Christof has also been chosen by Justin Vernon to open one of the massive Bon Iver Hammersmith shows at their current residency, he will be one of only two support acts featured on the run alongside Phoebe Bridgers. He will be opening the show on Monday 26th February

Talking about the album Christof said: “It’s taken me ten years of dragging myself around and playing to whoever would listen, putting out EPs in the hope that they would be heard, and frankly procrastinating in the hope that the elements would combine with enough force to kick my arse into making this album. These songs are the culmination of my experience of the world to date, the story of me and mine from growing up in the Netherlands, over to rural Ireland, here and now in London and everywhere in between. They’ll take you from urban sprawls, to nature’s wilderness, through fugitive love affairs, and home to your beer stained sofa bed (if you have one)”
