The pandemic has been a period of reflection and growth for Gus Dapperton. With the release of 2020’s Orca, Gus entered a new phase as an artist by exploring human pain and suffering, but also healing and redemption. His creative decisions in pursuit of a raw sound to match these raw emotions didn’t come easily. “I’m a huge advocate for putting myself in vulnerable positions in my music,” he says and admits that confronting these feelings “was a chance to be open that I was afraid of.” Gus spent this time pushing himself and, with the help of his friends and family, has come out on the other side stronger.
