Bio

Christopher Dillon Micha has been a performer since the tender young age of 7. His very first stage performance was singing in the chorus of a SI Childrens' Theater production of "The Wizard of Oz" as a member of the Lolipop guilld. Throughout middle school and High School (8 years) he was a bass and tenor for the Poly Prep Glee Club. He travelled abroad to sing at Oxford's Cathedral, Manchester, and at venues in Copenhagen and Roskilde in Denmark. The choir sang traditional music from the American songwriters cannon, like Aaron Copeland and Irving Berlin. They also performed classical selections; Mozart, Brahhms, and Handel were just a few. He also joined the Harvard Glee Club, as a guest to perform Carl Orff's "Carmina Burana".

In college, Christopher began to come into his own as a contemporary rock singer and played the Amherst MA college circuit with a cover band with the moniker "Kill The Rabbit".

At 19, he moved back to Staten Island and auditioned for a ragtag outfit that called themselves "Das Phrogge" (pronounced 'frog'). Under Christopher's command, that band tightened up and went on to perform all over the tri state area, in just about every major venue there is. The band recorded two self distrubuted ep's at Daiichi Kosho studios in the Ed Sullivan Theater building, before recording the full length album called "Body & Mind" which was recorded and produced by Ron Thal, aka "Bumblefoot". The album continues to sell, available at CDBaby, and itunes, and is available for play at Rhapsody.com, and lastfm.com. Das Phrogge supported national acts such as The Goo Goo Dolls, Jason Bonham, From Good Homes, The Spin Doctors, Reid Paley, Freedy Johnston, The Maja Vishnu Orchestra, and many many others.

Throughout those 10 years, Christopher cultivated his skills, and recorded two acoustic collections, "posthumous", and "requiem for the unfound man". Das Phrogge disbanded in 2005. Later that year Christopher formed the band "Zero Charisma" along with members of Phrogge. They played their first show to a sold out capacity crowd at New York City's Knitting Factory. The band signed a promotional contract with IAR records and released the song "Letterbox" on the IAR Emerging Artists compilation CD, in 2006. The band was a finalist in the 2007 Bodog Band search, playing a sold out show that was taped for broadcast on FuseTV, at Irving Plaza in NYC. Zero Charisma disbanded in 2010.
