Instead of writing songs about romantic deep cuts or relationship breakups, he decided to write from what he knows, his life as a geek. “Dragon, fly” is a song he wrote while dealing with the passing of iconic Power Rangers actor Jason David Frank, who he became good friends with throughout the course of his YouTube career. The song tells a story of hurt and isolation but gives room for hope and passion for life.

Everything you hear is recorded by Chris, with the exception of a guitar track performed by longtime friend and music video director Adrian Arcega. The song was recorded and mixed at Crow’s Nest Studio, owned by one of the top musicians of the country, Audry Dionisio and Ely Buendia.
