Biography

“We are from louisville, kentucky by way of winstonsalem, north carolina. we enjoy pizza, dinosaurs, and reality television. we like listening to music and playing nintendo wii. we like moe's quesadillas, cookout's hushpuppies, and mathematical economics. we generally dislike the third-person. we recently gave up most high-fructose corn syrup, although it was replaced with pink cookies. we sleep late. we [just graduated] college. we made some shirts with kittens on them. we used to play a bunch of covers under the name "bristopher crowder". we like playing shows with our friends. we like dancing to rap. we don't like the way most musicians talk about themselves and their music. we generally don't enjoy self-promotion. we are one guy, literally.”

...After hearing Mansions, Conway [Doghouse Records A&R] drove eight hours to meet him and to ask him to join the label; "I popped in homemade recordings of this thing called Mansions, not expecting much," said Conway. "Next thing I knew I found myself driving eight hours to Kentucky to meet up with Christopher and knew right away I wanted to do this project with him."

Christopher, a Kentucky native, sought outside the local musicians of his town and grew up instead on the music of Nick Drake, The Get Up Kids, Ryan Adams, Elliott Smith and Nirvana. With this musical background he was joined by Producer Mike Sapone (Brand New, Public Enemy, and Taking Back Sunday) in Long Island, NY where he worked on tracks for the upcoming self-titled EP , along with the upcoming full-length New Best Friends out this Fall.
