Los Angeles resident and guitarist Chillhum [Ethan Bedell] reveals his latest work today, a gorgeous, pared down, acoustic duet with friend and fellow singer-songwriter, Devyn Sawyer.
Chillhum’s musical inspirations range from hip-hop, to reggae and R&B with his first love being electronic music, which is what inspired him to move to L.A in 2018 and pursue a career as a producer. With just seven songs under his belt, the Sur:Kit signees music career is still in its budding stages and despite his vast and varied tastes, Chillhum’s latest single ‘Waste My Time’ is a lesson that less is sometimes more.
‘Waste My Time’ is one of Chillhum’s favourite songs to date and understandably so, the song begins with Devyn’s delicate humming and a steady piano strum from Chillhum. Gradually, the song builds as Devyn’s gentle, raw vocals lead the track, supported by Chillhum on the guitar; playing along melodically, both in perfect harmony. In the background, some drums can be heard, softly keeping time as Chillhum’s vocals slowly creep into the song too, harmonising with Devyn as they duet over the beautifully simplistic instrumental.
