Chris grew up below the poverty line in Framingham, MA. At the age of 11, he was placed into the custody of social services along with his sister and two brothers. Later adopted at 14 by his long time foster family - the Borelli's, Chris began to interpret his life from an entirely different perspective. With the Borelli's, he discovered his love for music by practicing piano and singing on a regular basis. Supported by a loving adoptive family, Chris decided that music was his calling. 

For all of his adolescent and teen years, Chris was solely a singer-songwriter. His piano and singing skills were sharp at a young age. He performed original songs, sang in choirs, and participated in local singing competitions.

It wasn't until he was 18 when Chris discovered his abilities in hip hop. He began writing verses and simultaneously building his production skills as an undergrad at Stonehill College. It was in college where Chris discovered his voice in rap music and crafted his energetic stage presence. His abilities strengthened quickly as he was able to apply his classical knowledge of music into his style of rap. 

His lyrics are raw and direct. His messages are confidently delivered. His content is pure, honest and relatable.

Chris has performed on various stages among several different platforms. He's been invited to the Vans Warped Tour in the summer of 2012 - invited back the following year. Performed for college audiences such as UMass, Boston College, Northeastern University and many others. He's opened for T-Pain, Joyner Lucas, Waka Flocka, Andy Grammer, Cobra Starship, George Watsky, Hermitude, TroyBoi and several others. 

At 27, Chris has acquired a moderate fan base and continues to perform and release various projects. His latest EP, "Guts," is now available on all major streaming platforms.
