This emotional sound design has earned him a world-wide following, the admiration of notable collaborators like Grammy winners Rostam and RAC and Juno-award winner Ryan Hemsworth, nods from The FADER, Pigeons & Planes, Pitchfork and Flaunt, play on BBC 1, KCRW and SiriusXM, as well as playlisting on streaming services, Mr Suicide Sheep and Majestic Casual. He’s performed at SXSW and FIAC, and supported Shallou, George Fitzgerald, Ryan Hemsworth, Giraffage, Snail Mail and Golden Vessel.
2019 has seen Instupendo featuring on Toro Y Moi’s ‘Outer Peace’ LP, in Urban Outfitter’s Teenage Engineering OP-Z launch campaign, and in Cult Classic Magazine as a “creative shaping the future”. His latest EP, ‘Boys by Girls,’ was the first to feature his own vocals, marking Instupendo as a singer/songwriter/producer.
