Chris Howgate was born in the run down and drab town of Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, and was raised in the neighboring, and equally drab town of Batley & Slough. He has lived on and off in Brighton for about a decade with brief spells under canvas in North Scotland. Chris makes songs, is influenced by nature and solitude, and plays with bleach.
"I started off by making t-shirts because I was sick of seeing all these gaudy meaningless slogans on clothes. I couldn't think of anything worse than wearing someone elses boring opinion on my clothes. This has led to me working with bleach. It's great for calligraphy. I love the way it develops." - Chris Howgate
