Chris lives in Westville, South Africa. He started playing drums in 2005 in his local church. In 2010 Chris joined a full time worship ministry called Arise Ministries and participated in “The Year of Your Life” program, studying worship on a practical and theoretical level. At the end of that year he joined the band (Arise Band) and has been playing with them ever since.
Chris first heard Heartbeat cymbals at the South African leg of the Hillsong United tour, and it wasn’t too much longer before Chris ordered his first cymbals.
Arise Band recorded their first EP entitled “Jesus Is”, a full studio recording done at Northwind Studio, under Niklas Fairclough, and is being released in June, 2014.
