about

In late 2013, Chris had his prized Telecaster stolen after a night of gigging. News of his misfortune made it all the way to Boston, Massachusetts and soon after Chris received an impossibly generous gift from an acclaimed blues musician; a guitar with an uncanny likeness to his stolen Telecaster, emblazoned with the custom decal 'Tele-Porter'.

It was with this guitar that Chris wrote and recorded an album which teleports the listener to an era when great records captured the spontaneity and energy of passionate, live performances.

Drawing from the deep well of American roots music, the Chris Armour Quartet offer up a dynamic and incendiary instrumental album.

Live, unfiltered and exuberant. Tele-Porter is the blues.

"This is a terrific album by a killer band. Great grooves, imagination, touch, taste, and tone abound." - Tom Hyslop, Music Journalist

"I’ve been watching Chris Armour grow-up as a guitarist since about 2008. His debut album Tele-Porter is a world-class instrumental Jump Blues album. Toneful, tuneful, and swinging like a bitch thanks to the chef of the shuffle, Richard Te One on drums, and Steve Moodie on bass." - NZ blues legend Darren Watson
