Building on the momentum of being crowned CO-WINNER of the inaugural RANDY JACKSON, BABYFACE, KENNY G & WALTER AFANASIEFF talent competition, ISINA- in addition to WINNING the HOLLYWOOD MUSIC IN MEDIA AWARD for BEST MESSAGE SONG/SOCIAL IMPACT in 2018 - Los Angeles Singer, Songwriter, Performer & upcoming Author, CRIS GUNTHER a.k.a C-GUN kicked off 2023 with a resounding bang releasing the cinematically soaring & redemption-themed Rock ballad, "DESERT BLOOM", in conjunction with the more Euro Pop-EDM dance floor banger & accompanying house club remix, "I WANT MORE"- and is now continuing the launch of his most ambitious album to date, C-GUN'S BEATIFIC: THE WEDDING OF HEAVEN AND HELL VOL. 1, with the Pop-Funk gem, "BREAKING CURSES #RESISTA", on AUGUST 11th.
One of the most interesting bits setting "BREAKING CURSES #RESISTA" worlds apart from all of the other songs that we've heard so far in 2023 is the still novel usage of Brazilian Portuguese lyrics internationally, despite how trendy it's been with so many Spanglish songs burning up the charts over the last few years. And, another standout that makes "BREAKING CURSES #RESISTA" so compelling is not only its Latin-inspired Dance/Rap Breakdown and post-pandemic revolutionary lyrical messaging, but there are just enough hints of aggressive Rock Gods like KINGS OF LEON & RAG'N'BONE MAN stirred with the synthy-lusty darkness of THE WEEKND to truly make this a musical wonder.
CRIS GUNTHER's had notable song features in MADONNA's social justice initiative, ART-FOR-FREEDOM (the released track, "NEVER GIVE UP")- and in JARED LETO's CARRERA EYEWEAR #MAVERICK digital campaign (the soon-to-be-released, "204").
