With a sound that takes you on a journey straight to a relaxing moment by the ocean, 17 year old Bundaberg singer songwriter Chris Dingley has a sound that you want more of.
Describing his music as contemporary surf rock and laid back indie style, it is something that has developed very organically for Chris who has played both the cello and guitar since primary school, with his passion being guitar.
Performing at live venues in and around Bundaberg since 2017, Chris has brought out some of his biggest influences, bands like Sticky Fingers and Hockey Dad.
Chris said he was increasingly, writing, producing and releasing my own music on the major streaming services and have recently re-released my debut single, These Days.
“I was very proud of These Days and it has received a good response so I am in the process of recording two new songs which will be released in due course,” he said.
“I planned for 2020 to be my breakout year with regards to picking up recurring gigs at the premiere venues in the area, unfortunately with two venues burning down and the Covid pandemic, these plans have been delayed.
“I am lucky in that I regularly play at various markets around town and am excited about an upcoming event at the Metro in November.
“I get a thrill every time I perform because there is just something about playing in front of a crowd and engaging with them.”
For those wanting to see Chris live he has upcoming gigs on November 8 at the Shalom Markets, November 22 at Paradise Markets and November 28 at the Metro Hotel for the Bundy Young Guns.
