Chistopher Wortley


Chris is a full-time songwriter. He writes songs for musical theatre, cabaret and revue and hopes to make people laugh and cry. (He has definitely achieved the former – the latter is harder - but one singer at least claims to have cried in rehearsals over Chris’ lyrics.) There is, Chris feels, something almost magical about the successful marriage of words and music – something quite distinct from music alone, poetry or prose.

 He usually writes both music and words but he also enjoys collaborating with lyricists on songs and shows, producing original material to order.
