Carl Christensen is an american composer/songwriter who has aims to blur the lines between rock music and classical music. Christensen's 2019 release, "Double Decades" displays his talents as a songwriter, composer, and lyricist, earning the adoration of a small but extremely dedicated fan base. Influences range from Sufjan Stevens & Philip Glass to The Front Bottoms & Bruce Springsteen. Emphasizing story telling in his music, Christensen said in an interview, "I spend as much time on the lyrics as I do any other part of the piece. Wacky chords and cool time signatures are nice and all, but at the end of the day if you're not using those things to say anything, whats the point? Words are normally the best form of communication. All that cool music-school sh*t's just icing on the cake."
