With a radio DJ as a father and a fascination with MTV, connecting to audiences has always been his biggest priority.
Listeners can feel the intimacy of Abacus sitting in a dark room with his keyboard writing these songs, as he did in his breakout single “I’ll Be That Friend”.
This upbeat, soulful track was inspired by a friend who came to his aid when he needed him most.
“As I was making it – I was feeling emotional at the time — and I just came up with the chords. I sat down in an empty room, I was playing the keys and it just evolved from there.”
His sound is infectious, and audiences are starting to catch on.
When asked what’s next, Abacus replied, “There’s a lot more to come. I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised.”
