@Niko John. You don't have to be popular to be inclined to make a Solo EP. Maybe he just really wanted to make a Solo EP? What a stupid thing to say
The only people that would make a solo anything, who are already in a popular band, are people that have enough talent to make it worthwhile. I don't see anything special about Chantry besides him being a nice guy and the music shows that; it is just an average pop EP to me.
