Artist: Chris Field, Album: Chris Field, Song: Where You Gonna Run To Now

Chris Field is a multi-instrumentalist and genre bending musician who started out in Canada but now calls England home.  There isn't a lot written about him but from what I can piece together, he spent the better part of the mid to late nineties playing rock and roll in Vancouver.  That is where he recorded this gem of an album in 1998.  It has a sixty's pop feel to it and the song, Where You Gonna Run To Now, is absolutely stunning and vocally reminiscent of another Vancouver band named, 54-40.  As the story goes, he then relocated to Toronto and from there, London, England.  He was discovered by a producer in Julian Lennon's circle of influence and landed a record deal.  He is recording for the label, Warmgun Records, at the moment and has released a number of albums of electronic music.  He has also worked with Ian Brown of the Stones Roses and tours Europe frequently.  Beyond music, he has published a book of short stories and has been cast in an upcoming movie about the life of Syd Barrett.  You can follow Chris at  All of his most recent work is available through Itunes.  However, this particular album is a difficult find today.  At the time of this blog, there were copies trading on Amazon for $25.  You can hear the song, Where You Gonna Run To Now, on You Tube (  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
