The Sunshine Coast artist returns to Queensland and northern NSW with a number of live shows in August.
With a 2016 that saw Christian tour with Tash Sultana and Boo Seeka, and release a single produced by Flight Facilities' Jimmy2sox, the electronic artist is currently promoting his newest song, 'Can't Get Enough', another collaboration with Jimmy2sox and Brisbane producer Steve Thornely (Georgia Mae).
Christian describes the track as: "Being honest with yourself and others about your dreams and not being held back by peoples opinions. Everyone is chasing something, but will it ever be enough; or is it the right thing for yourself? Do people still care for their passion or anything at all?”
With plenty of recent time spent on the road, Christian shares five things to do when touring.
1. Hanging with your matesGetting heckled by your mates you haven't seen for awhile on stage is always good; them asking you for shout-outs, telling stories from life on the road. Good food with good mates that's what life is about.
2. EatingWhether it be avocado on toast with six-minute eggs or drinking a bulletproof coffee or going to your favourite burger place (Bondi Tony's), it all keeps the tour together and keeps the vibes high.
3. Writing hip hop beatsStopping off along the way, whether it be next to a river or in your mate's room working on beats on the road is good way to capture the vibe.
4. WalkingDoing the morning walk from Bondi to Bronte taking a few pictures along the way while listening to you favourite playlist. No matter where I am I find myself walking a lot; definitely a good way to see new places and chat to some of the locals.
5. Wim Hof methodPractising the Wim Hof method religiously, working on my breathing and cold swims in Bondi Icebergs. Over time, we as humans have developed a different attitude towards nature and we've forgotten about our inner power. This is the ability of our body to adapt to extreme temperature and survive within our natural environment. The Wim Hof method is based on this principle.
