This is the last in our Getting To Know You series here on Roadrunner UK and in this one we hand you over to another of our rising stars, who delivered quite possibly the most entertaining Getting To Know You yet!

Allow us to introduce to you Chris Babbitt, the vocalist from newbies TAKING DAWN. You’re gonna love these guys…

What were you doing when we interrupted you to do this interview?
