Christian Gates, also known as "The Philharmonik" is one of the best young musicians Sacramento has to offer. At just 25, he already has a mixtape and has recently released his first album, self-titled "The Philharmonik". Christian discusses his influences in music growing up, social issues in Sacramento, and the inspiration behind each song in the album.
As a writer, producer, audio engineer, and performer, "The Philharmonik" has the swiss-army knife skill set in the music industry. Many of the tones hearken back to a nostalgia of the 80s and 90s while also maintaining a modern feel. Not only is he big in Sacramento, but his music has over 19,000 streams a month on Spotify world-wide.
