Afternoons with Dan

Steven Christian in AltPress Q+A

Stephen Christian (former frontman of Anberlin, now focusing on Anchor & Braille) recently chatted with Brian Kraus from Alternative Press.

The two-part interivew is up now, and contains some cool insight into the last year of Anberlin, the recent life changes of him and his family, and (my favourite part) how he got a full-ride scholarship to a university.

I got my MBA from a university because I traded an Anberlin show for it. I said “Hey, if you give me a full ride scholarship, we'll play your college.” They said “Come play.” So we did a free show for them and they gave me a huge scholarship so I could get my masters degree.

Read the whole interview here (part 1) and here (part 2).
