Profound lyrics that are neither too pretentious, nor simplistic — on a variety of topics (and not 99% love or break-up songs)

Distinct melodies that instantly captivate the listener, keep them in tune with the song, and deliver a sense of closure

A musical style that combines influences from a variety of genres that you like best, but rather than sounding like a jarring mishmash of everything you’ve heard before, it combines the nuances of each favorite genre in a delicate and seamlessly crafted way with laser-sharp and precise production
