So as we understand Opvs was originally a duo, what made you decide to pursue solo acts, and do you have any plans to collaborate in the future?
Sean and I worked together for over two years growing Opvs, and it is crazy to look back at some of the things we were able to achieve together. He definitely made me a significantly better producer, and I think it is safe to say neither of us would be where we are at today without leaning on each other.
As a duo it can get hard to find your own artistic vision, and that is what we were struggling with. Making music is such a personal experience, and it can get hard to try to translate the state of mind you are trying to express in a song to someone else. Both of us grew a lot and started taking our sounds to different places, so we thought rather than hold each other back, lets just go for it on our own. We are still very good friends and support each other in any way possible, so I am excited to see where he takes his sound!
We aren’t collaborating on music at the moment but we are going to be playing a show together at the Mercury Lounge on April 28. I’ll be in the crowd wilding for his set and him for mine so I’m really looking forward to that.

VRS.US so great to have you on board! Can you give us a little background on you (your life, what got you into music, any other background that may be important) to start for the people who may not be familiar with you?
Thanks mate, it's great to be doing this release with you. My path in music started in rock music, before starting VRS.US I was playing with Dead Letter Circus on guitar and keys. That experience really shaped my interest in honing my skills in song writing. As I started to get more into electronic music I was really appreciating all the weird and futuristic sounds that could be made outside of a standard rock context. I guess that curiosity was the spark that started VRS.US.
