About Christopher


 

The origins of Christopher's songwriting begin in 1995 when he taught himself how to play acoustic guitar and developed lyrics modified from his poetry. Playing at small parties with friends became a favourite hobby. In 2000 he went electric, and in 2001 he began experimenting with sound engineering. In these formative years, every opportunity was taken to play with different musicians in different genres from rock to blues to hiphop.

Since then, Christopher’s prolific background with rock music has yielded stage experience, starting with the Veteran Cosmic Rockers (from southern Pennsylvania, USA) and continuing with Modern Hunter Gatherer (in Lugano, Switzerland). Currently Christopher is working a solo project and continuing a duo with artist Ares Arm. In his spare time he enjoys working with Grow Studio Records (Balerna Switzerland).

Besides music, any other free time is spent organising social events, traveling or spending time in the Alps. He find new inspiration by meeting new people, sharing ideas and experiencing different cultures.

“In the past few years my life has moved from stability to chaos, from order to freedom, from thought to action. Now I find myself in the midst of an incredible adventure spread across the world. All limits have been stretched.  Impossibilities have been debunked.  Finding new opportunities to exercise skills and develop new ones, every day is a new experience.”
