Despite being born in the heart of Tyler, Texas; after relocating as a child it would be the city of Houston that vocalist Christopher DeShun Ward would call home. Taking an interest in music at an early age, his path would temporarily be delayed after being incarcerated at just 21-years-old. Using the ordeal for personal motivation, at 22 he would emerge a more mature artist; vowing to take back control of his career.
Focusing on songwriting and recording, in 2011 Shun Ward would release his debut EP, The Prelude to Shun Ward City, paving his path into the industry. Collaborating with a number of producers overseas, he followed up with “What’s Your Name,” his first EDM track. Initially released in Italy, the single proved that he could make his mark abroad and still gain spins back home.
