Live and Local: Chris Gillespie

Creative Penrith By Night

Chris Gillespie is an independent artist from the Blue Mountains of NSW. His songs are beautiful, bursting with observational yearning.

‘Sydney’s answer to Bob Dylan” – Dave Regos – FBi Radio.

Gillespie is renowned by his audience and peers for his songwriting craft, especially his lyrics.

“You can expect beautiful instrumentation coupled with meaningful and thought provoking words and harmonies [that] are downright gorgeous” – Tom Ballard – Triple J.

His music is very Australian, highly original and delivered with refreshing honesty and integrity.

Chris Gillespie enjoyed a very busy and abundantly successful 2012 with the release of his debut album ‘Unnatural Light’. The title track spent months in the top 20 of the Triple J Unearthed charts. The song was also used as the soundtrack to a short film, which was aired on Channel 9.
