At just 22 years of age, A-Wall is creating some of the most exciting new music out there – all from his bedroom in Dallas, Texas. Self-described as “Pop Music off an Ambien,” A-Wall’s music draws from the EDM he first fell in love with in El Paso, TX fused into a distinct anti-pop sound. He writes, records, mixes, and produces his work, and even designs his own merch and directs his own videos. His creativity knows no bounds.
Behind the music, A-Wall comes off as a vibrant and smooth figure who champions and takes pride in his Hispanic roots. His passions range from immigration reform to remodeling old cars – his pride and joy a 1958 Ford Thunderbird that he had to sell to finance making his last album. So far it seems a gamble worth taking, as that album Helios featured lead single “Loverboy” catapulted A-Wall into the spotlight and onto music charts globally.
Now, 2 years later, recently having finished his Texas tour with Boy Pablo, he’s working on his 3rd album, Autopilot.
