The Flatliners frontman and Hot Water Music guitarist Chris Cresswell shared an intimate and minimalistic new solo single called 'Feel,' which deals with his life as a musican and how it can be quite a challenge to build and especially maintain meaningful and lasting relationships. You can check out the single - which will be his only solo song to be released this year - here.

The musician himself explains the background of "Feel" like this:

"Playing music for a living can cause you to live a life with blinders on. Maybe life in general is just like that at a certain age no matter what you do for a living. You’re barrelling down your own path so fast and determined, an awful lot of time can pass before you even know it. As we age, relationships become more and more crucial to our existence. We’ve all heard that “you are the company you keep”, and as time goes on we’re able to choose our own family, choose our own people, and I feel that it’s important to cultivate those relationships and allow them to continue to shape you fundamentally as a person. This song is about the simple fact of effort being paramount in a relationship, and that sometimes that effort can break down if you’re always the one out there floating in space around the people you love."

Chris shows no signs of slowing down though and you can pretty much catch him everywhere in the next couple of months.
