The 22-year old has just released his bands third long-player, I Wanna Be Your Vicar.
Dirty Water Records, the band's record label, have released a statement, saying "We are devastated by his death. Chris was as kind and good a person as anyone we've ever met, as well as being a brilliant young artist. He was highly regarded and much loved by many people including his family, his many friends and by fans of the band. It was an honour and a privilege to have known and worked with Chris, and we already miss him terribly".
We here at Shindig! are all fans of his work, and his death is a great loss to our scene.
