I'm Topher - an Edmonton (Canada) based singer-songwriter, Japanese-Canadian hafu, and longtime DIY studio enthusiast. 

I'm a passionate performer and songwriter, fusing piano rock, synthpop, EDM, ukulele and hip hop beats, drawing on my own heart-filled emotions and life experiences to make a unique musical alloy: Thoughtful, catchy, slightly smartass pop songs that combines acoustic with electronic. Human and computer. Empty prairie and crowded city streets. Canada and Japan. Heart and mind. 

And, it’s all 100% locally sourced: I'm a DIY devotee, a musician who writes, sings, performs, programs, records, mixes and produces all my own songs, and I'm on a mission to share that empowered approach with others… (when I'm not busy being a single dad jamming with his kids, or subbing in for elementary school choir accompanists, or playing outdoor parties with his roots-rock band Original Six, or founding the DIY School of Music site). So DIY...together... if that makes any sense.

I'm honoured to have the opportunity to share my art with you, and would be so grateful if you are able to help support me in any small way. Doing so not only allows me to keep making music, but it unlocks cool insider goodies that will bring you more intimately into our circle.

I look forward to connecting with you! ありがとう!

- Christopher
