In 2017 Gollon made his first appearance as a solo artist, and continued to appear in Palm Coast and surrounding cities at house shows and at larger local venues like Sarbez in St. Augustine and The Cinematique in Daytona Beach. In a local scene that consisted primarily of punk and hard rock, Gollon soon carved a niche as one of the only mainly acoustic artists associated with the Rugrat Records organization, an indie music group based out of Palm Coast.
In 2019 Gollon further built a stronghold in Flagler County with continued live performances. The following June, Gollon’s first EP “Winter” released on streaming platforms to critical acclaim.
Felipe Sanchez, guitarist in Slaves: “Chris’ music is focused on the message. Whatever music he puts out will always fall back on the words that he’s singing and reaching a very real place within all of us. It reminds me of the reason why I turned to music as a safe haven in the first place.”
Andrew Crawford, guitarist in Light Pollution: “For as long as I've known Chris and listened to his work, he's always had a recondite ability to create earworms and pleasant melodies, almost effortlessly.”
