Pleasure's Paradox is the solo project of 20 year old Cristian Gonzalez. An artist born and raised in the suburbs of Illinois, Cristian began playing guitar and writing songs in middle school. He became heavily influenced by the writing styles of other singer songwriter type artists such as City and Colour, The Spill Canvas, and Bright Eyes. He started writing his own music and lyrics early in high school and would secretly play his songs in whatever local open mics and bars would allow him in. From his freshman year in high school up until now he has written and recorded a multitude of intimate acoustic songs in his home about struggles with anxiety and depression at a young age. His music has been known to attract listeners from teenage to adult years on a very personal level, because his songs are about personal experiences of heartache and loneliness which a person of any age can relate to. He will be releasing his first produced single "Can't Stop" in the summer of 2014 and will be releasing an E.P. later this year.
