Chris Sykes

Poet, singer songwriter, playwright, author

I write poetry, songs and plays.

I have played live at many different gigs and recorded two LPs of my own songs. I’ve often worked on radio.

I am a member of the Society of Authors.

I was at one time, briefly, Deputy Chair of The Writers Guild of Great Britain.

New Album:

‘Unmissable. The pick of the week at Brighton Festival Fringe.

Chris Sykes is a safe bet for a good night out.’

The Latest, Brighton, Hove & Sussex

‘Mellow, sprightly, thoughtful, melodic, amusing, romantic and immensely enjoyable!

I was knocked out. An excellent production.’

Jack Gratus, writer

‘Blessed equally with wit and with a rare gift for writing seriously without taking himself too seriously.

Chris Sykes certainly seems to be a poet to watch as the twenty-first century unfolds about us….’  

Anne Stevenson
