Merthyr singer songwriter Chris is’nt known for sitting still for to long. In the last year he has recorded a new EP (The Long Road Home) and toured the southern states of America. “It was such an honour playing in theatres our heroes played in years ago”. Its frightening when you realise the history of some places. That was the thinking behind the new EP. “When you think about roots and Americana the most important thing is being honest and authentic.I think we achieved it” One of the tracks on the EP was written specifically for the Merthyr Rising. “It was such an important part of our history and at the core of what makes us what we are. We were fighting then, we re still fighting now”
