Payton Moormeier

Payton Moormeier

Teenage singer, songwriter, guitarist, and viral creator Payton Moormeier just released the official music video for his debut pop single “Love Letter.” This track racked up over 1.5 million streams in a week. After a relationship ended abruptly leaving Payton with no closure, he was inspired to express the feelings she left him with on the track and he tells his story through airy guitar, hip-hop beat craft, and lyrical vulnerability, turning up with a signature style of his own. Music has helped the Georgia-born and North Carolina-raised singer gain the confidence to express his innermost thoughts through self-penned originals. After discovering Metallica at seven-years-old, his mom bought him a guitar, and Payton taught himself how to play by consuming countless hours of lessons on YouTube. He later widened his musical palette by listening to Post Malone, blackbear, and more. Payton began posting covers on social media when he was only 12, generating nearly 1 million views from a cover of Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself.” In between honing his chops and regularly creating online content, he posted a Tik Tok of Halsey’s “Without Me” that caught fire in 2018. Exploding on the platform, Payton has since attracted over 12 million fans on Tik Tok, 538 million “likes” and billions of views and impressions. As his profile rose, Payton focused on crafting his original solo debut. With more music to come, Payton hopes listeners and fans who watched him grow are inspired to chase their dreams too.  [...] Read More
