'A poet turned musician - or, perhaps, the opposite, Christian Wethered is a delicate, slow-burning artist who explores life through his lens, with subtle songwriting and poetic lyrics.' - James Hendicott (Goldenplec, NME, Dublin Live)

Christian Wethered [pron. wether-red’] is a poet and songwriter based in Dublin. His debut E.P, ‘Mon Petit Jardin’, is forthcoming.
