Chris T-T announces departure from music
By Andy Malt | Published on Thursday 20 April 2017
Chris T-T has announced that he is splitting up. Or whatever the term is for when a solo artist decides to throw in the towel. He’s set to release a now more poignant 20th anniversary compilation next month, and will be playing shows up until a big finale this autumn.
Writing on his website, the musician said: “I’ve decided to give up making and touring music as Chris T-T for the foreseeable future. The UK concerts I’m doing in the next few weeks will be the last T-T tour dates, which is cool because they’re 20th Anniversary ‘Best Of’ shows anyway. After that I’m booked for three summer festivals, including Cambridge Folk. Finally, if we can organise it, I’ll do one-off ‘farewell’ night in London, which will be in autumn”.
Of his plans, he adds: “From 1 Jun, I’m hoping to try some new projects. I like audio editing and podcasting, so I’m developing ideas there. Maybe I’ll write a book, I don’t know. I’ll always compose and play piano – but if I return to making music publicly at any point, I feel as if I need to start from scratch and create in an entirely fresh way”.
