Chris Cheney Career

Music career

Cheney first met Scott Owen at Jells Park Primary School in 1992, when the Runaway Boys, a Melbourne band, began their careers together, and Cheney named them Runaway Boys, which Cheney cites as one of his favorites. The group was a covers band performing Stray Cats and The Clash songs. The group's first paying gig was at the Richmond Club Hotel in 1992, and they followed it with a stay at the nearby Corner Hotel. Shane and Grant, the first two guys, were high school with us and weren't particularly into 1950s rock'n'roll. We were certainly a bit pushed at that point. Grant was keen to participate in classes, but when high school ended, he was excited to move forward and go to university." Even though Cheney appeared on guitar in another band, Goodbye Sideburns Forever, although he was not affiliated with them.

The Runaway Boys were Cheney and Owen on piano and bass. The pair began to write their own stories in 1994 and were joined by Joe Piripitzi on drums to create The Living End. Hellbound (1995) and It's for Your Own Good (November 1996), both extended plays, and "From Here to In" became their first radio single. Cheney and Owen co-authored the song. The Living End sent their second EP to the band and helped them on their tour, which culminated in the band's debut on radio station Triple J. Travis Demsey replaced Piripitzi on drums late last year. The Living End, a third EP, Second Solution / Prisoner of Society, was released in September 1997, with four of its five tracks written by Cheney. The EP reached its high point of No. 1. ARIA Singles Chart 4 is ranked No. 4 on the ARIA Singles Chart. It was the highest-selling Australian-made single for the 1990s.

They debuted their debut self-titled album on October 12, 1998, which debuted at No. 1 in the United States. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart. It contained the singles "Save the Day" (September 1998), "Prisoner of Society" (September 1999), and "All Torn Down" (September 1999). They have since been recognised around the world, including the Warped Tour in the United States and Reading and Leeds Festivals in the United Kingdom, and the Reading and Leeds Festivals in the United Kingdom. "Pictures in the Mirror," (2000), "One Said to the Other" (2004), "What's on Your Radio" (2001), and "Wake Up" (2006). Cheney wrote the company's other top 20 hits, "Pictures in the Mirror" (2001).

Cheney told his fellow members of The Living End on October 7, 2006, that he wanted to leave the band. "He found himself dealing with a personal and creative crisis for the first time." However, the tragedy was over and Cheney resurfaced, and she began writing again. The group successfully tested the new tracks in February 2008, under the pseudonym Longnecks. "White Noise" was The Living End's second top 20 single in July. Later that month, the same album was released. They launched The Ending Is Just the Beginning Repeating, their sixth studio album, on July 22, 2011, peaking at No. 121. 3.

Cheney's debut solo album, Storm Before The Calmation, will be released on June 17th. Alongside the announcement, its lead single "California" and its film clip directed by Nick McKinlay were announced. Cheney's "Football Team" would be released as the album's second single. Cheney performed in Australia on June 2nd in support of his debut album, as well as the third single "Corner Shop" with a film clip directed by Sean McDonald.

They performed the entire three-minute track at the WaveAid charity benefit concert in January and then released it as a single in February. The Wrights revived for another 'one-off' charity benefit concert, Roosistance, to perform "We Can't Be Beaten" – first by Rose Tattoo.

Cheney performed a duet with Sarah McLeod (ex-The Superjesus) on her second solo single, "Private School Kid," in July 2005. On December 17th, he appeared on stage at the Docklands Stadium (Telstra Dome) for the season's "I Fought the Law" event. Although Cheney was not the Green Day bunny as had been rumored, it was Tré Cool, drummer for Green Day. Cheney appeared on SBS-TV's celebrity music trivia show, RocKwiz, with former Divinyls lead singer Chrissy Amphlett. He appeared in another super group, The Wrongs, at the 2006 Jack Awards. As a tribute to Peter Wells, the band's guitarist, they performed "Bad Boy for Love" on Rose Tattoo.

Cheney made a guest appearance on stage with the Stray Cats on their Australian Farewell Tour in February 2009. He performed four songs with his childhood heroes, Brian Setzer, Lee Rocker, and Slim Jim Phantom. Cheney performed in a number of concerts around Australia in August that year, along with Tim Rogers (You Am I), Jamieson (Grinspoon), and Josh Pyke to commemorate The Beatles' White Album in its entirety.

Celadore, a Melbourne indie rock band, first worked as a record producer, on their album, The Bright and Blue, in October 2011. Cheney appeared on RocKwiz Orkestra for the second time in October and then "Stumblin' In" as a duet with Quatro.

On the spring tour of "Me First and the Gimme Gimmes," Cheney substituted for Chris Shiflett.

Cheney contributed "I Won't Let You Down" to Jimmy Barnes' 2019 album, My Criminal Record. "I Won't Let You Down" was the album's third single on September 6, 2019. Jimmy Barnes and Slim Jim Phantom formed a rockabilly band in 2021.

Operation Underground Railroad, the anti-trafficking group he founded in 2013, is being sued for allegedly sexually assaulting, assaulted, and harassed at least five people on international relations. Ballard provided budding female operatives lap dances and even plied his own son with drugs along the 5-mile stretch of gentlemen's clubs, 'Sin Lake City,' according to the story, while disguised as his alter ego, 'Brian.' Ballard's male 'partners' were encouraged to 'train' his female 'partners', with one of them referring to it as a "mega adult club."
