Today’s song is “Run Up” by Wav Loyel. The Indianapolis, Indiana artist is a singer, musician, and producer who uses his unorthodox life experiences as a template for the creation of his music, sharing the deepest parts of his mind with his audience.
Loyel began his musical journey in October of 2017 by teaching himself how to create and produce his own instrumentals and vocals on an iPad. He then added a laptop and guitar into his arsenal in order to enhance the quality and sound of his music.
This track showcases Loyel’s love for lyrical wordplay, melodic vocals, heavy beats, and booming production. Against catchy bouncing beats, Loyel puts his heart and soul into his music. He says,
“This song is a statement to the world that I’m dedicating myself to something I love, and I have to continue to make plenty of sacrifices along the way in order to achieve my goals. Some people might not like that, so… ‘Run Up.’ “
