Blue haired Bay Area native singer/ songwriter lilspirit has released a new single, “nothing2prove”, out now on 10K Projects/ Internet Money Records. Produced by Taz Taylor, Pharaoh Vice, and mjNicholas, “nothing2prove” highlights the 19-year-old’s luscious dream-pop vocals as they float alongside the reverberating bassline.
“nothing2prove” is the follow up to lilspirit’s December released single “droptopbitch”, which sits at over 7 million SoundCloud plays. “droptopbitch’s” accompanying music video was shot by Nicholas Jandora (Arizona Zervas, blackbear, lil skies), check it out HERE.
Born Geno Gitas, lilspirit grew up in the Bay Area and started playing piano as a little kid, later taking up guitar and drums. At age 14, he began producing his own music using GarageBand and beats lifted from YouTube, mining inspiration from SoundCloud’s prolific underground rap generation. After dropping out mid-way through high school, lilspirit headed down to LA where he continued working on his own material, increasingly tapping into his incredible talent for crafting melodies.
Last October, lilspirit uploaded his self-produced single “Ugly” to SoundCloud; the stark R&B-pop song, which speaks on the unapologetic truth about a toxic relationship, contributed to an exponential growth in lilspirit’s following, and he signed with 10K Projects and Internet Money Records. In addition to “droptopbitch” and “Ugly,” lilspirit has seen success with one of his most emotionally complex songs yet, “Come Home,” which brings his quietly powerful vocals to an acoustic-guitar-driven portrait of obsession and destruction.
