Chris is the Lead Guitarist in a local Band - The Volts. The group was formed 18 months ago and can be found regularly playing in places like Liverpool and Manchester with, a recent trip taking them to South Wales where they played at Cwmaman, the home of The Stereophonics!

Chris describes the genre of music as “Pop Rock with a raw and blues edge” - similar to Royal Blood. The Vaults were recently featured on Real XS, Manchester’s rock radio station where a full feature was dedicated to the band showcasing their musical talent.

With regional gigs planned throughout the summer at festivals and original music venues; this band is one to watch. You can find The Vaults demos @ and further information on events @
Chris rejoined Solomons in 2013 and since his return has proven himself a real asset to the team, acting as buddy and mentor to new staff members and regularly referring consultancy tasks and opportunities back to the management team, helping to develop a strong client relationship.
Although he has lots to do outside of work appearing with the Volts, Chris has also been actively developing his contractual and legal awareness via the ICE Conract Law and NEC night class course, which he has found to be very useful in the practical aspects of NEC contract administration.
