Earlier this year, CRi was unsure about what lay in store for the future. But these days he seems fully devoted to making new music. Here’s what he had to say as he gets ready to perform at this year’s Osheaga music festival:

Cri: I’m very glad to be part of this major event I’ll try to do my best to be a good Montreal representative. I can’t wait to play alongside artists that I admire. To be a part of this lineup is a great opportunity. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
