Violently Free is Christopher D. Hillsgrove, it began as a composition of poems that gradually morphed into songs (rough demos). Within each song there are elements of the artist and bands that influenced me as a person and a musician. Bands such as brand new, taking back sunday, hum, neutral milk hotel, vision of disorder, machinehead, at the drivin, social distortion, pixies, nirvana, slipknot, dropkick murphy's, flogging molly, joy division, iggy pop, modest mouse, the honorary title, deftones, manchester orchestra, rancid, mars volta, blink 182, and violent femmes. As a song writer I try to convey complex social and life issues into a simple metaphor. I always thought there is something to be said about a simple catchy song that people can take something from.
