Chris Nĕptūn is one of New Jersey's edgiest alternative artists on the rise. Before his debut as a solo artist, Nĕptūn was the front man of the ska band Exit 145, that he helped to form with his close friends in high school, as well as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist of the band Epic City, that he joined during his college years. He contributed catchy originals to both bands during his membership. In addition to writing pop and rock songs since he was in junior high, Nĕptūn composed and donated classical and jazz music to schools and communities for their instrumental and vocal ensembles to perform. He has a passion for vibrant, sophisticated music with lyrics that stimulate the mind and a variety of sounds that stimulate the ears. Nĕptūn proudly records a variety of instruments and vocals on his own, in addition to engineering, mixing, and mastering all recordings himself. He has been persistently treading on various career paths, searching for as many opportunities as possible to inspire others. Nĕptūn embraces not only the image of an all-around musician, but also the image of a well-rounded human being, placing a high value on ethics, fairness, and individualism. He has a vision of a day when all people throughout the world will be seen primarily for their inner qualities, and not be judged by their inherent physical appearance or other things they cannot control; a day when there will be more giving and less taking; a day when we can coexist without fear of one another. Nĕptūn believes that every human being must make the choice to improve themselves in order for there to be a chance for any global improvement, and he believes his music will help influence his listeners to lean towards this virtuous choice. He uses his imaginative and creative skills to communicate his concerns, ideas, hopes, and wishes to the world, and encourages others to do the same, without an ounce of shame.
