Best known as a member of Squeeze, Chris Difford is considered one of Britains most celebrated and iconic lyricists. His timeless kitchen sink lyrics are classic stories which bring characters to life and turn the mundane into the beautiful. He has twice won the prestigious Ivor Novello award and continues to write not only for Squeeze but other contemporary musicians.
Emma Poole of Opus Fine Art said, Chris Diffords evocative lyrics have become part of Britains rich musical history, and they translate beautifully into our new prints. Were extremely proud to have worked closely with Chris on these editions, and to offer them exclusively for sale through our website.
Chris Difford is currently touring the US with Squeeze, which will be followed by a UK solo show with Norman Lovett, including a limited run at The Gilded Balloon Theatre during this years Edinburgh Festival.
The double Ivor Novello winning, walking enigma that is Chris Difford, one half of the inimitable and timeless Squeeze: with his sometimes bewildering kitchen sink lyrics and urban folk stories, Difford has brought us characters and sketches from every day life, turning that mundane into the beautiful, the urbane into the exquisite, for over 30 years.
With his partner, collaborator, friend and Squeeze co-founder Glenn Tilbrook, Chris has written some of the most enduring and best-loved songs of our time. Up The Junction, Cool For Cats and Labeled With Love, to name but a few, all have their well earned places on recurrent play, in radio stations across the world. And Squeeze now enjoy a new generation of fans, with celebrity admirers such as Lily Allen and Mark Ronson and The Feeling.
Difford has released 3 critically acclaimed solo albums, toured relentlessly both inside and outside of Squeeze, and as one of the countrys most respected songwriters has co-written with a host of musicians and performers that reads as a veritable whos who of the industry. One of his most recent co-writes appears on the best selling Ollie Murs album, proving Diffords classic yet still contemporary touch.
