Chris Dent is a musician determined to share his unique stories through song, his vessel is his award-winning indie-folk band Albi & The Wolves. He is most renowned for his unique voice, an instrument that’s been described as both powerful and intimate at the same time. Between that and his striking aesthetic, he stands out in any ensemble he performs in.
Chris is a musician who has albinism, that’s where the Albi comes from in his band’s name, but he has not let a lack of vision stop him or define him. His band is known for their fantastic live shows and engaging songwriting, they are also known for being hard working as they tour constantly.
Some achievements for the band include winning the Best Folk Artist award at the Aotearoa Music Awards in 2018, collaborating with Mt Eden Dubstep and having over one million streams for the track “Fall With You”. They blew audiences away at WOMAD in 2020, Woodford Folk Festival in 2017, and the TSB Festival Of Lights in 2016 and 2019. Also, they’ve performed in Canada, Rarotonga and often spend time in Australia.
When he’s not performing with the band he’s performing on this own, or with a range of musicians he has the pleasure of performing with around his current hometown Auckland. When he’s not doing that he’s teaching, managing the band, or writing material for Albi & The Wolves.
