HALO’s music plays much like a movie – a series of portraits painted to the beat of his flows. Born in Montreal, the 22 year old artist grew up in a home filled with music by his dad. He introduced him to jazz music, passed on his passion for vinyls, his love for writing. That’s the baggage HALO drew from to draft his first ideas back in 2018. He quickly identified with the hip hop genre and artists such as sean, Laylow and Hamza. He got to shaping his introspective sound, guided by his search for genuine authenticity. HALO set his sights on France early on, connecting with exciting young artists riding the new wave such as HELL-YES. His raw talent caught the attention of Montreal label Cult Nation who joined the project in the fall of 2022.
HALO released his first songs in the spring of 2023 and celebrated the launch of the 2nd single with a release party in Paris. He made the most out of the trip by meeting with producers Wealstarcks and PRINC€, in addition to laying the groundwork for his new project BAD JAZZ – a collaboration with some the most exciting rising talents of the french new-wave, such as HELL-YES, Tori and Lone. The innovative new project will be released on November 24, via Cult Nation.
