BIO:

Chris LaRocca is a vocalist and producer from Woodbridge, Ontario. Humble and accessible, he makes music that is ambitious and unpretentious, and just as accessible as his personality.

Chris started producing in 2014 after years in Toronto’s DIY scene as part of math rock/indie band Elos Arma. Self-taught as a musician and gifted with a soaring natural falsetto, Chris began by working on a combination of synths and drum machines running into one another, and no computer. After releasing a trio of humor-tinted EPs under the moniker Sextape, he dove deeper into the world of production and began to connect his vision for expansive pop music made with real emotion and a focus on quality and attention to detail.

It more than a year to create a batch of new music, mostly assembled by Chris during a time where he was worked 12-hour days at three jobs - tutoring, serving at an old age home and as in-home support for an elderly woman - to fund the project.

Chris self-released his first single, “Closer,” in February of 2017. The song was championed by Zane Lowe and the FADER, who lauded the track as “epic,” yet deeply personal. His second single, “Roses” was released in June 2017 with a debut EP landing later this summer.
