A talent on the rise Chris Werge -Launched debut album this week in Cape Town

The show was held at Roxy Review bar at GrandWest on Wednesday evening to a full house of media and friends of the singer.

The press release describes him as “Graceful, warm, soulful and uplifting are words one would use to describe the Indie Folk sound of Cape Town singer-songwriter, Chris Werge.”

With his soothing vocals and acoustic inclination, he transports listeners into a deeper experience of the soul-bearing subject matter of his compositions.

Chris has never been short of inspiration, but lends his most maturing influences from the characteristic story-telling of Indie group, Death Cab For Cutie, the well-balanced and tasteful sound of singer-songwriter John Mayer, and the hopeful anthems of artist Phil Wickham.

In 2014, discovered and mentored by Manager, Gavin Taylor and Vocalist, Bev Scott-Brown, Chris has focused his gift and passionate heart for the upliftment of others into a debut studio album entitled “Exposure”, which is released now with all songs available on ITunes .

Having recorded the album at Thundabird Studios, his production team includes Neil Benjamin (Producer) and Gerhard Grobler (Recording Engineer).

Key band members for the album include Werner Von Waltsleben (drums), Shaun Johannes (bass), Neil Benjamin (lead guitar), and Lynne Poulsen (keyboard, string & brass arrangement).

He now needs to get out and play more shows .Hopefully adult radio( or AC radio ) picks up on his work and plays his songs .Chris could be described as a young talent waiting to bloom and with careful guidance in 2015 he could be an artist worth catching and watching now !
