The Necks

Chris Abrahams

Chris was born in Oamaru, New Zealand but grew up in Sydney.

He became very active in the Sydney jazz scene in the early eighties playing with modern jazz groups including Mark Simmonds’ Freeboppers and The Keys Music Orchestra. With Lloyd he formed the 60’s modern jazz-influenced The Benders in 1982. The band broke up in 1985 after having released three albums - “E”, “False Laughter” and “Distance”.

In 1984 Chris recorded and released his first solo piano album - “Piano”, followed in 1986 by “Walk”.

In 1985 Chris became a founding member of the Sydney indie rock band The Sparklers. As a result of this, Chris began working regularly with the singer and songwriter Melanie Oxley. Chris collaborated with Melanie, writing songs and producing albums, throughout the nineties. There are five releases with her: “Resisting Calm” (1990), “Welcome to Violet” (1992), “Coal” (1994), “Jerusalem Bay” (1998) and “Blood Oranges” (2003)....
