Lead Vocals and Lead Guitar

Chris Johnson

Chris has been playing in bands since making his debut at Stratford Civic Hall in 1995, aged 15. He has been involved in the local music scene ever since, playing his original material in bands such as Blue, The Wash and Sperm Whale Eddie. Nowadays, Chris enjoys the opportunity afforded by KTO to play a wide variety of material (a sort of live jukebox) and is largely responsible for the musical direction of the band although he does occasionally allow the other members to make suggestions to add a touch of democracy to proceedings. Whisper it quietly but he is particularly happy that in this band, the odd indulgent guitar solo (Voodoo Chile anyone?) is warmly welcomed. Prior to the founding of KTO, Chris was playing solo acoustic shows, something he still does from time to time, and watch out too for the occasional extra-curricula collaboration with brother Nick.
