vaultboy, is a singer-songwriter from Jacksonville, Florida who first began experimenting with music during high school and has been perfecting and growing his craft ever since.
Despite experiments with livestreaming himself singing, performing and also gaming full-time under a previous alias, it wasn't until late 2020 that he posted his debut TikTok as vaultboy, a name that pays homage to his love of video games, specifically the Fallout series. He began sharing his original music and found, with his fun and relatable lyrics, that he was able to deeply connect with the audience that has grown around him.
In early 2022, vaultboy released his self-titled debut EP including viral hit 'everything sucks' which spent two weeks at #1 on the Spotify global viral chart and hit #1 on the QQ Music Western music chart in China. Regionalised feature-remixes of 'everything sucks' including versions with Korean-American artist Eric Nam, British artist Gracey and Chinese rapper Lil Jet have helped the record has generate several hundred millions of streams worldwide and allowed vaultboy to begin to build a truly global fanbase.
As an artist birthed in the pandemic, vaultboy's main connection with his audience has been online where he has accumulated over 2 million followers across his main social channels to date.
Following successful stints on the road in 2022 supporting British band New Hope Club and Tennesse alt-pop band Nightly, in November vaultboy announced his debut headline tour with dates across North America in February 2023.
Besides creating his own music, vaultboy has written with the likes of gnash and most recently co-wrote Sarah Barrios’ single “Have We Met Before?” featuring Eric Nam. vaultboy has also began to build in the Web 3.0 space with his debut music NFT release on Sound XYZ which rapidly sold out of all 25 editions and generated 2.5 ETH.
