Indie-Pop / Psychedelic
Los Angeles-based up and comer Reaper is appealing from all angles. The rising engineer-turned-artist doesn't fit into one box, but rather exists simultaneously as edgy and soft, experimental yet familiar and darkly playful. Combining dreamy production elements and his confidently relaxed vocals, Reaper's impressive vocal agility blends effortlessly into his synth-heavy tracks. After debuting in 2017 with his self-titled EP, Reaper returned a mere year later with his project heady. Both collections are impressive demonstrations of Reaper's artistry, as he flaunts his ability to impress musically but uses his talents tastefully.
Though Reaper is still on the rise, he has already accumulated over 80,000 monthly listeners and sparked the attention of major players in the industry. His most popular song to date, "HEADY," is a lightweight indie delight, complete with his signature vocals and production. Though he is currently dipping his toes into performances, Reaper will indefinitely make major waves in the touring realm once he dives in.
