The 2nd Way is one guy smushing his multiple musical personalities together. Quitting the quasi-capitalist grind in early 2020, he moved into his grandparents’ empty home and recorded his self-titled album. A multi-instrumentalist songwriter, The 2nd Way believes genres exist to be blended, dynamics are the soul of good music, and that tragedy and comedy are conjoined twins.

Written and recorded throughout the bleakness of 2020, the debut album is a rumination on maturity, monogamy, mortality, and gratitude. The release is equal parts groove, dissonance, acoustic twang, electronic grandeur, bubblegum bop, and gothic anxiety.
