We are going derect to the point! Collie Wattz ‘s latest release is an EP that starts off with the track “Old Man Down South” which has a lo-fi retro feel with its blues-style vocals and folktronica beats. The second track, “John Brown” has a more ambient sound with nice electronic drums and a low bassline that blends well with the male vocals to create an indie-folk vibe. This is a big mix of genres, as you already know.

“I can do anything from soft acoustic to full-blown EDM. Been writing songs since I was in the 3rd grade.”Collie Wattz
His childhood in Birmingham, Alabama, exposed him to a variety of musical influences, and he wanted to see the country. To escape the deep south, he dropped out of high school in his senior year and moved to Southern California.
The artist later moved from California to Florida, and then back out west to Phoenix Arizona, before he discovered his way home after tiring of the bustle of big cities.
