After reviewing close to forty eligible entries, the judges votes are in and Christopher Engel from Monash University has scored himself $1000 worth of music gear from Haworth Music, in our Competition giveaway for the month of April.
Christopher Engel is a singer-songwriter based in Melbourne. His music draws on the acoustic style of John Mayer and Ed Sheeran with a focus on great storytelling and catchy pop choruses, while showcasing his distinctive bass-baritone voice.
Growing up in Denmark, Chris first fell in love with music by listening to his parent’s record collection and would often perform ABBA and Beatles covers in the living room. His love for music deepened as a teenager when he discovered alternative rock acts like Jeff Buckley and Coldplay, and he picked up both the guitar and piano, while gradually finding his own voice in songwriting.
Since moving to Australia in 2013, Chris has performed countless solo acoustic gigs in bars and cafes before playing his first full-band headline show in June 2019 to launch his debut single. Chris’ second single came out in February 2020, and he is now focusing on writing to release his debut EP towards the end of 2020.
