Christopher Arruda

Having spent his late teens and early twenties fronting popular funk-rock band "The Lady Esther" and the ambitious post-rock outfit "Open, parachute!", the twenty-five year old artist has returned with a renewed sense of passion, drive and love for the music he creates. His performances are bold and varied. One moment a boistrous shout, the next a soft whisper, Christopher strives to connect with the audience through unbridled fervor and a captivating presence. Influenced by the likes of Thom Yorke, Sufjan Stevens, Rachel Yamagata and Sarah Slean, his sound strikes a chord somewhere between pop, rock and folk music but his only goal is to create inspiring soundscapes that are honest and true.

Christopher has recently started booking shows in anticipation of his forthcoming record God Hates a Coward. "To me, this is a record about hope - about abandoning a fear of failure and finding beauty in life, even in the struggle. It's about stepping over the edge, taking chances and being able to have faith that you'll be better for it". Recorded in Victoria, B.C. over the spring and summer the record is slated for an October 2009 release.

Christopher has been fortunate enough to share the stage with such artists as Thrice, Tegan and Sarah, Holly McNarland, Hey Ocean!, Maurice, Classified and Theset. He is available for interviews, on-air performances and all general media inquiries.
