Review Fix: What was the creative process of this album?
Christian O: Derived directly from my poems and experiences traveling, every track is a piece of the story. It’s all been very organic, each day has been so unique in how we create — sometimes a poem is the starting point, sometimes the track is — no day is the same, that’s for sure.
Review Fix: What kind of music did you grow up on? How did it influence you?
Christian O: Everything from Red Hot Chili Peppers to Aaliyah played in my house, so I grew up listening to just about every genre of music and every sound inspired my every move. Each genre has something special that speaks to a different part of your soul, I pull from all of them.
Review Fix: How was “Better Than You” written?
Christian O: “Better Than You” is all about self-empowerment and the struggles we all experience in relationships. A feel-good break up song that reminds us that sometimes there’s something better ahead than what we leave behind.
Review Fix: How is the sound different from your previous work?
Christian O: I definitely feel it’s more reflective of who I am as a person, and even added some rock influences on a couple of tracks like “Only Friend.” It’s nice to get a little selfish with your sound, I’ve been doing that a lot lately, experimenting more.
Review Fix: Bottom line, why should someone check out this EP?
Christian O: I like how the EP has a song for just about every mood, while giving you a taste of EDM, pop, R&B, rock, and some old school vibes. It literally has “A Little Bit Of Everything.”
Review Fix: What’s next?
Christian O: Already in the studio recording my first studio album and starting production on the “Wild Kids” music video.
