From Romford Essex:

CHRIS HATWELL

aged 20yrs full time student performs classical and spanish guitar and performs on piano. He also writes his own compositions and has worked his way up from a working class background gaining music scholarships into top London Music Conservatoire TRINITY LABAN.
Chris also won a National Competition to compose JACK PETCHEY ANTHEM, he was 16 at the time beating off stiff competition from around the country.

NICK ENGEL:

aged 31yrs, Guitarist. He has worked with music again since his childhood for pleasure and for employment. He has performed in many gigs and venues and also composes various peices of his own work. Nick collaborates with Chris and thats how NIRIS was formed.
He now gives back to those younger than himself working as a music teacher in various local schools.

Newest member MAREK

aged 19yrs: Guitarist. Another great performer with great promise and lots to offer who again enjoys performing to the public giving enjoyment to those around. He too has worked his way up in music since childhood.
All three came together at their work place MUSIC LAND which is a local shop in ROMFORD ESSEX. There they serve, assist with customers and perform when required. They also maintain and mend instruments for the general public.

NIRIS would love the opportunity to perform in your London restaurants and share their love of music with your guests.
They would also love the opportinity to meet Gordan Ramsay in person and show what they can offer with the opportinity to grow even further.

Is this at all possible?

NIRIS are on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. They have quite a big following considering they haven't uploaded majority of their performances and compositions. This is something they aim to focus on so to share with the community online.

NIRIS have performed in local restaurants/venues and would now like to see if the much bigger elite venues/restaurants will give them a chance to share their music with their diners and guests.

Niris released in September and their single, Dance With Me reached over 57,000 hits on Youtube, ill leave the link below,

We are released another single this December, a revamp of Elvis' Blue Christmas and had media interviews lined up such as This Morning and London Live

Nick Engel and I (Chris Hatwell) are an instrumental duo, performing Spanish Guitar, Ambient music, Blues and Jazz

Nick Engel is a versatile yet classically trained guitarist who has been gigging on the London music scene for many years. After studying music and forming a band at college, he went on to perform at venues around London and also with the Occupy London underground scene, performing original funk/rock/rap tracks and also working alot as a 'jam band.'

He moved more toward the acoustic guitar scene after being asked to perform with renowned modern acoustic player Stuart Masters. After a few years gigging together at venues including the Camden Barfly and The Borderline, they disbanded to work on solo projects.

Nick went on to do session work with various vocalists ranging from pop to soul, and performed lounge jazz regularly at restaurants, before being asked to sit in as resident guitarist at an East London hip hop night. Here he got into live sampling which he started to use regularly, creating beats and self producing 2 trip hop LPs. He also began solo performances, supporting groups such as Bobby Harrison's SNAFU, blending Latin Jazz standards and traditional Spanish guitar pieces with loops and improvisation. He and Myself met at a local music store and jammed together on a few tracks, and then decided to form Niris.

In early 2012, I had the privilege to meet Milos face to face,
During which my Grandad was a big admire and a huge influence through my music,
I attended Trinity Laban for 9/10 years achieving my Grade 8 in both Classical Guitar and Piano with support through AYM for a number of years and helped me greatly!

I have a fairly growing fanbase on Instagram, 22K, I'll leave the latest Video just below
