Boston singer, songwriter and rapper Rothstein describes his work as “what might happen if Raymond Carver wrote pop songs on trap beats.”
In under two years, Rothstein’s catalogue has amassed over 6M streams on Spotify alone. Since his breakout single “Get Your Shit Together” charted on the US Viral 50, Rothstein’s work has earned coveted, global editorial placements on New Music Friday, Mellow Bars, Chill Vibes, Rap Nation, and Midnight Chill, among others.
His debut EP HIGH WATER boasts production from the likes of Grammy nominee NOVA (6LACK “Prblms”) and hometown ace-in-the-whole Tee-WaTT (Mac Miller, Cousin Stizz), and has earned sync placements on the CW’s DC Comics inspired TV show Black Lighting.
Rothstein draws inspiration from a diverse array of musical and literary contemporaries and forebears, ranging from Future to Carl Thomas to Donald Fagen and Stephen Sondheim. He distills these influences into his incisive songwriting—pairing solemn balladry with relatable pop melodies and dazzling hip-hop lyricism.
