His latest studio release, "How to Write a Pop Song," precisely reflects the challenges underground artists face daily—the external pressure that many of us grapple with, often forcing us to abandon our musical dreams just because we don't 'fit in' with the standards.

He breaks conventions with palpable originality and a distinctive auditory imprint, evident in energetic rhythms, harmonious vocal melodies, and his guitar proficiency.

The result is a refreshing sound with the highest quality production, showcasing not only his artistic development over the years but also highlighting his versatility in approaching new genres. Proving that true authenticity lies within us and is not defined by which genre you like to play.

Be Kind

"'be kind' Musically speaking, it's heavily inspired by 90s rock and contemporary music that pulls from that era (Alvvays, George Clanton, etc). As far as theme goes, it's our farewell to the people we never got a chance to get closure with. "be kind" is our first track to come out since we dropped our EP Garden in June, and it serves as a bridge into our next musical chapter. We went back to our DIY roots for this one and did everything (recording, producing, mixing, etc) on our own. Hope you enjoy, and if you do, we'd love to work together". -Wotts
