“It is crucial as an artist to continue to experiment and push yourself outside your comfort zone, both in process and perspective. You have to be willing to fail in order to grow,” notes Chris. “For this EP, I wanted to take all things I have learned from the folk singer songwriter side of music and experiment with the sounds and beats of alternative pop. The entire process was incredibly inspiring. Until now, I hadn’t put any guitar solos on recorded material, and I really connected with combining the mismatch of heavy hip hop beats with wailing guitar.”
