Where To Go
Chris Morphitis' debut album was recorded in his suburban garden shed, and merges a love of Zimbabwean and Greek music with his intuitive passion for experimentalism. Drawing deep on the spirit of improvisation, Morphitis built the album up from recorded takes of complete live performances, the idea being to retain any imperfections and sense of spontaneity.

Composer, guitarist and producer Chris Morphitis first learnt his craft at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama where he studied electronic music and classical guitar. Soon after, he landed himself in numerous bands and paved his way as a session musician, playing with the likes of Mara Carlyle (Accidental), Max De Wardener (Accidental) and Elmore Judd (Honest Jon's).
Morphitis soon moved into the world of film composing, contributing his signature guitar sounds to films such as 'Woman In The Fifth' by Pawel Pawlikowski and 'Life In A Day' by Ridley Scott. Never one to rest on his laurels, Morphitis soon tried his hand as a producer, working with MOBO nominated 'Best African Act' The Owiny Sigoma Band, whose 2011 self titled release came out on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood Recordings.
Morphitis also formed his own band Mavrika, releasing their first album of 1920's Greek Rebetika to critical acclaim. Now venturing out by himself for the first time, Morphitis' first solo offering sees him combining his love of Zimbabwean and Greek music with his intuitive passion for experimentalism.
