Chris Morton is a guitarist and music teacher specialising in electric and acoustic one-to-one tuition. He grew up in South Yorkshire where he became surgically attached to the guitar aged 11. Fast forward to 2018, and Chris has a full-time teaching schedule, alongside recording with his band Team Picture, and performing at venues and festivals across the UK. He is also the tutor for schools in Leeds, and has students who learn with him via Skype.
Since forming in 2016, Team Picture have earned praise at Radio 1, BBC Introducing, and secured multiple spins at BBC 6Music with support from Huw Stephens, Tom Robinson and Steve Lamacq, as well as ticking off support slots with the likes of Parquet Courts, Psychic Ills, The Orielles and Ulrika Spacek.
In addition, the band have performed at the likes of Bluedot Festival (along with Warpaint and the Pixies), the Wire-curated Drill Festival and Manchester’s Neighbourhood Festival, as well as selling out their own curated ‘Du The Katman’ night at Leeds’ Hyde Park Book Club.
In 2017, Chris worked as a recording guitarist for ITV’s Girlfriends series, which aired in 2018.
Chris completed his BA Hons Degree in Popular Music from Leeds College of Music in 2011, with majors in composition and performance.
