Chris Liggett  MD/Writer/Producer/Musician

Studio The Qube, Acton, London

Chris Liggett is a young, fresh new addition to the Z Management roster. He is a diverse talent - specialising as a musical director, writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist. He plays guitar, bass, keys and drums and is also a programmer. Chris prides himself on his ability to create exciting and impressive live musical soundscapes, whether it's for an awards ceremony, live headline show or a simple acoustic performance for TV/online purposes. As a musical director, Chris is able to oversee an artist's live project from the ground up - from auditioning and assembling an artist's band to building reliable playback systems in order to create modern and polished live performances. Chris also has endoresements from the likes of Keeley Electronics, Aston Microphones and G7th.

Following his audition for ZAYN's live band, Chris's breakthrough came when he was appointed to work with EMI/BMG artist HRVY. Chris has been his long term musical director and also plays in his band as a guitarist. Chris has toured extensively throughout the world with HRVY (including a support slot with The Vamps) and is currently on a UK tour, playing two sold out dates at the London Palladium. Chris was also heavily involved in HRVY's recent blockbuster performance at ITV's NTA's (National Television Awards). In addition to his work with HRVY, Chris is working with the hotly tipped Cody Frost (managed by Vicky Dowdall - Ella Henderson, Nina Nesbitt) as her musical director.

Chris has also been involved in performances at the Capital Summertime Ball, BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards, Big Brother (Philippines), MAD Video Music Awards Athens, X Factor Celebrity UK and many more. He has also performed internationally at festivals including Reading and Leeds, Radio 1's Big Weekend, VG Lista Oslo and YouTube Fanfest Indonesia.

Alongside his live work, Chris is also a keen writer/producer, with a penchant for pop, guitar pop and R&B. He is ostensibly a track writer but also guides on lyrics. On this side, Chris has been extensively involved with the hotly tipped artist Tim Gallagher (who is imminently signing his first major label deal). Chris has not only been involved with Tim's live set up, but has also been very hands on developing Tim's sound, co-writing and producing for his project. Some of these tracks include his most popular single "Lost Without You" (which now has over half a million streams on Spotify alone), "Partners In Crime" and latest single "Fool". Chris is also looking for new projects from both writing and production angles.

In terms of sync, Chris has also written and produced music that has been featured in many high profile television shows including Love Island USA, CBBC, Married at First Sight, UEFA Champions League, CBS Sports and many more.

Other previous projects include Rak Su, Millie Turner, Cassidy Stone, Cambio Sun, Joel Rothwell (aka Are You Joely) and Ian Prowse.

Chris is based in Manchester but also works from The Qube, Acton, London.
