Christy, originally fromVizag, settled down in Chennai in 1995 and together with Ranjith began the task of assembling what is now one of India's top unsigned rock bands…

A self taught musician whose musical knowledge spans across instruments from Guitar (…but of course) to keyboards and drums, Christy is an all-out musician at heart. He is rated by his peers and senior musicians as one of the leading guitarists in the country. He can put a skip in your heart with some of his melodies and tear that very same heart out with his shredding.

The best description is what Leon has given him…"A Rolls Royce powered by a Ferrari engine". And through all this, Christy is a perfectionist…although the band agrees that he could slim down at the waist.

He is helped in his shredding duties by Washburn and Kramer guitars and Boss processing, which give him that distinctive tone that makes ears perk up whenever he plays. But when he's not at the guitar, he could be found watching Cartoon Network, playing pool or scratching his head trying to figure what to do with his MBA degree.
