Born and raised in Glasgow by two classical musicians, Chris studied piano and viola before taking up guitar, bass, and drums in his teens, eventually studying music composition at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. After graduating he began work on his first album, writing and recording everything from home.
His Mercury nominated debut ‘Architect’ was released in 2015 and after a spell of touring the UK and Europe he returned to his home studio and began work on his Twilight Zone inspired second album ‘The Midnight Sun’ which was released in 2016 and shortlisted for Scottish Album of the Year.
He supported Elbow on their UK and North American tour which led him to record his third album ‘Health’ at their studio in Salford with Craig Potter, which was released in 2019 and also shortlisted for Scottish Album of the Year.
Now back in his “new and improved” home studio, Chris recorded and released his fourth album ‘Alluvium’ in May 2022 on Bella Union. He is also a keen artist, and paints all his own album artwork.
māsa (formerly known as Currer Bell) channel the essence of folk narrative into contemporary songwriting elevated by an array of instruments, soundscapes, and their sister harmonies. Their sound sits somewhere between PJHarvey and TheUnthanks: From an early age, Faron and Merle were homeschooled, which gave them the space to create a shared imaginary world brimming with characters and scenes to fill their storytelling songs. The importance of this sibling bond is behind the name: māsa means sister in Latvian, the language of their great-grandmother, whose
extraordinary life-story and vivid imagination remain a treasured legacy for the duo.
