Chris Mountford is a musician and founder of The Band Project.
Chris decided that his career path was going to be music at the age of 14. He studied at The Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, and has toured supporting Will Young, performed with Jools Holland and organised jazz concerts in London and at home in Sussex featuring award-winning musicians.
Chris’ passion for live music and realisation that young musicians didn’t have the opportunity to learn and experience what being in a band was all led him to launch The Band Project.
His vision is to create national network of Band Project Centres giving young musicians the complete band experience of rehearsal, recording and live performance in an encouraging, supportive and achievement based atmosphere.
