Knowing yourself is half the battle when creating great art. Oftentimes, musicians get lost in trying to keep up with their peers and forget how to create from their own heart. That ability has not been lost on Seattle native Pompeiii, whose music is shockingly true to himself and carries no DNA from other artists.
Pompeiii’s sense of self can sometimes come off as self deprecating. On “The Love We Know” he sings of doubt and romance as two simultaneously existing concepts. It’s this honesty, however, that the magic of his music lives in; there’s nothing that Pompeii holds back from his fans. From his family and home life to his upbringing Pompeiii bears all, for better or for worse.
Listening to artists who have a strong sense of self has been known to help fans through tough times. We hope that’s true for anyone who peeps Pompeiii’s music. Follow him on Instagram below.
