Singer-Songwriter Chris Holden explains how “Butterside Up” was written “Over the last seven years of my life I have been riding the most unstable rollercoaster you could ever dream of. I have experienced the crazy highs and brutal lows of a musician’s life.

I have been endlessly blessed with amazing opportunities and stunning relationships. Although nothing lasts forever. This album follows my erratic and emotional journey from a young jack the lad who would spend his last five on a pint to the wiser man I am today. These are the most honest lyrics I have ever written, and I have not held back any harsh truths about myself.”

Chris Holden enlisted Luke Burywood (Frontman and Producer for Abandon Ship!) to record and master his forthcoming Fifteen Track album “Butterside Up.”
