"Genius. A modern-day Blake. Music so unfettered it never had moorings to slip." – THE TIMES.
In 2007 T-T signed to emerging London folk/punk label Xtra Mile Recordings for Capital (2008), a more fully realised alt-rock album including guest appearances from Emmy The Great and members of British Sea Power, Bellowhead and Razorlight. A stint as Frank Turner's piano player and several more solo albums for Xtra Mile Recordings cemented T-T's growing influence on a swathe of UK songwriters. Then in 2017, after celebrating his 20th anniversary in music with a Best Of collection, Chris T-T abruptly gave up music, closing his career with a short tour and two sellout concerts in London.
