Acoustic guitars that sound like the beginning of something beautiful, seamless harmonies that give you hope for humanity and authentic production that makes you feel something again. Deep down.

 

Welcome to The Lonely Fighters. 

Harking back to the classic 70’s California sounds of Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles and John Denver, their debut album, releasing late February 2022, will have you singing along in the car, with the windows down and a hand in the wind. 

The Lonely Fighter are Claire Wyndham and Chris Roberts. 

Claire’s musical travels have taken her all over the map. Literally. Australian born and raised, after graduating high school she spent a few years traveling all over the world with nothing but a guitar and a backpack before eventually landing in Nashville, TN.  A multi-instrumentalist, she spent time writing country songs and working with other artists for their projects, even touring as guitarist for a major artist, before feeling free enough to come back to her familiar process, forgetting genre, forgetting rules, and just writing and singing what was true to her. What was real. Claire is no stranger to telling a story. Though her songwriting craft has been influenced by living in the country music capital, you'll never hear the twang of a banjo or fiddle. Instead, her music ranges from dark, driving, epic tracks, to beautiful ethereal ballads. She never shies away from telling it like it is. Her lyrics are at times, heart wrenching and vulnerable. At times, empowered and strong.  Her beautifully crafted songs are delivered by buttery vocals that can make you feel like she’s whispering her darkest secrets in your ear, or yelling her anger across a crowded room.

Chris Roberts is as humorous as he is musically talented! His zest for life is contagious and you just feel good being around him. He is a respected songwriter amongst his peers and you'd be hard pressed to find someone on Music Row who doesn't have a fond memory of a time spent with him.  In April 2020, Chris released a critically-acclaimed bluegrass album, Mountain Standard Time, followed in June of 2020 with a second music release in the form of an EP called All The Right Songs . He's gotten cuts for the likes of Julie Roberts, Ashley McBryde, Love and Theft and The Swon Brothers, had songs placed on ABC and CMT's Nashville and a couple of other television shows. Roberts has even placed music in film. Chris has shared the stage with artists such as Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffet, Dave Mathews and Neil Young. He has appeared on Broadway in several productions and was part of the vocal trio One Flew South which signed a record deal with Decca/Universal Records and a publishing deal with Sony/ATV. Their songs have been praised in the music industry as unparalleled and the single "My Kind of Beautiful" climbed the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
