Christofer Drew Ingle created his one-man-band NeverShoutNever in his young teens, where he quickly grew in popularity thanks to websites like youtube and the then popular myspace. While living homeless in Joplin, Missouri, Ingle did everything in his power to keep his spirits up, including writing one of his most well-known songs, On the Brightside. The song follows a young man who meets multiple different people while on a strange journey. Some are somber and full of regrets, but by the end of his journey, the young man sheds his regrets about life and becomes comfortable with himself and his life.
