songwriting scene. With ideas covering diverse contemporary themes from displaced people to pervasive artificial intelligence, his music sits unashamedly on the cutting edge, while always remaining anchored in a highly relatable, human element.
