2020 was supposed to be the year country artist Chris Andreucci followed his dream of moving to the heart of country music, Nashville. Unfortunately along with numerous of festival performances being cancelled, so was his plans for moving. Still determined to make those dreams a reality, Chris has released his new EP, ‘What Don’t Kill You’, a long-awaited six track collection.
The Glasgow based singer has already played headline shows at Glasgow’s iconic venue King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, as well as the Celtic Connections show at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, not forgetting that he’s performed at the huge SSE Hydro Arena in Scotland. Taking inspiration from some of his heroes such as Lewis Capaldi and Paolo Nutini, he hopes to become the latest Italo-Scot to conquer charts across the globe.
12 months in the waiting, Chris has poured his heart out into both the lyrical content and the music of his EP, with 6 songs capturing his country sound with a Scottish twist.
Singing about tough yet relatable topics of loss and battling through difficult times, Chris creates relatable songs in a contemporary country style, with tracks like ‘Here Comes The Rain’ and ‘The Only Love That Never Broke My Heart’ having more rock infused riffs and catchy beats, while fans are also treated to heartbreaking ballads in ‘Thunderstorms and Rain’ and ‘Drinking Song’. Chris shows his range of skill in music writing in the romantically heart warming song ‘Tonight I’m Yours’, and in the final track on the EP, ‘Freedom’, which is full of soul and passion with a melodic tone and soothing vocals.
After taking a trip to America and performing a number dates in Nashville in May 2019, Chris was quickly signed to Nashville-based label Century Music Group after being spotted by the President Art Ward.
