As Squeeze co-founder and songwriter of one of London’s best-loved bands, double Ivor Novello winner Chris Difford has made a lasting contribution to English music with hits such as 'Cool For Cats', 'Up The Junction', 'Pulling Mussels' and 'Tempted'.
2017 proved to be a whirlwind year: 'Chris To The Mill' - a box set of his 3 studio albums - was released in March on Edsel Records and Amazon; Squeeze released a brand new album 'The Knowledge' alongside their UK and US 'Join the Dots' tour; and, as if that’s not enough, Chris's autobiography 'Some Fantastic Place' was released in August published by Orion.
He will tour the book throughout 2018 in all the good bookshops and small theatres of England as well as releasing his fourth studio album written with Boo Hewerdine called 'Not Only But Also'.
Chris is joined by soulful folk harmony trio Arcelia.
Arcelia (pronounced Ah-KELL-ia – meaning ‘treasure chest’ in old Spanish) are songwriter Gavin Alexander (has supported the likes of Mark Nevin, co -wrote the theme tune to Studio Ghibli's Emmy award winning TV series, Ronja the Robber's Daughter), voice artist Teresa Gallagher (Octonauts, Thunderbirds, Thomas & Friends) and Flying Picket Simon Foster. Together they create an exquisite sound which has been likened to Crosby Stills & Nash, America, Paul Simon and Squeeze (they regularly perform and tour with Chris Difford). They have also been in demand as a support act for the likes of Scott Matthews, Oysterband, Coope Boyes and Simpson, Michele Stodart and Maddy Prior.
