Chris Eaton

Since the early 1980s Chris Eaton has been building a profile as one of Britain's classic songwriters. His unique brand of 'white soul' song writing has made him a favourite of the world's pop aristocracy. SIR CLIFF RICHARD has led the pack, recording more than a dozen of Chris' songs since 1981, and taking 'Saviour's Day' to No. 1 in the UK singles chart over Christmas 1990. 'Saviour's Day' has now become a Christmas 'standard' and has been recorded by a growing number of artists.
