Chris Bailey was still a teenager who had only ever played in Church when he got his first gig with the legendary Chaka Khan. It was the confirmation he needed to leave his native Sheffield, England and make for the bright lights of London and the highly competitive London Session Scene.
Years of playing gospel instilled in him the necessary groove, along with deep inspiration from his guru Dennis Chambers,. Other influences from Vinnie Colaiuta, Dave Weckl, Steve Jordan and Michael Bland helped shape and discipline his drumming for today's tightly structured tours.
Over the years he has played with Mica Paris, Eternal, the Spice Girls, Michelle Gayle, Lighthouse Family, Bond, Garath Gates, Will Young, Daniel Bedingfield, Queen Latifah, Cirque Du Soleil and is currently touring with Britney Spears.
