Compelling.   At about the fifty-second mark of Chris Tavener’s new video for ‘Right Back Again’ a subtle mystery is presented.  As multiple versions of the singer wander through a desolate small theatre apartment set, clues to the ending of the story begin to emerge, but it is not until the very end of the video that the mystery is revealed.  Tavener’s vocals are earnest and heartfelt, the sadness implied by the arrangement is confirmed by his delivery.

Tavener states that this song in fact came from personal experience: “This song came very naturally to me. I think a lot of people can relate to that feeling of losing someone, and trying to rush your recovery when your heart and mind are continually being taken back to memories shared with them.”

‘Right Back Again’ is the first single from a new E.P. produced by Aron Bicskey and titled ‘Easy Ways To Be Happy’ that will be released mid-year.  Growing up in Northwich in Cheshire, Tavener was always keen to go against the grain. While his peers were listening to the top 40, he was watching old George Formby films and listening to old concert recordings of Randy Newman. Since he first took up song-writing, he has performed at Glastonbury Festival, The Great Escape, Latitude Festival and The Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
