Fire Follows is a solo artist out of Colorado. Writing, performing, and producing all elements of the music, Chris Watt is a world class musician that is sure to be a star within the hard-rock/metal genres. He has a backstory that will offer hope and encouragement to all those who hear.
In 2008, while singing for the hard rock group “Author,” he began experiencing severe problems with his singing and speaking voice. After multiple visits with vocal specialists and doctors, it was determined that he had partially paralyzed a vocal cord. In addition to the partial paralysis, he was also born with Tourette’s Syndrome, a neurologic disorder which further complicated the weakness within the voice. As a result, he almost entirely lost the ability to speak/sing for over 5 years.
Although devastated, he used this time to enhance his musicianship on the piano, drums, and guitar, while also educating himself in the areas of audio engineering and production. After three vocal cord procedures, Fire Follows has fully regained the ability to sing. Signing a deal with Pavement Entertainment, his debut EP, If It’s War You Want, is due for a worldwide release on May 31, 2019. All five songs are considered singles and emanate from the loss and triumph endured over the last decade. This EP is sure to turn ears within the industry and offer hope to all those who hear the music.
