Toronto Artist sunsetto Reflects on Lost Friendships with New Single “GREEN TXTS”

Few musical artists have the ability to capture today’s zeitgeist the way sunsetto does. While his sound is full-on forward-thinking pop – pulling from an all-over-the-map list of genres such as dance, rap, R&B and modern country – his lyrical themes dip and twist from the joyful to the profound. Previously released single, “PLANS,” laid the foundation of sunsetto’s emotionally-charged next chapter in music, and he’s now following up with “GREEN TXTS.”

“I'm a ‘90s baby so we’ve seen the birth of social media, and we are a bridge between the IRL and URL generations,” sunsetto says, noting that the diverse crop of songs on his forthcoming debut album move from being nostalgic to futuristic, moving between a sort of Fleetwood Mac energy to a Post Malone-esque hip hop energy on songs like “GREEN TXTS.” 

Growing up on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, sunsetto (aka Kyle Mischiek) split his time between music and skateboarding, and cultivated a community through both. After trying (and quitting) guitar and piano lessons, he started to rap and make beats in high school. Honing his pen, he attended several songwriting camps hosted by GRAMMY® and JUNO Award winning songwriter Gordie Sampson (Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban). 

During 2020, sunsetto shared a snippet of his single “don’t leave” on Instagram and organically amassed hundreds of thousands of streams. He followed up the initial viral buzz with further singles like “good connection” and “downtown.”
