Two Feet is the solo project of Bill Dess. A multi-instrumentalist, Dess is one of the few artists today who writes, plays, sings, and produces all his own music in his studio. Reviewers have called his music “mesmerizing” and noted his “silky vocals, low-key beat.” He is a blender of genres and makes some of the most raw and original, emotionally alive music today.
Two Feet’s songs are atmospheric and moody due to spacious arrangements and muscular hip-hop-tinged beats. Dess combines a soulful electric guitar with floor-rattling bass to create his unique sound. Blues and jazz accents add backbone and exacerbate the mournful undertones of Dess’ smoky, conspiratorial voice that knows of heartbreak, anxiety, and uncertainty.
