Music had always been the focus of my short, 17-year-old, guitar-playing life in Austin, Texas. I was obsessed with The Beatles, Hendrix, Sinatra, and Sam Cooke. The Blues were my foundation. I hung with a crowd of young musicians who shared my love of the classics. We listened to vinyl. We played in bands. At first, my bluesy singing made the hooks come across as a sort of “blue-eyed soul” thing. I didn’t identify with that. The hooks I loved most had been sampled from old records. They contrasted the beat in a cool way. They felt distorted and fuzzy and their juxtaposition with modern music had an accidental magic. The summer I turned 19 I made this slow beat and wrote a hook over it called “Nice and Slow.” I used my sampled vocal approach and started sending the song around and playing it for people. The response was always, “Whoa! Where did you sample this from?” At that moment, my sound was born.

By the spring, my songs were gaining some attention. “Nice and Slow” and “White Lies” charted on Hype Machine and a few months later I signed with Atlantic Records. A major-label deal marked a serious second chapter in my creative life. Songs were no longer practice swings. I now had access to collaborators and studios that enabled me to indulge in new sounds. Though I remained a producer on all the tracks and played 90 percent of the instruments, the songs were elevated thanks to the input of the brilliant writers and producers I met. What began as an experiment in a basement lab blossomed into a larger-scale process, resulting in the songs on my EP, Intoxication. Lyrically, the songs on Intoxication personify love, money, and death as a drug, reflecting the way my submission to imagination has consumed me like a chemical.

My experiment became an abstract mind state that I want the listener to visit. The experiment of music has led me to places I never thought I’d go in this world. In 2016, I did shows in Australia, Germany, London, and all over the US. My travels have also led me to collaborations with artists around the world. I released a track called “Ghosting” with an amazing producer named St. Albion and also wrote/produced a track for a new artist from Australia named Mike Waters. As much as I’m focused on my own music right now, I look forward to one day spending a lot of time helping other people develop their own experiments.
