While many may know Christian by his unique and memorable performances in and around numerous Western Canadian bars, coffee shops, film festivals, campuses and galas, others seem to know him by his philanthropy. This talented young man recently won the prestigious Stampede Talent Show (past contestants Kiesza and Paul Brandt). What was surprising to many was that he took his prize money of ten thousand dollars and donated it all to a local drop in centre for the homeless.
He was honored to receive ‘The Spirit of Calgary’ Award at the Vigor Awards and to his amazement a brand new guitar (that he kept) for his kindness that has spread to many of his fans. His talent has caught the ear of some industry heavyweights who are presently working with him in the studio by taking his catchy acoustic songs and producing them with a full band arrangement.
