We had the good fortune of connecting with Christopher Frank and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Christopher, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I chose to pursue an artistic creative career path because I knew that music is my passion when i was a teenager. I originally thought that I’d never work a 9-5 and just blow up off music but it didn’t go that way. However after i turned 25 started working for myself fulltime and it has been a blast since. 

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Wow where to start? My business/ brand is Simply Groovy. It’s a recording label, clothing line, and DJ Service. Sometime life takes us for a twirl and a whirl but i strive to remind people to breath and not to sweat the small things, and life will be Simply Groovy. I’ve honestly just continued to follow my dreams. I have a lot of dear friends i have met through the years who continue to support me and my endeavors. I wouldn’t say it’s been easy nor hard but one beautiful awesome adventure.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Duuuude. If we’re talkin food. I know a groovy of yummy spots. I love Ethiopian food, so we’d hit Gojo Restaurant in Phoenix. Two hippies beach house is a delicious spot aswell. For drinks, the Churchill is a dope spot aswell as Gracie’s tax bar, Cobra Arcade bar, and Crescent Ballroom. We would definitely hit up Desert West Skatepark and Hermoso Skatepark. We would def have to hang out wit my VibeLane & Brunch collect fam, it’s always nothing but pure laughs and a groovy time.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Shout out to my moms & dad for always believing in me and encouraging me. Shout out to my super supportive family. Shout out to my Vibe Lane & Brunch Collect brethren. Shout out my girlfriend Keanna. And shout out to all the beautiful people who continue groove with me ✨🍍
