tarting off local, Canadian artist PoppySeed has toured Western Canada. Following that tour he’s traveled abroad and performed in 5 European countries as well as opened up for international acts such as Raekwon and Mos Def.
With sounds comparable to Justin Timberlake, Twenty One Pilots and Imagine Dragons, PoppySeed is changing the game with his genre bending sound.
It is clear that PoppySeed has used inspiration from multiple genres on this innovative record Overboard, which oozes rock vocals & dance floor drops inducing a roller coaster ride of emotions.
Working with one of Canada’s hottest producers Hotbox Digital, we were able to connect with smooth, catchy instrumentals and melodies along with hard hitting hooks that added that complete sound to the track.
Overboard was written as a letter to oneself. It asks how badly do you want it, you’d better learn from prior mistakes and find your balance – which showcases the artists forward thinking attitude.
Speaking on his music Poppyseed says “I’m a product of what I’ve listened to and I’ve been a fan of a large variety of music”
If you have to put a label on my music,” said PoppySeed, “Call it Indie/Pop/Rock A genre that fuses my lyrics with dance pop/rock melodies. But it’s more; the slick and distinctive sound has a tendency to sneak up on you.”
PoppySeed has dedicated the tattoos on his legs to artists who’ve influenced his music. He’s got everyone from Erykah Badu to Tom Petty, Ray Charles to Chris Cornell, Andre 3000 to Kurt Cobain… The list goes on and on. PoppySeed has an undeniable appreciation for expression through art and a love for creating.
