My name is Mike Scorgie.
I’ve known Chris since 2006, I met him when he was playing with one of the acts on my label, Pressure Kill Common Style.
The first day I met him was in Montreal when PKCS were playing Pop-he flew out with the band (he recently replaced Rena as the bass player-ha!). We got to hang out a lot that weekend and I liked him immediately. I have nothing but really fond memories of hanging out with him. He was one of the nicest, funniest people I’ve met.
I wouldn’t say our friendship was terribly strong, but we did have a bond. Over the next few years we shared tracks that we made via email and whenever we were in the same city we would hang-out.
I have a few pictures from last year when Chris was touring with The Dodos in Edmonton. This was the last time I saw him. I got to hang out with him backstage and Rena and Chris came over to my place for a late night meal after the show.
I was devastated when I heard last night. I’m really sorry for your loss. He will truly be missed by many i’m sure. Best wishes in this tough time, Nikki.
