Cap Carter, the emerging artist shares his new single ‘Reasons’, his first new music since his 2021 debut EP Notes.
‘Reasons’ is a song that started as a near acapella acoustic number then was elevated by reverb-drenched electric guitar and sparse, booming drums. The star of the show remains Cap’s gut-wrenching vocal performance and his self-aware melancholic lyrics. “Lay it on me,” sings Carter, facing up to the music, owning the good and bad. “The song is about forgiving yourself, accepting the things that you cannot change and owning the things you can,” says Cap, reflecting on his staunch declaration of acceptance of things that were and the things that are.
Not many artists are able to cut through the noise online and let their music shine through on social platforms. Cap Carters signature brand of genuine emotion and his ability to tell his own true stories of growth and heartbreak through a voice that demands attention, has seen the Manila-born, Western Sydney-raised Cap flourish online and galvanized a passionate fan base across the world, with a growing number of followers on TikTok (280k), Cap has amassed over 8 million streams globally.
His sold-out east coast tour will begin on July 22, with Cap supporting US artist Teddy Swims throughout September in Australia & New Zealand.
