Everyone has a story. But when 21-year-old Minneapolis, Minnesota-bred singer/songwriter/producer Chrishan breaks pen to paper you can tell, something is very different about him. There are no club anthems, no dance crazes, no songs about fancy lifestyles—just his gritty, unedited, uncut take on life, love, and relationships.
At age 14, Chrishan was a musical prodigy. He ran studio sessions while running for class president, performed at local venues til' early hours on school nights, meanwhile teaching himself how to play piano & guitar. At age 17, Chrishan's first single "2 Late 4 Us" went #1 on Amazon, selling 10,000+ units independently. After enrolling at Concordia University in January 2009, and breaking up with his girlfriend of 4 years Chrishan locked himself in his dorm room day after day, where he ended up writing & producing his debut album later entitled Night & Day.
In July 2009 Chrishan released his first single off the album, "Bitch Look At Me Now," a uncanny story about his ex-girlfriend who had taken him for granted. The single became an international hit, gaining the attention of many label executives. He later went on to release his first mixtape "I Am: Chrishan The Prince," and the album Night & Day was released December 22, 2009.
Since the release of his album Chrishan has been on a climactic rise to fame, performing sold out shows across the country with the likes of Day 26, Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy & more. He has been currently writing & producing for several major artists including multiple sessions with Atlantic Records. When not in class Chrishan is hard at work writing & producing his sophomore album entitled Night & Day: Platinum. His mixtape Man Of The Year hosted by DJ Ill Will & DJ Rockstar features production by Tha Bizness (Drake-Every Girl), KE On The Track (Roscoe Dash-All The Way Turnt Up), Neenyo (Drake-Must Hate Money) and guest appearances by Kyle Christopher, Chris King & Marcel of 2M3, J Watts & more.
With a updated touring schedule that includes the Target Center in Minneapolis, Chrishan (currently a biology/pre-med major) is still determined on pursuing a college degree (which he claims is just so his mom will shut up). "Sorry Mom!"
