Blackbear (Writer of Justin Biebers’ “Boyfriend”), Debuts First EP, Foreplay
LOS ANGELES, CA - Blackbear, one of the music industries’ breakthrough singer/songwriters, releases his debut EP, “Foreplay”; the first segment of four EP series, today. Formerly known as underground Indie/Acoustic artist, Mat Musto, Blackbear has quickly evolved from his acoustic style to becoming a dub step/ pop sensation. The four-song EP features a mixture of pop, indie, dub step, and urban sounds, creating a merge of musical cultures within one.
Working closely with super-producer, Mike Posner, Blackbear has had several successes outside of his singing career as a progressive songwriter. Career highs include collaborations with Grammy-award winning artists such as Ne-Yo, Rivers Cuomo from the band Weezer, Pharrell Williams, Nate Walka, Bei Maejor, Bad Boys latest artist Machine Gun Kelly, and famous comedian/rapper Donald “Childish Gambino” Glover. Recently, Blackbear and Mike Posner joined forces to co-write and produce Justin Biebers latest single, “Boyfriend”, for his upcoming album “Believe”.
With the overnight success of Blackbears’ songwriting skills, his EP, “Foreplay”, could have not come at a better time. Over the next several months, Blackbear will begin touring and releasing a series of videos. His first performance will take place on April 28th in San Diego, CA. Blackbear states, “I plan to tell a story about sex while stirring controversy amongst the music scene, using my eclectic style and out of the box mannerisms”. He continues, “I hope to send a message musically that fans of all genres can relate to by discussing relevant, yet provocative subjects.” “Foreplay” is set to be one of the most-anticipated EP releases for 2012.
Starting Friday, “Foreplay” will be available exclusively on music streaming site Grooveshark, who have been actively helping launch Blackbear’s career over the past two years.
