The 23-year-old Montrealer is a versatile and devoted musician. Wrapped in a rich pop sound, Black For You offers a counter-melody that is brilliantly performed by a string trio. The song was first written and recorded on a laptop while Christian was living in São Paulo, Brazil. It passed through a total of six different versions and was recorded in five different studios around Quebec before being completed at Montreal's Planet Studios in 2017, explains the artist.
Black For You is a song about the messiness of conflicting egos in the aftermath of a breakup. When communication has failed and the fire has died, and when the hearts are all black and covered with ashes, sometimes the only thing left to do is walk away, confides Christian. In the end, it’s about realizing that some things just aren’t meant to be, and that it’s nobody's fault.
Born from a musical family where intricate harmonies, multi-instrumental virtuosity and late night jams were commonplace, Christian began playing drums, guitar, keyboard and bass, and developing a distinctive voice at a time when most other boys his age would have rather been playing video games or little league soccer. Following a trip to Brazil, he contributed to multiple projects on the Montreal indie music scene, including the band Mango Mango. Since 2016, he has joined Aliocha on stage and focused on his own solo project.
