Shopworn Angel (2024 tbc)

christopher is hard at work on a 16-track solo album, ‘Shopworn Angel’, featuring brand new material, plus a selection of songs originally intended for the album ‘Unnatural Blonde’.

Songs already recorded at The Disreputable Gentleman’s Club include ‘The Boy in the Photograph’ (featuring Emily Swift Jones), ‘The Forecast is Forever’, and ‘Black-Winged Scream’, plus ‘Come with Me’ and ‘Sway’ from the aborted ‘Unnatural Blonde’ sessions.

Stand by for updates on an album christopher hopes to complete in Autumn 2024, and release before Christmas.

Scream at the Sea (tbc)

christopher rye’s planned album ‘Scream at the Sea’ – conceived as the original follow-up to ‘Night Machines’ – will, hopefully, appear at a future date.

Unreleased tracks written for the collection include: ‘Swim to Me’, ‘Scream at the Sea’, ‘Mr Harker’, ‘Live Like This’, ‘FireDancer’, ‘Sunday in Your Heart’, ‘Tokyo Boy’, ‘Demons to Angels’, ‘Black Motorcycle’, and ‘We’ll Go No More A-Roving’, which all exist as demos.

The tracks were demoed in christopher’s old studio, on old versions of software. When christopher overhauled and upgraded the studio in lockdown, he wrote a lot of new material, plus further songs for the band Space Angel.

As a result ‘Scream At the Sea’ was set aside, but christopher plans to return to the material once he has found a way to port the work into his new setup!

Night Machines (2017)

“Music for outsiders set in the night streets of New York. Debut album from the BBC Introducing and BBC6music featured singer, songwriter, and producer, blending Roxy and Japan-style electronics with dance beats and Floydian guitars.” (CDBaby)

christopher rye’s album, ‘Night Machines’ – written, performed, and produced by christopher at his Disreputable Gentleman’s Club studio in Brighton, UK, and mastered at The Sound Lab, NJ, US – is available as a download or stream from all major digital outlets, including iTunes.
