CLICK HERE to watch. Inspired by a past flame, 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,” was inspired after a relationship ended abruptly leaving him with no closure. He was inspired to express the feelings she left him with on the track and tells his story through airy guitar, hip-hop beat craft, and lyrical vulnerability, turning up with a signature style of his own.

Music has helped the Georgia-born and North Carolina-raised singer gain the confidence to express his innermost thoughts through self-penned originals. After discovering Metallica at seven-years-old, his mom bought him a guitar, and Payton taught himself how to play by consuming countless hours of lessons on YouTube. He later widened his musical palette by listening to Post Malone, blackbear, and more.
