Originally from Cincinnati Ohio, Chris X was a nick name obtained in high school and later became Chris X's artist name. Chris X got started in music during a state emergency blizzard in Oklahoma City, OK in December of 2008. He was shut off from the world for a little under 2 weeks. No internet. No cable. His possessions still being shipped to him from having just moved. He had no TV, games or any outlet for much of any entertainment, and literally no one around he knew. To cold to go outside, he was forced to stay in his apartment that consisted of only one room. Isolation like this can make you hallucinate and lose your mind. Out of pure boredom he opened up Garage Band on his laptop he had purchased days earlier and wrote his first song. He has never looked back, and has evolved more as an artist everyday. At the time it was a very horrible 2 weeks of his life, but what was born out of the ashes made it all worth it. Sometimes the best things can come out of the worst situations.
