What more is there to say about the icon who is Chris Difford! As a member of one of London’s best-loved bands, the Squeeze co-founder has made a lasting contribution to English music with hits such as ‘Cool For Cats’, ‘Up The Junction’, ‘Labelled With Love’, ‘Goodbye Girl’, 'Pulling Mussels', ‘Tempted’... the list just goes on...
Chris Difford is a rare breed. Despite the fact that Chris has helped soundtrack so many fans’ lives since his first release in 1977, the passion for innovation and love of playing still drives him to carry on writing rather than sit back and admire his handiwork.
Chris and Glenn wrote two new Squeeze albums in the last four years - the first based on the life of Danny Baker, and the soundtrack to the BBC2 production ‘Cradle To Grave’ staring Peter Kay. The most recent Squeeze album ‘The Knowledge’ released to rave reviews in 2017.
Over the course of a 14 album career with Squeeze, it was clear from the very beginning that Chris Difford has few peers when it comes to smart, pithy lyricism. His ‘kitchen sink-drama’ style has drawn plaudits from fans on both sides of the Atlantic, while his influence is keenly felt today by the likes of Lily Allen and Mark Ronson.
Chris has also written with Jools Holland, Paul Carrack and Elton John.
