He often states that his music is just trying to make sense of religion, philosophy and science. Other major themes are loss and mistrust. Read more on Last.fm
Kris Williams is a British singer-songwriter, born in Wales on International Women's day (March 8th, 1977). His childhood involved no heavy upheavals, but frequent holidays abroad. Numerous times in interviews he has discussed a close family upbringing based around devoted parents: a scientific father and a religious mother. He often states that his music is just trying to make sense of religion, philosophy and science.

Other major themes are loss and mistrust. After returning to the UK and starting college, he started playing under the name Eso Burst in a band 'The Fantastic Super Foofs.' They released 3 independent singles in 2001 on Floating Toast Records / Fuzzbox Records and toured with good friends 'Mclusky' with whom they shared the same management. 'The Fantastic Super Foofs' became just 'The Foofs' and on an ill-fated, cold winter night in Camden, London they played to half the A&R people of the UK. It was during this time the band had a meltdown, they disappeared after this. Following this, the plan was to give up on music. However, after a trip to Chicago to see Mclusky complete their third album with Steve Albini - Williams came back with new plans and a new band name 'Kaptainblack' (homage to Frank Black) although the line-up remained unchanged.

They recorded the album in 3 weeks in December 2003 and named it 'In Fertility.' The songs were (in his own words) 'a new movement tagged - (Blunktry) - a homage to low-budget, punk ethos recordings derived from the origins of punk, blues and country.' 'In fertility' wasn't released until April 2005, when it received mixed reviews. Williams started making more popular, mainstream music with an up and coming band 'Dirty Perfect' at this time. He wrote and performed under the name 'Kip Armstrong' allegedly an narcoleptic-insomniac. They released a 4-track EP called 'Dirty Perfect' and a 2-track 7' single called 'Quaterback Hairdo' and signed to Sony ATV publishing in November 2005. 2006 should have been a fruitful year, but Williams became further and further detached from the band and the 'pop-approach song formula.' He started to experiment with types of music he had always been fond of folk, electronica and country. This experimentation resulted in Eugene Francis Jnr being formed. Eugene Francis Jnr's first album 'The Golden Beatle' is due for release April 28th 2008.

His first single 'Poor Me / Kites' was out during the summer of 2007. He toured extensively in 2007 with his friends Tegan and Sara. He often plays with a 7-piece band called 'The Juniors' made up from the cream of the Welsh Music Scene. Williams has admitted to a strong bi-polar disorder where 'things are either sky-high good' or 'bangkok-trench bad.' He is either overtly confident or a misanthropic recluse. Read more on Last.fm.
