The 21-year-old Canadian artist started recording in the basement of his parents’ home and started releasing music on Soundcloud while still in high school. He would steal his dad’s mic (Faber Drive) and ended up purchasing himself a laptop as recording quickly became his favorite hobby. After finalizing his image and sound, his numbers started rapidly increasing, gaining millions of streams over multiple platforms. He has collaborated with many artists on the rise such as Rxseboy, Guardin, and Snow. His genre can vary from chill-lo-fi to hype-punk, as he finds inspiration through older punk-rock bands as well as newer hip-hop artists such as G-Eazy and Madeintyo.
