We’ve been playing out Christopher the Grey’s current track Sunrise here on Phoenix FM – and caught up with him to have a chat about his life and music.
Hi Christopher the Grey! Tell us a little bit about your yourself?
Hello! In short, I am guy from Alabama that loves music, loves creating music and loves sharing it. Other than that, I am just your normal guy that loves old cars and sports.
When did you first start to develop a passion for music?
My passion for music began early. I was in the school band, my parents loved music and singing so it grew from there.
Which artists did you listen to while growing up?
Wow! So many … my father had everything. Artists that I can distinctly remember include The O’Jays, Taste of Honey and Isaac Hayes to name a few.
How would you describe your music to someone who hasn’t heard you before?
I would describe it as reality and truth driven music. It’s based on my experiences. It’s a different sound. It’s influenced by the past and present.
What music have you recorded and released to date?
Not So Common is my second EP which Sun Rise was on. There are 5 songs on it. The first EP was released in 2016 under the name SIRHC and had 2 songs.
Prior to that I produced and wrote for an artist on my label.
Which artists do you enjoy listening to at the moment – and do they influence your work?
I like listening to Bryce Vine, BoB, and Travis Scott. Yes! I am always listening and learning something from different artists.
Who would your dream collaboration be with?
If I had to pick one artist, it would be BoB.
What are your plans for the future?
Plans are to continue to grow as an artist, release more music and play some fun shows. I am currently working on the next release.
