About Me:
... I'm a songwriter and producer of kids praise and family worship songs, living in the coastal town of Dawlish in Devon, UK. I'm married to Sharon and we have a son, Joshua (b.1999) whom we teach at home. Our church home is Mars Hill Church in the neighbouring coastal town of Teignmouth. We have a pet Giant African Land Snail called Billy who says 'hello' to you.

Over recent years, I strongly felt led to write praise and worship songs for children, putting aside ambitions to compose for theatre and film. My aim is for kids praise songs to be fun and quirky but intelligent which kids and adults love to sing and listen to. This, I think, is a great way to teach God's truths and stir a heartfelt response of praise to God for whom He is and what He's done for us.

"If I'd been the only one to sin, God's love means He'd still give me Jesus"

Being involved in Children's ministry often means bouncing around clutching a guitar trying to generate enthusiasm amongst kids who stare back at me blankly. Coming from Devon means I can do convincing pirate impressions (ahhaarrr - see, told you) which sometimes helps in that sort of ministry (although it wrecks my throat). The song "Ahoy There" on the new CD demonstrates this beautifully (?!)

"Knowing Jesus is the greatest, finest treasure that there be. Ahaaaarrrrrr"

My music is often described as creative, colourful and theatrical and nowhere more so than on the...

Perfect for kids aged 0-200

Described by one reviewer as "Musical Heaven for Kids", this kids concept CD contains 53 marvellous minutes and 23 scrumptious seconds of 13 quirky but catchy biblically based songs....

1 All Aboard the Heaven Express
2 Jesus said I am the Way
3 For God Loved the World so Much
4 On and On and On forever and ever
5 Fix your Eyes upon Jesus
6 Keep on Asking, Keep on Seeking
7 Why Worry (a.k.a. the Worry Song)
8 Love the Lord your God
9 Whenever you Eat, munch, munch
10 I'm a Jesus Fan
11 Ahoy There (Ahaaaaarrrrrrrrr)
12 Don't Run out of Steam
13 We look to that day (When Our Long Journey Ends)

As a reviewer said: "Using the theme of a train journey, Chris uses train announcements, sound effects, and whole box full of whacky sounds to create a musical heaven for young kids"......... and kids even older than me seem to love it too!

The review went on to say that the CD was "every bit as good as (Duggie Dug Dug, Dave Godfrey and Ishmael) and certainly better than numerous other children’s albums I’ve heard”.

Favorite Music:
I like music that speaks for itself, that's full of imagery and is inspired, with instrumentaion that go beyond the usual guitar, piano, bass and drums.

The music I like on my stereo is usually atmospheric instrumental music like Vangelis, Kitaro, Jean Michel Jarre or Mike Oldfield that takes me somewhere else.

Even though I write kids praise songs, I try to use imagery in the music as well as lyrics and frequently use sound effects as an intergral part of the composition.
Favorite Bible Verses / Passages:
Isaiah 53 - all of it. The accurate prophecy of Christ's death is stunning.
Romans 8 - all of it. There's so many great principles in there.
John 11 - where Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead - goosebumps every time

Would anyone like to try my CD for free for a month?

I'm a songwriter and producer from Devon, UK and have released a CD "All Aboard the Heaven Express". It is fun and Biblically based, and very well suited for kids and family worship.

It'll be great for a relatively unknown writer like me, if others could listen to it as well. So I am now offering my friends at Worship The Rock my CD for a month's free trial.

If you would like to receive it and play it for a month then please let me know your postal and email addresses by… Continue
