ARTIST PROFILE | BAYEM

Indiana ArtistPop

BAYEM is a 25-year-old modern pop artist and producer from Indianapolis, USA. Raised in a musical family, he was exposed at an early age to underground house, acid jazz, neo soul, and mainstream music. His songs interpret this diverse well of influence in a wholly unique way, with his raw perspective on life and culture being aptly manifest in his fresh lyrical depth and undeniable hooks.

After accruing millions of streams and glowing reviews of his singles Pressure, Thrill, Joyride, and Demonize, BAYEM issued the infectious 2023 singles Daze and Starstruck. These singles again expanded BAYEM’s growing cultural and critical success. Spotify has featured BAYEM in their coveted “Fresh Finds: Pop” playlist, and his single Joyride was featured in the 2022 Hulu original film “Sex Appeal.” In summer 2022, BAYEM’s single Pressure was included in the season finale of TV series The Kardashians, resulting in a 30,000% increase in Shazam searches for BAYEM’s music.

Not content to slow down, BAYEM issued his ambitious 2023 project OASIS - a concept EP with five exceptional new songs inspired by the futurism of internet vaporwave music and the nostalgia of the 1980’s progressive pop and new wave movement. Next, BAYEM prepares to release the smoldering, R&B-infused single “Regrets” on February 13, 2024, which showcases his vocal and melodic abilities in their strongest form yet.

Press outlets have called BAYEM a “mesmerizing, captivating new artist (A1234)” and “an artist that demands your full attention (CLOUT).”
