Garry Christian is lead singer of the band THE CHRISTIANS who burst onto the music scene in the late 80s when their debut album of the same name (which still remains to this day Islands records highest selling debut album) was released to huge acclaim. The instantly recognisable album released no less than 7 singles including Forgotten Town, Ideal World, Born Again, Hooverville ... the bands second album COLOUR knocked off Phil Collins from the Number One slot in 1991 and the band went on to enjoy years of UK european success with Words, Whats in a Word, Father and other hits from subsequent album HAPPY IN HELL. Their cover HARVEST FOR THE WORLD for Unicef was complimented by the Isley Brothers and is played constantly to this day and Garrys distinctive lead vocals are heard alongside Paul McCartney and Holly Johnson on the Ferry Across the Mersey recorded after the tragedy at Hillsborough 1989. In 1995 Garry moved to Paris where he released a Mercury nominated solo album YOUR COOL MYSTERY (although little known [due to its release in France only] was widely regarded as his finest work) During his time in Paris Garry also presented on Paris Radio Station ‘Chante France’ where he was known as ‘The Midnight Cowboy’.
Garry still an imposing character and extraordinarily handsome man of 6ft 4 has a distinctive but gentle Liverpudlian accent, his voice was described by Daily Mirrror as ‘one of the finest soul voices in pop’ and still sounds as good today as he did back then. His band THE CHRISTIANS have a 40 date tour (currently on 2nd round of reschedules due to Covid) as well many prestigious festival bookings throughout 2021 (Rewind, Cornbury, Pub in the Park etc) where The Christians have a reputation for performing a belting set packed full of the hits that evoke emotional outbursts and pure nostalgia from the crowd.
Described by Chris Evans as 'the best gig he's ever been to' The Christians are a reminder that not everything from the 80s was uncool! The surprising meaningful and appropriate songs combined with a Garrys voice that quite literally 'penetrates the soul' ... its not difficult to see why THE CHRISTIANS seem to be celebrating such a big resurgance!
