Chris and I took a walk down to a nice viewpoint while we chatted about almost everything. One of those topics was warm vs. cold showers. Fun fact, it’s been just over one and a half years since Chris has taken a warm shower – cold shower team, let’s go!
As we talked inspiration and touring life, I learned that Chris is one of the most raw and real artists I’ve had the pleasure to meet. He isn’t afraid to speak what’s on his mind and give thoughtful answers. While asking him if the tour life is the right decision for someone looking to move in the same direction he is, I was told “of course. If you have the opportunity to experience something like that for a portion of your life and you feel you are ready – do it.”
When What So Not was first created it was Emoh Instead (Chris) and Flume. The two of them were collaborating together under the name “What So Not” and quickly they progressed to the point of full time touring and gigs. After two plus years of What So Not (the duo) the two decided to part ways due to creative differences. Both believe that it was the best decision. They let the world know by posting a Facebook status on their page explaining that What So Not was splitting up, and of course they made that post on the date of my birthday. What a sad birthday gift!
