South Carolina native Chris Buxton is a singer, rapper, and songwriter of alternative hip-hop with pop and indie undertones.
He views Childish Gambino and Kid Cudi as some of his primary influences, but he also finds a way to mesh the sounds together while adding an extra “pop” feel to his records. Led by his first release “Remember” which accounts for over 3 million plays across streaming platforms, he quickly followed the song with a number releases in 2016. Ultimately, this pushed him to release a mixtape titled “Condo 8” which had songs such as “Time” and “In Too Deep”. In 2017, Chris released his first studio project titled “Suburban Popstar” while being a member of Skizzy Mars’ collective Penthouse Music. The project contained songs like the introspective “Mary, Lucy, I” and the summertime ready “Swerve”. After the project, Buxton went on to take a personal break from music to develop his craft. Between 2017-2018, Chris took a more songwriter approach by writing for Ted Park on his song “Next to U” off his new album “They Don’t Know”. He was also a feature on Scott Helman’s “Ripple Effect [91goat Remix]”. At the end of 2018, Chris released his project titled“Nostalgia” which was carried by its self titled single “Nostalgia”. Months later, Chris teamed up with North Carolina producer Te’Jani, they are said to have a lot of singles on the way in the last quarter of 2019. First single is coming out this July and it’s titled “Best Friend”. - Manny Lozano & Kieron Louloudis
