There’s a change of country and musical style for this young American from Iowa.
Now based in Paris, he became known thanks to his eponymous 2016 album, a hybrid of low-key pop, sensitive folk and vintage country. Back then he shared the stage with Lana Del Rey and Rufus Wainwright. Today he’s 26 years old and has a more electro-soul sound. This new modern direction, combined with his clever songwriter qualities, can be heard running through his album, aptly called Modern World. Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Robin Hannibal (known for his work with Kendrick Lamar and Little Dragon), the first single from this second album is called Sweet Lie and successfully showcases this new direction. The metamorphosis is complete.
