Hailing from San Diego, Alec’s massive creative ambition is supported by an equally immense sound - a Rorschach blend of styles encompassing the off-the-wall hype of a rapper like Lil’ Uzi Vert, the sleek expressiveness of a singer like Daniel Caesar, and the sharp-toothed attitude of your favorite punk band.

Alec Beretz has this unforgettable style to him that represents true artistry. It’s non comparable to anybody else, specifically catered to him. He’s an invigorating artist with high caliber in songwriting and passionate vocal delivery. I mean, despite the trail-blazing introduction, you’re bound to experience multiple feelings through the journey of “Peep This. Alec Beretz released a project with wild vocal talent and visceral lyrics weave through the gaps between clattering hi-hats and melodic synths in an experience that’s as much a mirror held up to the moment as it is a window into the thoughts and feelings of Alec himself.
