The first time we talked to Choker was in the summer of 2017. He had just self-released an album called PEAK and was still living in Michigan. Back then, he admitted that getting out more was a goal: "I spend more time in my head than I would like. I'm working on getting out more and experiencing things without analyzing or breaking down the unnecessary. The choice to be alone is a combination of preference and social anxiety, for the most part."
