We had the good fortune of connecting with Christian Kariuki and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Christian, what principle do you value most?
Consistency. Life is about nothing more than repitition

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I treat my art as an extension of myself. I feel like by simply listening to my music and paying attention to the many details i throw in, you could learn everything you ever need to know about me. I got to where I am to day by simply doing what i love. I dont feel like i work insanely hard because making music never feels like a job to me. Sure there are slumps here and there but i would never feel as if i’m being drained to make it. During my journey I’ve learned to let go of external opinion, and create what I love, and the rest will follow

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Everytime i come back to the H i gotta stop at the waffle bus! Houston got nothing but amazing food spots all over and cool places to hang out all over montrose and downtown

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My Girlfriend and fellow LORDS for always placing their full belief in me
