Singer, songwriter, guitarist, and viral creator Payton Moormeier has released his anticipated new music video for single “Hard To Breathe.”
From the press release:
Directed by Youssef Ali, in the stunning visual, Payton can be seen strapped to a hospital bed seeking aid for the loss of a lover. The single is the follow up to his second single “Habits.”
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 13 million fans on Tik Tok, 660 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.
