Christien was not adverse to discipline, freelancing as a consultant, becoming accomplished in the martial arts and, at the same time, making great inroads with his music. Now, creeping into his thirties, the bar has been moved. Music is now the defining factor in his life. Possessions are being shed, passports are being updated, songs are being written and gigs are being booked. Southern Ontario is no longer the focus, the world is.
After months of planning Christien will head to France this summer to set-up a satellite music base in Europe which he hopes will gradually radiate out to other European countries. The honesty in his music is also evident in the series of Vlogs he has started which chronicle his life.
With his possessions now being able to fit in a car, as opposed to a downtown condo, Christien is setting out on a journey few musicians dare dream about. Armed with a guitar, ukulele, harmonica and a stomp box his music is equally as sparse and draws comparisons to early Ben Harper and Damien Rice.
