WRKINSILENCE, from Riverside, California makes Emo/Cloud Pop, (with flourishes of Rap & R&B) for introverts. His ambiguous style explores themes of isolation, intimacy, and mental health. He remained largely anonymous for most of his career, using a mask to hide his identity. However, he recently decided to reveal his face in the music video for his single “Not Right Now”.
WRKINSILENCE’s new single “Jefe”, is conclusive to his antisocial character. It’s a dark rumination on trust issues. In just 2 years since his debut, he has amassed millions of streams and earned praise from athletes and celebrities such as Kevin Durant, Meek Mill, PnbRock, and Belly.
In an exclusive interview with Flaunt Magazine, the singer/songwriter speaks about his Southern California roots. He talks about his experience working in a gas station in one of the nation’s most dangerous cities, and why he decided to unmask himself.
