Christopher Guard has been writing songs since he was a boy; he wrote songs and music for C4’s award-winning Pond Life and won the Brit Foundation UK Song-Writing contest Rock category with Attention Deficit Girl. His songs have been played on BBC daytime Radio as well as many international indie stations.

Leapfrogtown, Guard’s London-based band, were formed in 2013 and quickly amassed a fan-base. Their debut album Dreaming in Public received rave reviews.

What the Fox are a reincarnation of Leapfrogtown. They’ve gigged as a duo, a trio and recently as a full band to a sell-out crowd at the wondrous Half Moon, Putney, followed by a vibey night at the Mau Mau Bar, Portobello Road. In October they’ll be headlining the famous Troubadour in London.

Chris has worked with some great musicians and producers including Pat Collier (The Wonderstuff),  drummers Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello) and Charlie Morgan (Elton John); as well as the genius that is Stephen Sondheim who remarked that Chris was the only one in the room with natural rhythm! Chris is currently writing songs and music for the controversial new movie ‘Mercy’.
