Creating songs that allows listeners to feel different emotions is what payton loves the most about being an artist and with each release, he offers his truth and inner-most thoughts through the best way he knows how: music.
“From the moment ‘Drive Away’ was written I knew it was a special one. I’m always excited about the music I release, but sometimes there’s the one that gets you very very hyped. I’ve been waiting for a long time to get this one out,” shares payton. “I hope it brings the same positive energy it’s given me since day one when they listen to it. Very excited to perform this one on tour and hyped to get on the road and perform across the country for the first time. Summer 2021 is going to be crazy.”
Since his debut one year ago, payton has released a string of buzzworthy singles that ooze emotion and vulnerability about the complexities of love including the recent release of insomniac guitar anthem about overthinking “3AM”, the stripped down version “threeam.mp3,” and “Nevermind” which detail the feeling of being stuck in a relationship and not being able to let go. The single “Don’t Go” touched wanting a flame to stay so he can be his best self. His high octane music video for “Hard To Breathe” showed payton strapped to a hospital bed seeking aid for the loss of a lover. On “Habits,” a hummable riff cuts through hand claps, keys, and a skittering bounce as he delivers a hypnotic hook, “I can’t seem to fall asleep, cuz thoughts of you and me always seem to haunt my dreams, it was better you and me.” Payton‘s debut single, “Love Letter,” (released April 2020,) was inspired after a relationship ended abruptly leaving him with no closure that inspired him to tells his story through airy guitar, hip-hop beat craft, and lyrical vulnerability, turning up with a signature style of his own.
The Georgia-born and North Carolina-raised singer has been steadily building his fanbase over the past few years through his music and content and has attracted 40 million streams, nearly 14 million fans on TikTok, 760 million “likes,” and billions of views and impressions. With more music on the way, payton has become a disruptive force in pop and alternative music.
