From an early age, music has been a driving force for Chris Cope. Picking up Drums at age 12 and Guitar at 14, exemplified his musical aptitude, which was recognized at age 16 - being awarded ʻBest Jazz Drummerʼ at the National Jazz Awards.
Chris is probably best known for his time as guitarist in the band Eight who enjoyed commercial success with a Rock Radio airplay #1, Gold selling album and live performances which included Big Day Out and opening for International acts like Creed and Incubus.
A strong desire to develop his own career saw Chris move to London for 2 years. There, he spent time playing in the English Music Scene as well as support on a European tour for Euro-star Lucy Silvas. Upon his return and keen to re-introduce himself to New Zealand, Chris released his acoustic EP, ʻThe Way it Looksʼ.
Now, after some time writing as well as touring in Southeast Asia and at home, Chris gives us ʻWorld Without Youʼ -- the first single release from his forthcoming full length album.
