When we talked to Chris about the video for the song (below), we wanted to learn more about the concept and our favorite part — when he is being pushed around the city in his couch.
Chris explained, “The director actually came up with the concept; we wanted a simple video that shows me in a personal, guy next door way and also a few comedic touches didn’t hurt.”
He added about his songwriting, “All of my songs draw from my personal experiences or the way I feel about something because I want people to be able to visualize what I see and hopefully I can make them feel a certain way or they can relate to me.”
Chris is currently balancing life as an indie musician while also attending school. We wanted to know how he finds time to pursue both…
“Its a challenge at times but I prioritize and try not to procrastinate, that’s how I manage to get things done. I’m an accounting major which is a lot of homework but I’ve had some time conflicts. So far everything is going well and I plan on graduating.”
