Hi my name is Chris Williams and I'm a 19 year old singer songwriter who fronts a young band called VELLA. I started playing acoustically from the age of 7 and at 15 I played  The Acoustic Festival of Britain. Not being able to find young musicians to help support my writing ambitions I turned to older 'session' musicians who were paid to play with me. Greg Haver, Producer for Manics Street Preachers, Bullet For My Valentine, Super Furry Animals etc saw one of my songs online and flew from New Zealand to produce the track, 'Like A Stone'. I released it under the name The Attix with the session musicians backing me. A second track was produced and released, 'You're My Addiction' and between them I was made BBC Wales Artist of the week, received 8 weeks play listing on Planet Rock and Radio X made it new record of the week. All this was achieved by the age of 17 and culminated in me playing Camden Rock with the session musicians all aged 30-45. I decided that during my 18th year it was time to form a band with like minded young people. I now have that young band and it's called Vella. To get to this point has taken a lot of personal and family money and I'm at a point were I/we need help. Two of the lads in Vella are at college and live at home with their mum with very little income, its to this end that I'm asking for some help to produce 3 songs with Vella. This will allow us to upload to both Soundcloud and BBC Introducing to take our careers to the next level. Below are some of the kind words that have been said about us:

"The beginning of something very exciting… the perfect storm" - Bethan Elfyn, BBC Intro

 There is huge potential righthere" - Jack Saunders, Radio X #SOTN (Shock Of The New)

“It's unbelievable! He’s about to hit if off big time!” - Sian Williams, A Music Podcast

“Only seventeen, pretty impressive stuff!” - John Kennedy, Radio X, X-Posure

“I really like this, a real riff fest!” - Wyatt Wendels, Planet Rock, New Rock Show

“You need these guys in your life" - Andrew Shay, Nation Radio

“A star in the making with a long bright future ahead” - Virtuoso Sounds

“I’m certain great things await” - Dave Owens, Wales Online
