Eric Chenaux’s body of solo work is documented across five albums released on the Constellation label since 2006, centering around his dextrous, fried guitar playing juxtaposed with a gorgeously clear and lyrical singing voice. An ingenious recombinant use of traditional folk and consort music tropes in earlier albums has over time evolved into a wholly original form of balladry, shot through with a singular vernacular of improvised electric and nylon-string guitar excursions. Sample sounds from his most recent album Skullsplitter (2015) below.
