Chris Flood was born in Newport, Isle of Wight in the UK and moved to the Isle of Man aged just 11, where his musical journey began. Growing up in Douglas, the Island’s capital, he listened mainly to the alternative music scene of the late 90’s and early 00’s before learning to play guitar. As a self taught vocalist as well, he has used these talents in the last few years to write his own material, which has culminated in his debut album, “Opinion is not a substitute for reason”, available in the shop on the Section 5 site.
Chris has been working hard on new material since 2010, which will see a release of a second album in 2011. In the lead up to that, a limited release, download only, taster EP was released in March 2011; ‘The Jam Sandwich EP’.
Having strayed away from the bulk of the live music scene on the Island, there are plans for the Chris Flood Band to make a return of some form to back up the release of the new album and to perform the new tracks to audiences who have waited patiently enough!
