With a classically trained background, Christopher grew up studying violin from an early age, and later moved on to guitar, clarinet, saxophone and keyboards before discovering the near unlimited possibilities of electronic music production. As a songwriter and producer he has worked across almost all musical genres and styles with popular artists ranging from Orville Peck, to Ellie Goulding, to Westside Boogie, to Diplo and more. He is also one half of Australian synth-pop/dance music group Bag Raiders which has earned platinum and gold records in multiple countries around the world including the USA, Australia, Germany and more.
Last year he released his first solo record entitled “Music for Growing Plants”. The compositions reflect his explorations into different sonic worlds through both organic and electronic instrumentation.
