"Bound to Rise is the debut album from Leeds based, Yorkshire born artist Chris Brain. Recorded onto analog tape, the album consists of 10 live performances that offer an enthralling meditation on nature, with glimpses of the confessional. Chris Brain renders songs embedded in folk tradition and the pastoral, with a contemporary resonance. Drawing inspiration from the outdoors and song writers such as John Martyn, Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell, Chris explores distinctive fingerpicking patterns and alternate tunings in his sound.

"Recorded straight to tape like the good old days, its an acoustic gem - BBC Radio 6, Tom Robinson
