Described by Rolling Stone Magazine as “one of our greatest guitarists”, Chris Cheney is one of Australia’s most prolific performers and songwriters. Having played the guitar since the age of ten, Chris has an ear for a hook and an obvious knack for penning lyrics with a social and political message. His band The Living End, which he formed as a 17-year-old school kid in 1992, is most renowned for its intense live performances, its 1990s fist-punching anthems Prisoner of Society and Second Solution, and its multi-award winning single and album White Noise. Amongst their achievements, The Living End have had eight Top 10 albums (including two number ones), twelve Top 40 singles, won six ARIA Awards, and APRA Song of the Year for White Noise.
Chris continues to be a prevalent influence on the Australian music scene. With recent appearances as lead cast member in the international rock opera “American Idiot”, an upcoming European tour and a new The Living End album on the way, Chris Cheney is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.
