Michael Wavves’ ascension has been of the ‘long-game’ design. The Pennsylvania based artist first emerged in 2015, releasing singles and music videos online while being a middle school teacher in his hometown of Lebanon, Pennsylvania.
Influenced by contemporary Hip-Hop artists including Kanye West, Drake, Lil Wayne, and Kid Cudi, along with crooners like Post Malone, The Weekend, and Mike Posner, Wavves bends genres to create a smooth blend of melody-oriented Hip-Hop fused with an electronic vibe. This combination of styles is accented with an energetic live show, which Wavves built through grassroots touring after the release of his debut EP Nights on Vine in 2018. In 2019, he returned with the EP Purple Heart, which debuted at #12 on the iTunes R&B charts.
