About Chris Lloyds
Professional singer, Chris Lloyds travels the country performing the jazz standards and pop classics. He performs as a solo performer, with a Big Band or any line up in between. In 2018 Chris performed to a full house at QPAC in Brisbane with the 30 piece Australian Symphony Orchestra under the baton of George Ellis performing his The Hits of the Crooners Show.

In 2016 Chris and Art Phillips released an acoustic swing version of Forever and Ever as a tribute to Demis Roussos who passed away in January 2015. Art Phillips was Demis' musical director for 3 years in the 1980s.

Chris released his 3rd solo album, Chris Lloyds Sings Matt Monro on Fanfare Records through Ambition/Universal Music in 2013.

In 2011 Chris released So Good So Far with guitarist Art Phillips. 10 standards and 2 original songs were recorded live in the studio as Perry Como and Tony Mottola had done in the 1960s. Art Phillips was also Barry Manilow's MD during the late 80s.

Chris was born in Melbourne and started singing at the age of 7. He became head chorister at Christ Church in South Yarra.
