20. May 2020

Pop music design student Chris Cronauer was delighted this week to receive the gold record for the hit "Viva la Dealer" by SDP feat. Capital Bra. The singer, songwriter and producer recorded some guitar riffs for the song.

Chris has been studying Pop Music Design at the Popakademie since 2016 and started his musical career in the same year with his debut single "Nummer Eins", which he recorded together with Stereoact and had charter success in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Since then he has continued this success as singer, co-author or producer for artists such as Nico Santos, Gestört Aber Geil and Vanessa Mai. For example, he co-wrote the successful song Rooftop by Nico Santos, which has since reached platinum status. The songwriter received further gold and platinum awards in Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Spain, among others. Chris has also written and produced film and TV music, including for Fack Ju Göthe and Tatort.

For his own music, which he himself describes as traditional folk pop, the 24-year-old recently signed a contract with Sony Music label RCA & Ariola. His first single "Mega" was released on May 13th, the release of his debut album "Dankbar" is planned for the end of summer.
