Bleary Music

ABOUT

I am a Portland artist who began releasing work in Nov of ’20. My first project, primarily in the emo vein, received over 60k streams across platforms. I have been maintaining a 1-single-per-month schedule, focusing on west coast hip-hop and trap. All my songs are freestyles which are touched up to various degrees (from none to re-worded and recorded), but this collection of songs marks the end of the former.

In an effort to preserve flow, I have traditionally taken a minimal-edit, flow-first approach which has sacrificed meaning for style. But over time I’ve realized that style is not my strength (a down-side of my whiteness, no doubt) so I have begun taking the opposite approach. The work to come is much more meaning-dense, which has given this last collection of tracks the Final Freestyles.
