Christopher Lord

Leeds-based copywriter & music journalist

United Kingdom

It's a bit like that feeling when you walk out of the cinema. Writing should inspire, inform and tap into our emotions. That applies whether you're selling meal deals and drum kits, or interviewing rock stars and Golden Globe winners. And I've done the lot.

I've written copy for national news outlets, international magazines, regional publications and a growing number of companies – both B2B & B2C. As a result, I've developed a truly versatile style that can be adapted for just about any purpose or audience. When I'm not writing for work, I'm writing for leisure, simply because it's what makes me tick.

When you work with me, you can be certain that I approach every brief with the same passion and enthusiasm that you have for your project or business. I've gathered some of my favourite pieces of writing here to demonstrate what I can do. Have a flick through my CV for a clearer picture of my skills and experience, too.

10 Signature Snare Drums Worth the Investment

Allow us to indulge in a little metaphor. If the bass drum is a drum kit's engine, then you might say the snare drum is its battery. While the bass thuds away, preserving that all-important rhythmic spine, the snare crackles and ignites. Sparks flying with every strike.
